"This shot was, arguably, the last great Who tour -- the whole '76 year. That was the last time Keith Moon played drums for them before he died, and that was the last time the Who played Winterland. They played two shows with a day off in between. They were incredible performances, and they were really on. I think a friend of Moon's from LA came up and had some mescaline. So we did magic mushrooms before the show.
I remember shooting part of the show from a television camera position and shot part of the show from the pit in the front. There was a balcony in the back that was closed off, so I went up there, but by that point I was tripping pretty hard. And you know it was like, 'Wow, oh, what a show.'
This is right at the end of their encore, and it turned out to be a really iconic image. Pete had thrown his guitar up, and everybody in the whole place was on their feet and they were roaring, and the whole building was just shaking. I remember Moon got up and then collapsed over the drum kit - cymbals fell onto the ground and Townshend and Entwistle ended up grabbing him, one by each ankle, and dragging him off stage."
