April 2017 - #Atozchallenge - Wow it's W

W is for The Who --

We got a chance to see them when they had a make up show in Oakland.  They had had to cancel an earlier show because Roger Daltrey got sick.  Being another one of those iconic groups, I felt it was important to see them before they stop touring.  We take BART over to Oakland and my husband was having such pain in his leg from a blocked artery that we had to stop every few steps to let him rest.

My daughter, Amanda, came over to visit and helped me decide on the background papers.  Then I added the "extras."

Even though this was just a couple of days before our anniversary, I forgot to take our usual concert picture so I used the owls to represent us.

My husband didn't think they really put their all into the show but I thought it was good. 

It was Peter Townshend's 71st birthday so it was a bit special.

Ringo Starr's son, Zak Starkey, is their drummer.  He did a great job.

They pretty much covered their hits and talked about the last 50 years.

There was a good write up in the paper the next day and I am happy when I can include that in my album.

So, better late than never I say.  I only have two more letters to cover and then I really will have completed the challenge.  I have ordered the pictures so it will be a bit, but I'm sure you don't mind waiting :)

The challenge is officially over for this year but you can still click over to the main A to Z Challenge page to see what other participants have come up with for this letter.


  1. This is one of those legendary groups that any serious rock concert aficionado would want to be able to say they've seen. I have not. This is a great addition to your concert trophy shelf.

    1. Yes, Arlee! I am glad we were able to see them. I got started late in the concert game so when groups like this come around I try to catch them. Never know when they won't be around anymore!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
