One day like today...
1965
"My Generation " backed with "Out In The Street (You're Gonna Know Me) " is released in the U.S. It peaks at #74 in Billboard and #99 in Cash Box and becomes one of the more popular singles with American garage bands. On the same day in Britain Melody Maker breaks the story of the near firing of Roger. They claim that Roger has been fired and will be replaced by Boz Burrell of the group Boz's People. Manager Chris Stamp denies the rumours in "The Who split mystery. " However, the rumours are at least partly true (Boz Burrell may have been considered but later said he was never approached for the job). By this time Roger had already begged for his job as lead singer and, after saying he would become a "peaceful perce " and would no longer pummel the rest of the band, was accepted back into the group. Keith, the main target of Roger's tantrums, immediately uses the non-violence clause to make ceaseless fun of Roger.

1971
Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy hits the U.S. charts. The album, considered by many to be the best-ever Who compilation, is released just as The Who cross over the five-year mark during which five percent of The Who's record royalties had to be paid to their first producer Shel Talmy as a result of his 1966 lawsuit. Many of the singles, so familiar to The Who's British and European fans, are heard first here by most U.S. Who fans. The album peaks at #11.
The Who open their second 1971 U.S. tour at the Charlotte (North Carolina) Coliseum. They are the first rock act to sell out this venue. Keith greets the crowd, "It's nice to see so many people in Charlotte. I didn't know there WAS this many people in Charlotte! " The pre-recorded tapes mess up and Pete almost drags Bobby Pridden over the amplifiers.

What Rolling StoneQuadrophenia presentation as "Quadrophenia, " "Cut My Hair " and "The Rock " are dropped. Before the show, Keith gets dosed with PCP and, after playing groggily throughout the concert, passes out towards the end of the show. Pete calls out for a drummer to replace Keith and 19-year old Scott Halpin is chosen from the audience to take his place. The Who plus Halpin play "Smokestack Lightning, " "Spoonful " and "Naked Eye " before calling it a night. The show is simulcast on radio stations KSAN, KOME and KZAP and unofficially videotaped in black and white by promoter Bill Graham. Keith's passing out and a short clip of Halpin's performance are included in the 30 Years Of Maximum R&B video.

The Who begin their 1975 North American tour in Houston at The Summit. The show is recorded on videotape but it has not been released to date. John Entwistle gets caught between the pincers of Roger telling him to turn his volume down and Pete telling him to turn it up. Frustrated, John smashes the head off his bass in the middle of the last song and walks off the stage. It takes some cajoling to get him to return for the final bow. Tensions are relieved at an after-show party that turns into an orgy. Keith and some others in The Who's entourage are photographed being orally serviced by topless groupies. The cops are called in and John and stage manager John "Wiggy " Wolff are arrested for allegedly assaulting the police. John, wearing a Confederate officer's uniform finds the policeman who has arrested him shares his last name. When John tells him his name is also Entwistle, the policeman thinks John is making fun of him! The two Johns are soon released
