Monday, June 27, 1966

(55 years ago)

Pete and co-manager Chris Stamp fly to New York City, the first trip by any member of The Who to America. Shortly after his arrival, Pete attends a luncheon for Herman's Hermits who are beginning their 1966 U.S. tour. A reporter from Datebook magazine gets an interview from an irritable Pete while he is photographed by Linda Eastman."I don't know why I'm here, at somebody else's luncheon...Two of your lousy record companies haven't been able to get us a hit in America. Without a hit record, we can't get a visa to perform." When a girl recognizes him and asks if Keith is there because her brother wanted Keith's drumsticks, Pete snarls "He's not here. And if he were, I'm quite sure he wouldn't give you his drumsticks."
