  1. One of my favourite stories in this genre… The Who.

    In their early years, they were called The Detours. On a particular occasion, they were playing the club circuit and were about to go on stage. The club manager wanted to know what to announce them as. “We’re The Detours,” said Roger Daltrey. “The Who?”, asked the club manager.

    Hesitation.

    Evaluation.

    Inspiration!

    “Yeah, that’s right,” Roger replied, “The Who.”
