When The Who
made their first appearance on the show, they were to conclude their performance of "My Generation" by doing their usual instrument smashing as well as having some smoke powder ignite in Keith Moon
's bass drums as well. Earlier that day at rehearsals, the band was dissatisfied with how the effect went off so they asked that more of a charge be put in. Unknown to the band, Moon put even more of a charge in later. As the band concluded their performance, instead of a smoking effect, a huge explosion occurred. This caused Moon to suffer cuts on his arm and, more importantly, Pete Townshend
suffered damage to his hearing, which would affect him in later years. See more

Well he could quit.
