June, 1965 -The Giddy Statues first American tour: The Giddy Statues tour the USA with THE WHO. During a performance by The Who, Reggie accidentally gets hit over the head by PETE TOWNSHEND’S guitar. The Giddy Statues continue the US tour even though Reggie can only say the word, “Mayonnaise” for the next three weeks.
(The “never-say-die” Giddies soldiered on to finish the US tour as Reggie made up songs that enabled him to sing the only word he was able to speak at the time, “MAYOYNNAISE”. [You can hear one example on this MP3]. Reggie held no hard feelings towards Pete Townshend; they’re still very good mates)
