Album: Hollywood Dream
. . .
So the story goes that John “Speedy” Keen was both the flatmate of and driver for Pete Townshend, while playing drums and singing with quite a few bands as well. Which of course, makes sense: if you lived in London in the mid-1960s, it was mandated by law that you had to be in a band.
That said, Townshend liked Keen’s songwriting so much, he commissioned Future Certain Song “Armenia City in the Sky,” which ended up being the opening salvo of the immortal The Who Sell Out, about which much much much more when we get there.
