Of my current writing regrets, high on the list is that I never found a chance to mention that when Saxton Hale firebombed Woodstock, the bands and audience retaliated with catapults and trebuchets.
Hippies they might have been, but it’s not like The Who would have willingly missed a chance to weaponize Keith Moon.
I would second this, as the Smothers Brothers explosion of Keith’s drum kit was essentially due I each member “spiking the punch” without realizing everyone else was as well.
The Who were quite violent/dangerous in a way. Daltrey a legendary brawler who was in the bad Pre-Tommy because he could beat everyone else up. Townshend wielded his guitar as a machine gun as had pop art aspirations of using destruction as an artistic statement. Keith was Animal.
If one had to make Mods for The Who in TF2 (and that term is so very much a pun here) it might go something like this:
John: Heavy or Medic, both fit.
Keith: Demo man
Roger: Saxton Hale, because honestly there’s no other character in the game who is a golden heard, bare cheated brawler other than Hale. And I cant think of anything else that might fit.
So yeah, when Hale attacks Woodstock, The Who is without a doubt the band to fight back.
Hell, Pete almost beat up Abbie Hoffman during their set.
