My parents went to see Herman’s Hermits in California, in 1967 or thereabouts. The opening band? The Who. The motherf*cking WHO, opening for this clean-cut, mother-lovin, utterly tame goodness. The concertgoers (and my parents) were, quite understandably, shocked to observe the situation evolving onstage with The Who, what with the complete annihilation of their instruments and all. Hard act to follow.
