FAN FINDS DALTREY'S PASSPORT IN A SHOP
IT WAS recently confirmed that The Who’s world tour will go ahead in October after Pete Townshend finally committed to the extravaganza.
Now it turns out that another possible hitch has been avoided, thanks to an eagle-eyed radio listener.
Lisa Gillespie got more than she bargained for when she popped in to bargain store Budgens for some groceries and picked up superstar Roger Daltrey’s passport instead.
The 40-year-old was visiting the branch of the supermarket in Maidstone, Kent, when she spotted the document on the floor.
Wondering how she could get it back to The Who frontman, she contacted Virgin Radio’s Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show and appealed for help.
Lisa says: “If I could get a message to him, I would say that I didn’t mean to cause such a stir. I just wanted to get the passport back to him so he could go on tour in America.
“I contacted Virgin Radio because I know Christian is friends with Roger from some charity work they did together and he’s not the easiest person to contact. I couldn’t just call 192 and ask for Roger Daltrey!”
Producers of the show thought it might be a hoax but when the passport arrived there they checked the numbers with the rock star’s office and found it was the genuine article, bearing the name Roger Harry Daltrey, the star’s picture and stamps from all over the world.
Before delivering the passport back to a much-relieved Roger, 64, Christian challenged listeners to guess where it was discovered, with answers including a Take That concert, Legoland and the toilets at Luton Airport.
tbh, i'd still tap that ass.
