Over the years I had forgotten about this, but just got reminded of it today... On this date back in 1967, Classic Rock pioneers The Who began their first U.S. tour as the opening act for... Herman's Hermits!

Imagine The Who, loud and full of attitude, destroying their instruments, kicking over amps and microphone stands... as a warm up to the very "pretty" Peter Noone singing "Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter!"   What a calamity!
