Pete Townshed throws F-Bomb at 7-year old Hamilton fan
The Who's Pete Townsend is pushing 70 and apparently getting cranky.
A video on the Toronto Sun website shows Townshend playing concert this week at Hamilton's Copps Coliseum.
Between sets, 7-year old Janey Costello and her dad, Eric, made their way closer to the stage from their seats in the 15th row
A family made space for the pair in their isle and Janey sat on her dad's shoulders, holding up a sign she painted for her rock hero that said:
Smash Your Guitar, Pete!
Apparently Townshend took exception, thinking Janey's dad was 'using' her to get close to the stage.
After telling the two not to 'wave the sign' at him, he told Eric that "I want to tell you two words, but I can't because you have a child on you."
After that, Townshend mouthed the words "F--- OFF" -- to loud cheers from the crowd.
Janey is heartbroken and her dad is insulted.
Eric Costello says he would consider taking his daughter to see The Who again, but only if Townshend washes his mouth out with soap.
