As seen at 気に入ったもの。D.O.A.’s Joey shithead is pictured here holding one of his guitars, and not only is it quite a looker ( I’m partial to black finish/ gold hardware, as well as to the black/ gold scheme of Marshall amps ), but you can just tell the thing plays like butter. Want to touch.

From a great collection of photographs of The Who playing at the Kinetic Playground in Chicago on May 31, 1969. Jump, Pete, Jump! Also, if you’re looking for something to watch today, the making of Quadrophenia.

Future Days – Ege Bamyasi – Tago Mago – Soundtracks – Monster Movie. Repeat.
