Sally Simpson is a girl who goes to see Tommy at a spiritual gathering of his followers at Tommy’s holiday camp. When Tommy appears on stage – seen here with the members of The Who – poor Sally is crushed in the crowd and tries to get on stage to touch Tommy but is thrown back into the crowd resulting in a gash to her face. This incident was inspired by a real life occurrence when Pete Townshend saw a girl climb on stage at a Doors concert to try and touch Jim Morrison and in doing so was injured by a security guard.
