The Who Find Last Minute Drummer
The Who was in a sticky situation at last Tuesday's show when they suddenly needed a drummer to fill in at a concert in San Diego. Frontman Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend decided to call on an old buddy to do the job: Scott Devours. Devours had played with the guys before, sitting behind the kit during Daltrey's solo, "Tommy," a few years ago.
After the show, the Who posted a note on their official website giving Devours big props: "Scott was magnificent. He played the whole of Quadrophenia note perfectly with only a two-hour run through to the delight of everyone — onstage and off. Scott performed the 'greatest hits' encore with no rehearsal at all."
"Quadrophenia's not an easy piece," Roger Daltrey added on the site. "To do what Scotty did took real guts."
