Roots of Quadrophenia

'Irish Jack' is one of the mods from the Goldhawk Social Club in West London, where The Who first built up their mod following. His name has been associated with the band ever since and he has, over the years, shared stories of his life and times with audiences all over the world. Jack is very kindly sharing part of his story here (hopefully there will be more to come...). You can also find many more stories from the great man on his site: Irish Jack
