Description


Most know that the legendary English rock band the Who performed concerts at ear-splitting volume, smashed their instruments, and became one of the world's most influential groups. The period from 1964 to 1976 saw the creation of such classics as "My Generation," "Pinball Wizard," and "Won't Get Fooled Again," as well as the Tommy, Who's Next, and Quadrophenia albums.
  • Exclusive, never-before-published anecdotes on the Who from fans, friends, and insiders
  • Hundreds of never-before-published photos of the Who in concert from 1964 to 1976
  • Includes the only existing photos of bassist John Entwistle smashing his bass on stage

Readers will be thrown into the untold stories of fans affected by their music and live performances and the angst and insecurities that drove bandleader Pete Townshend to new heights during this time. Who saw Pete Townshend handing his guitar from the stage to a grateful fan, and what happened next? Who has seen photos of bassist John Entwistle being anything but the "Quiet One"? What happened backstage at Woodstock and the Monterey Pop Festival?

It's a labor of love from a fan for fans that gives voice to a collective consciousness that might otherwise fall silent over time.
