Rock godfathers The Who close muddy Glastonbury
By Iona Millership
GLASTONBURY (Reuters) - Rock godfathers The Who took to the main stage late on Sunday to close the Glastonbury festival, capping three days of rain, mud and music at the world's biggest greenfield music and arts festival.
In a torrential downpour original members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, accompanied by drummer Zak Starkey and bassist Pino Palladino, ran through hits from "My Generation" and "Pinball Wizard" to Townshend's anthem of political disillusion "Won't Get Fooled Again."
As they sang songs spanning their 40-year career, a screen at the back of the stage showed images from the 1960s and 1970s.
"It may be muddy, it may be wet but you were fantastic!" Daltrey shouted at the end as he embraced Townshend.
