15/3/14 – Pete Townshend – Magic Bus – Live On Later – 1996 – Anthology – 2005

Pete Townshend B:WWhilst executing a finely tuned Skype guitar lesson this evening, it came to pass that the fast rock rhythm might be succinctly illustrated by this performance of Pete Townshend on Jools Holland’s Later from 1996. Although the songwriting and even Townshend’s singing are a fine example of the man’s talent and the 1952 Fender Telecaster’s biting tone might impress, the sure highlight is his rhythm guitar playing. Chopping away and spinning his wrist like a top, simultaneous feel and precision – a thorough physical and sensory pleasuring.
