Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    From the private collection of Harvey Goldsmith

    For Harvey Goldsmith The Who are the greatest rock band of all time. The way that they performed on stage was full of energy and excitement which had not been seen before. They always did something new onstage to 'wow' and shock their audience. Early on in their gigging days the bands' renowned after show parties often resulted in the venues dressing rooms being wrecked. As the venues began banning The Who from performing, they quickly realised it would be wise to take the party back to their hotel. Harvey was one of the entourage who witnessed Keith Moon throwing a TV out of a hotel window, for the first time. However, Harvey would often take himself off early as he would have too much to do the following day. He recalls one afterparty which took place at Five Bridges Hotel in Newcastle. After leaving the raucous celebration early on, he was woken the next morning by the hotel manager to discuss the huge damage his hotel's function room and foyer had sustained from the revelry from the night before. Harvey, as the promotor and organiser of the tour, was the hotel manager's point of call. However on this occasion the manager was thrilled as it meant that all the snagging and issues he had with the premises could now be fixed without calling on his insurance.
