Pete Townshend’s coat

by Regis Boff

So he shows up with this gigantic puffy coat at the beginning of a winter tour. It had to be continuously worn because it was far too large to carry. We added a roadie to carry it when he got into a limo. The kid met the car before he got out. He soured badly after realizing it had no buttons and had to be held shut. A few of us barely got any sleep because we were laughing so hard. The coat disappeared in the middle of the tour.
