>From The Lawrence Journal-World:

Q: I just watched “The Kids Are Alright” again, which opens with a clip of The Who performing on your show. What do you remember about that taping?

A: The explosion. What I thought about, too, is these groups would come over and they’re so cocky. Sometimes I felt like the hayseed standing around when they came to OUR show. They’re all so full of themselves. But The Who were really hot at the time. I think Bette Davis was on that show. She was up in years and probably standing around smoking a cigarette or something. The controversy was The Who always loaded their (bass) drum so that it exploded. But the crafts union and CBS wanted to do it. And they had too many charges in the drum. It darned near killed Pete Townshend.
