The Doubting Writer Finds His Voice

Musical Monday: Bell Boy

We listened to a bit of The Who’s 1973 rock opera, Quadrophenia last night as we came home from dropping the Magpie back off at college. Spring break went fast! So here’s a snippet of a 1974 concert of the band performing Bell Boy. Gotta love Keith Moon. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more watchable drummer. Doesn’t look like he had much fun with those headphones, though.

I thank you all for weighing in and answering my question from Friday’s post. I’d love to hear more of your thoughts on this subject, and will probably address it again sometime in the hopefully-near future, in some way. My brain is a little muddled from yesterday’s trip, and I’d still love to hear from more of you on the subject. Have a great week!

  1. It's so funny to look at old videos like that and see microphone and guitar cords everywhere. What a mess of wires. And, yeah, those headphones weren't cooperating very well. 🙂

  2. Very old school! Takes me WAY back. Now I feel old! And thanks for letting me know about Friday's post. I would've missed it since I never blog on Fridays. Very interesting, too.

  3. Spring break? Would you believe it's autumn down here, and still acting like summer? Headphones are annoying and hope you had a safe trip with the Magpie. Now I must go back and find out what Friday's post was about!

  4. Gotta love the film Quadrophenia because it reminds me of Brighton, where I grew up. Makes me smile although I was a bit late for the mod era!
