Brighton: Coldstream, no date [circa 1970]. A set of photos consisting four near mint black and white period print photographs (on three sheets) of The Who live in concert at Sussex University, 19th October 1970, signed by the band in blue ink; one image of Pete Townsend leaping, signed by the guitarist, one close-up of Roger Daltrey, additionally inscribed 'Cheers' by the singer, and one sheet of photographic paper with two identical shots (one reversed) twice signed by bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon (i.e. each signing each picture). With photographer's stamp (John Coldstream) to rear. A superb, uniform set of images from the classic 'Who's Next' era, each photo approx 10 x 8 inches in uniform common mounts, ready for framing. The Who rose to rock and roll stardom initially as part of the "British Invasion" and then became the loudest band on the planet; their live performances were infamous and for most of the 1970s they were listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the loudest rock band in the world, measured at 130 decibels, achieved by John Entwistle's resonant low end and Pete Townsend's trademark windmill power chords. As a result of their rock'n'roll lifestyles the band has sadly suffered two drug-related casualties; the outrageous drummer Keith Moon died in 1978, and virtuoso bass guitarist John Entwistle died in 2002.
