The Who's lead singer Roger Daltrey has signed and inscribed this this postcard from the famed Stork Club in New York City in blue pen, "To Fran, Love Roger Daltrey". This signed postcard was obtained by a dinner guest on a magical night late in 1979 when she had the incredible luck of having dinner at the Stork Club with The Who, who were staying at the Hotel Navarro in New York City, their home base when they were on tour. They would stay at the hotel, which was next door to the Stork Club, (you could get to the Stork Club through a passageway in the hotel), then fly out to their nearby concerts from there. This evening bears historical significance since it was just before the Who's infamous concert in Cincinnati where the tragic stampede took place. The companion of the person who received the signature spent time with the band before and after the stampede and vividly remembers their anguish at what happened. Roger signed this postcard at the table that night and it has been in the possession of the person he signed it for up to the time of this auction. Measures 5.5 x 3.5. Very good condition. Comes with a letter of provenance from the individual who was there that magical night (they were also joined by Bruce Springsteen who came by their table, a beer in each pocket, and sat down with them) and obtained the signed postcard directly from Daltrey as well as a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Letter of Authenticity.
