Understandable mistake

From the Guardian via Private Eye:
In our review of The Who at Leeds University, page 36, June 19, we attributed to Pete Townshend the exclamation, “You are wank!”. We are assured that what he actually told the audience was “We are all back”. Apologies.

A reasonable mistake-a to make-a, with Townshend.

That misunderstanding in full
'Hours after a blue plaque is unveiled to mark the site of the original Live at Leeds gig in 1970, Pete Townshend steps up to the mic to make his own carefully considered historical announcement.

"You are wank!" he declares, to shrieks of laughter.'
