The Who's Railway Hotel



The Who's Railway Hotel

The first gig The Who ever played was in The Railway Hotel here.

Location: Railway Approach, Wealdstone, Middlesex

Description: The old Railway Hotel that used to stand on this site was a real old rock 'n roll pub/hotel.

It was here that an R&B club was run by Richard Barnes and where Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp first saw The Who starring Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. This is the site of The Who's first ever gig.

It was also here that Pete Townshend cracked his guitar neck on the low ceiling and so began The Whos notorious auto-destruction. You can see a photo of The Railway Tavern on the inside sleeve of Meaty, Beaty, Big & Bouncy.

Carlo Little, drummer with the Rolling Stones many gigs with his own band here. It was also here that he first met Ronnie Wood.

The derelict hotel was destroyed by arsonists on 28 Feb 2000.
