THE WHO: A Little Reunion
The Who had a small reunion Saturday when Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey were backed by their former drummer, Kenney Jones, at a charity show at Jones’s polo club in England.
Jones, who joined after the death of Keith Moon in 1978, backed them on a set that included “I Can’t Explain,” “Substitute,” “The Kids Are Alright,” “Pinball Wizard” and “5:15.” The show, dubbed Rock N Horsepower, was a benefit to raise funds for the fight against prostate cancer, which Jones once had.
Also on the bill were Jeff Beck, John Lodge of The Moody Blues, Mick Hucknall and Genesis guitarist Mike Rutherford. And among the other songs performed:
•Beck and his instrumental version of The Beatles’ “A Day in the Life.”
•Hucknall singing The Faces’ “Stay with Me” and “Debris.”
•Beck sitting in with Hucknall on The Troggs’ “Wild Thing.”
•Rutherford and his Mike and the Mechanics singer Tim Howar doing the Genesis song “I Can’t Dance.”
•Lodge performing “Nights in White Satin.”
•Townshend, Hucknall and others joining in on The Rolling Stones’ “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It),” which was recorded with Kenney Jones and not Charlie Watts on drums.
