Rest in peace, Harry Alberts
Harry and Michelle
“Arch Who fan Harry Alberts passed away soon after The Who’s second show in Las Vegas. At the front of the stage, with his daughter (a pilot), they grinned and smiled through the show and I managed to wave goodbye as we took their applause.
Harry was always a welcome figure at Who shows, partly because he was a sweet guy, but also because he donated to so many Who-related charities. The cause of Harry’s death will be confirmed soon. He will be really missed by the Who family.
One gift Harry gave me is priceless : a Synclavier guitar to use with my studio system. He is survived by his daughter Lindsey, his son Alex and his partner Michelle. My sympathies go out to them all.” ~ Pete Townshend

“How fragile the thread of life is!
To say the least, the news of Harry’s death came as a shock , especially after seeing him happy, with his daughter Lindsey, in my dressing room after the show in Las Vegas on Saturday.
My thoughts and condolences are with his family and his partner Michelle at this time. A good friend who will be greatly missed.” ~ Roger Daltrey
