Pete Townshend Gets Historic House

Pete Townshend has given himself a 65th birthday present.  The Who guitarist recently bought an historic 17th century Dutch style house in Berkshire, England from the National Trust, which had owned the building since the 1950's.  Townshend's title to the house actually comes in the form of a 41 year lease. Whether Townshend intends to live in the stone mansion remains to be seen.  If he does, he will have to get used to having some company; one provision of the arrangement is that Townshend allow the public to have access to portions of the house two days a week between April and October.
