The Who in Harrow The Who in Harrow

Monument: The Who in Harrow

Erection date: 12/12/2009


The Who
This plaque marks the site of the former Railway Hotel, where The Who made rock history by smashing a guitar during the group's shows in 1964.

Harrow Council 

Pete Townshend was the guitar-smasher.

We visited the site in May 2012 to find the plaque gone and replaced with a hand-scrawled rather sad "Who R.I.P.", so we are indebted to Housing for the photograph.

Site: The Who in Harrow (1 memorial)

HA1, Sandridge Close, Daltrey House

Two blocks of flats have been built on the site: Daltrey House and Moon House. Annoyingly, there is a board on one of the blocks listing the flats inside and it spells "Daltrey" without an "e".

The 2014 documentary film, Lambert and Stamp, has film of The Who performing here.
