Who Historic Spot Marked in UK

Pete Townshend observed something during a pub concert in 1964 that ended up costing the Who guitarist several instruments in the years that followed.  Playing the Railway Hotel Pub in Harrow, England in September of '64, Townshend broke the neck on his guitar when it hit the ceiling during a leap.  The crowd loved it.  Noting the reaction, Pete proceeded to smash the the instrument to pieces, driving the crowd wild.  A plaque was recently installed near the spot in Sandridge Close where Townshend's guitar met its historic and glorious end.  Unfortunately, the building that housed the pub was torn down long ago and replaced with apartments.
