Rachel Fuller - Bedford Arms, Balham - 18th October 2005

It was nice to hear Pete Townshend and guests soundchecking with "I'm One" whilst we waited in the main bar in the Bedford. It certainly gave a taste of what was to come later.

For the main show, Mikey Cuthbert, Foy Vance and Simon Townshend played (and were all very good). Rachel was on next, followed by "special guest", Pete Townshend (or "Pete Towsend" as the billboard on the door stated!!). Rock legend up close and personal in a pub environment - rarely does it get better than that!

You forgot that Simon Townshend had a rather dodgy woolly hat and that there was a rather attractive blonde barmaid!!!

I did indeed forget both of those things!

Simon often seems to go for wolly headgear indoors.

As for the barmaid - it's nice to see someone enjoying their job and making an effort with the customers!!
