Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Pete Townshend: the ultimate busker

Sometimes a man with a guitar provides a bigger soundscape than a full band. This guy can still bring it, and in this clip you get a good look and listen at the clever things he does with his left hand. As for his right hand, jump to 3:30 and learn what kick-ass strumming is all about.

Still laying low here at What The Hell, but at least we’re in the new house now, safe and sound. Normality right around the corner? Maybe when the washer and dryer arrive and a proper bed… Till then, it’s indoor camping!

    Yeah, he can bring it alright. It was starting to droop for me before that 3:30 part but that was worth it. I made the mistake of missing Paul McCartney play here last year and well, I’m not going to bemoan that. I’m just glad I’m going to see Wire in May. Cross that one off the list.

      Yes, it was a little strange hearing that song in down-tempo mode, but he definitely breathed life into with that hyper strumming of his. I saw McCartney at the Candlestick concert last summer and I’m glad I did, for the experience alone. You do have to be careful with the aging rockers, though. Sometimes the voice is shot and they forget their own lyrics…

    Glad the moving has ended! (HAH, just kidding, we both know that never ends…)

      Not sure when the moving will be “over.” Seems to be a state of mind as much as anything…
