About The Who

From the youthful arrogance of their early-'60s recordings to the ambitious rock operas and introspective FM rock staples of their mid-'70s albums, the Who raged like a rock & roll inferno. Pete Townshend's guitar fireworks and Keith Moon's larger-than-life drumming combined with the intricate basslines of John Entwistle and vocal roar of Roger Daltrey to create one of rock's mightiest noises. Townshend often pushed the group into new sonic territory, incorporating pop art and conceptual pieces. He was one of the finest British songwriters; "The Kids Are Alright" and "My Generation" became teenage anthems, while his rock opera Tommy earned respect from mainstream critics. The band reconvened numerous times following the death of the hard-living Moon in 1978, and even continued to tour and record well after the death of Entwistle in 2002.
