It looks so easy

This is probably my all-time favorite Pete Townshend solo performance.  He recorded this version of "Drowned" at the Secret Policeman's Ball benefit for Amnesty International.  In many ways, this performance laid the foundation for the whole "Unplugged" phenomenon that would follow.  One man with one big Gibson acoustic guitar on one night when everything clicked.  Hope you like it.
