How Pete Townsend played Won't Get Fooled Again organ part

Here's an interesting blog post from Gig Performer that details how Pete Townsend actually played the organ part of Won't Get Fooled Again. The author uses the Blue3 Hammond VSTi into Arturia's ARP 2600 (Townsend used a Lowrey Berkshire Deluxe TBO-1 into an EMS VCS-3 and later an ARP 2500).

    I'm pretty sure Townshend used Mainstage as his VST host, not Gig Performer. He was a well-known proponent of Apple. Or was it that he ate apples?
     
    J/K. Great video. Now, if somebody could tell me how to duplicate the piano effect that Blue Man Group gets on their cover of Baba O'Reilly. Preferably, a technique that doesn't require turning my grand piano on its side and bashing it with a huge mallet.


    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

    Gee, why wouldn't you want to do that?
