Chris Murphy et al. in Fillmore East, Second Avenue, East 6th Street, Manhattan - the 1970's
"You know who else I like?" he [Miles Davis] said. "Peter Townshend. He knows how not to play. Somebody else would use three chords, but he picks the one, the right one, and uses it. He knows how not to play."
I told him about seeing The Who perform at Fillmore East, and said how much I liked their earlier work, especially "I Can See For Miles."
"They did a song about me?" Miles seemed quite surprised.
"No, no," I said. "It's just a song title." We both laughed.
