I don’t know why this story came up in my brain, but I worked for a summer as a roadie at Syracuse University – a fun summer where we’d set up and breakdown for events at the Carrier Dome and other places around campus. One of my co-workers passed on this nugget from when The Who played there in the mid-80’s.
This guy was security at the front of the stage… they usually were between barricades and the crowd, so they were in the buffer between the band and the stage. He was with another security guard, and literally 5 feet from Roger Daltrey while he’s singing a number.. they look up, and notice his fly is open. The guys are trying to signal him that he needs to fix things… he notices their hand waving, and pointing to their zippers. Roger waves at them and says “No…No Thanks“.
Now, this is in the middle of him singing a song.
The security guards are trying to keep him from embarrassment, so they wave and point more frantically at their crotches, trying to let him know that his pants are undone in front of 30,000+ in the audience. Again, Roger says “Really.. thanks.. but no.” and keeps singing. It finally dawns on the security guards that Roger wasn’t thinking about his fly.
He was graciously declining a blowjob from them.
