    The Who’s set at the Charlton Athletic Football Ground in London in 1976 was their second appearance there in three years. During a long and rainy day which saw Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Little Feat, The Outlaws, Streetwalkers, and Widowmaker play, The Who put on an epic, blistering set before 80,000 (or 60,000 depending on the source) fans. This show is also among the very last Who shows in the UK with Keith Moon.

    I saw Plant in 2008 or so and when the lights went low and the intro to No Quarter started up...goosebumps. I also remember looking at his huge silhouette on the wall and thinking how cool it was because in silhouette form he still looked he did in 73. :D

    Of course Hendrix. That would pretty much be the icing on the cake. His sense of timing live (from the videos I’ve seen) is amazing.
