The Who play the Glenlyn Ballroom in Forest Hill opening for The Rolling Stones. Pete, who has incorporated an arm-swinging move he saw Keith Richards perform as his own signature guitar move, apologizes for the appropriation to Richards. Richards says he doesn't know what Pete's talking about as it turns out he was merely limbering up before the show.

"I thought I was copying Keith Richards," he told Sound's Steve Peacock, "So I didn't do it all night, and I watched him and he didn't do it all night either. 'Swing me what?' Keith said. He must have got into it as a warming up thing...but he didn't remember, and it developed into my sort of trademark."
