Boy About Town Number 44: Join Together
Chapter by Chapter excerpts from Boy About Town: A Memoir, published by Windmill Books/William Heinemann.
Charlton Athletic were the third South London football team. They weren’t as well supported as Crystal Palace, and those supporters weren’t as menacing as Millwall’s, but they had the biggest terrace in the country, and that was a good enough reason for The Who to play there. I’d already stood on that East Terrace with Jeffries, to watch Palace lose (of course). And The Who had already played Charlton, in 1974, before I’d started going to concerts. Now, two years later, they had announced a return visit, for Whit Monday, and the thought of seeing them in concert, at a football ground, was more excitement than I could bear. There was no way I going to miss out.
