Daltrey was in town to talk about the charity for the show taping
and graciously made time to meet with Rodriguez and Basch.
The Who generously provided new music equipment to LIC Bar
after much of it was destroyed in Hurricane Sandy. Concerned citizen
and music fan Robert Basch reached out to the band when heard what
had happened to his favorite music venue.
To return the favor LIC Bar threw a fundraiser concert for Teen Cancer America back in February raising over $7,000.
“Roger was super friendly and showed great warmth and concern.” said Rodriguez. “We invited him to visit LIC Bar anytime–hopefully he will someday soon.”
