  • Right from the start, The Who smashed and grabbed their way into the charts and into our hearts. They spilled out of teatime TV sets with thunderous attitude- laden pop-bombs, 'I Can't Explain' and 'My Generation', they scared your gran but made you want to be in a band, their band. Hard man Roger Daltrey holds his mic in a fist, Pete Townshend lashes at his guitar with the ferocity of a windmill, cool as cucumber John Entwistle just stands there, all the while Keith Moon attacks his drum kit hell bent on destruction.

    The shocking, untamed energy of those early performances remains, only the tunes change: from "maximum" r'n'b to sixties pop, through experimental synth- rock, conceptual song cycles and back to r'n'b again. The legacy of The Who is one of power chord hits and groundbreaking rock operas Tommy and Quadrophenia but also, one of restlessly creative spirits, unafraid to experiment, incapable of being still, always entertaining. Never underestimate a Who album, they'll take you by surprise.

  • Everything that I had done creatively related to two or three incidents that happened to me when I was a child that I'd forgotten. Everything, absolutely everything.
    Pete Townshend
