 			Pete Townshend makes special appearance

 			 				The Who’s Pete Townshend made a surprise appearance at Eels’ gig at London’s St James’ Church last night (January 17).


 The gig was a one-off solo show by Mark ‘E’ Everett, to mark the release of his new book: ‘Things The Grandchildren Should Know’ and the band's first 'best of' compilation, 'Essential Eels'.


 Everett played songs spanning his musical career, including ‘Ugly Love’, ‘Bus Stop Boxer’, ‘I Like Birds’, ‘Flyswatter’ and ‘Grace Kelly Blues’ on either guitar or piano, and invited fans to read from his book between segments of the show.


 For the last book reading, Everett invited “Pete” up from the audience, after which The Who’s Pete Townshend climbed on stage to give the reading.


 Earlier in the show, Everett had sent a fan back down to the pews after he realised he was highly intoxicated. “How many beers have you had?” Everett asked the fan, named Ryan, to which he replied “Six”. “Get out of here,” Everett said, sending Ryan to his seat.


 Everett signed copies of his book after the show for the first 200 fans who had entered the gig to gain special wristbands.
