Will the Real Cliff Townshend Please Stand Up?
A fascinating story from the 1950s
on my father's blog concerning his landlord, who claimed to be the saxophonist Cliff Townshend, but in fact wasn't.
The story is made yet more intriguing by virtue of the fact the real Cliff Townshend was Who guitarist's Pete Townshend's father, though at the time he would he would only have been in short trousers.
