The Who cheers MER, Mel Brooks inspired
The Who cheers MER, Mel Brooks inspired Opportunity and the MER team got some rockin’ support from The Who (right) and inspired the one and only Mel Brooks (left) in October. Brooks (left) is a filmmaker, actor, comedian, and composer extraordinaire whose movie Spaceballs motivated the MER ops engineers. The Who – Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Pete Townshend pictured here from a concert in 1975 in Chicago – started back 1964 in London and performed at Woodstock in 1969. Though Moon passed away in 1978, not long after the MER Update author celebrated Who Are You at a listening party with the band on the set of Battlestar Galactica at Universal Studios, and Entwistle passed away in 2002, Daltrey and Townshend continue to keep The Who on the road.
