The Who Guitarist Walks Off stage

Tuesday, November 6th 2012 10:30

Pete leaves due to concert being "too loud".

Although they claimed the title of Loudest Band In The World in 1976, The Who guitarist Pete Townshend reportedly walked offstage at a recent gig in Sunrise, Florida, after he became angry with sound technicians. 

Townshend has had to deal with hearing problems since drummer Keith Moon blew up his drumkit on a TV show in 1967. He had expressed a possibility of retiring in recent years if his tinnitus proved too much of a problem, but has since found a monitoring system he is happy with.

Simon Townshend tweeted after the show: "Pete walked off tonight because it was too loud. Was a good show but had some technical problems."
