The two-parter in _Trouser Press_ pushing "Chinese Eyes"?

If I don't have the place right, I'm pretty sure about the time.

I still laugh when thinking of the other three teasing 
Daltrey with the moniker "Duchess" for his use of Dippity-Doo
to keep his hairdo in place. (Barnes, page 65).

FWIW, (and not much, because it's Dave Marsh, probably the single
rock writer I respect the least) _Before I Get Old_ goes on (AND ON)
about gossip he has no idea existed re: Townshend's brief spell living
in Kit Lambert's apartment. 

>From page 120:

"One can imagine that Pete and Kit's joint living arrangement
caused some talk at the time, however."

Bad enough, right?  Next paragraph:
