Yes Scratchwood was the choice back then as there weren't too many places open after we'd finished work. It was handy as we used to slip through the service road as a shortcut
It was OK for a coffee
Sometimes we'd get on the M1 & carry on to Toddington
Thinking back, I'm probably lucky to have survived. Great days!
What made thinks worse though was I'd just get back home to bed at about 4.00am when this fucking blackbird would settle on top of the street light outside my bedroom window & start singing it's bloody heart out!

Re: Keith Moon
Here's a funny thing that happened to me once
Back in the 70's I worked with a mate as a dj in a busy motel near Borehamwood
We never got finished till late & usually went to Scratchwood Service station for a coffee to wind down
Sometimes, if we were still fairly awake we'd burn up to Stevenage Bowl, which was open till very late back then
So, about 2.00am, standing at the bar, waiting to get my coffee, I was lifted off the ground by someone from behind. Feet back on the ground, I swung round expecting trouble as my mates fell about laughing
"Sorry, I thought you was my mate' Jimmy the Pill'" said the comical little muscular character with a massive grin on his face. You couldn't help but burst out laughing!
The bloke offered to buy me coffee but I said it was OK still laughing
The bloke did look familiar & it wasn't till a while afterwards that one of my mates said he was sure it was Keith Moon!
I think it probably was, though I'll never know for sure
It was about a year or so before Quadraphenia was released, with the main character of course being 'Jimmy the Pill' so it most likely was him. Also I later learned that he lived somewhere around Stevenage!

Re: Keith Moon
From wiki:

Moon's favourite stunt was to flush powerful explosives down toilets. According to Fletcher, Moon's toilet pyrotechnics began in 1965 when he purchased a case of 500 cherry bombs.[97] He moved from cherry bombs to M-80 fireworks to sticks of dynamite, which became his explosive of choice.[98] "All that porcelain flying through the air was quite unforgettable," Moon remembered. "I never realised dynamite was so powerful. I'd been used to penny bangers before."[97] He quickly developed a reputation for destroying bathrooms and blowing up toilets. The destruction mesmerised him, and enhanced his public image as rock's premier hell-raiser. Tony Fletcher wrote that "no toilet in a hotel or changing room was safe" until Moon had exhausted his supply of explosives.[97]

Pete Townshend walked into the bathroom of Moon's hotel room and noticed the toilet had disappeared, with only the S-bend remaining. The drummer explained that since a cherry bomb was about to explode, he had thrown it down the loo and showed Townshend the case of cherry bombs. "And of course from that moment on," the guitarist remembered, "we got thrown out of every hotel we ever stayed in."[99]

Entwistle recalled being close to Moon on tour: "I suppose we were two of a kind"... We shared a room on the road and got up to no good."[100] Consequently, both were often involved in blowing up toilets. In a 1981 Los Angeles Times interview he admitted, "A lot of times when Keith was blowing up toilets I was standing behind him with the matches."[101] In Alabama, Moon and Entwistle loaded a toilet with cherry bombs after being denied room service. According to Entwistle, "That toilet was just dust all over the walls by the time we checked out. The management brought our suitcases down to the gig and said: 'Don't come back ... '"[100]

A hotel manager called Moon in his room and asked him to lower the volume on his cassette recorder because it made "too much noise." In response the drummer asked him up to his room, excused himself to go to the bathroom, put a lit stick of dynamite in the toilet and shut the bathroom door. Upon returning, he asked the manager to stay for a moment, as he wanted to explain something. Following the explosion, Moon turned the recorder back on and said, "That, dear boy, was noise. This is the 'Oo."[102]


Hahahaha

Mrs oi found her childhood autograph book yesterday. Loads of great autographs including all 4 members of The Who. It was 1966, she was 12 and remembers sitting at a table with them in the BBC canteen. Roger Daltrey kept trying to get her to have a fag.

Cymbal, I think you mean.
