Biography

ZB3202_168901_0573The amazing musical journey of The Who, the band that revolutionized music, brought us the very essence and roots of punk and hard rock music, ultimately becoming one of the best selling acts of all time with 100 million units shipped and just one of the greatest rock forces in the history of mankind, began in the year of 1964, as vocalist Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townsend, drummer Keith Moon and bassist John Entwistle decided to form a band.

And the journey was stellar from the get go! Immediately in 1964, the group released their first single, a future all-time classic called “I Can’t Explain,” and began conquering the world through the power of rock music.

The band then released their full-length debut album called “My Generation” in 1965, and gave the world its very first taste of punk attitude, well over a decade before anyone knew what punk meant.

The band was raw and powerful, yet revolutionary. Whether we’re talking about such stage antics as crashing of guitars onstage or such revolutionary aspects as wall-ripping rock power chords and progressions, The Who in many ways have invented all that. They are known for their hits, sure, but the musical elements that this band introduced are often neglected, simply because they became the very fabric of rock ‘n’ roll.

But as early as their second album 1966’s “A Quick One,” the band showed desire to follow a more of a progressive path, and in 1969, that is exactly what they did by introducing the world to its very first rock opera. Titled “Tommy,” the album marks another landmark achievement in the history of music and further proves the musical prowess of these four individuals.

With 1971’s “Who’s Next,” the band achieved their very first No. 1 US album, mostly thanks to such staple rock hits as “Baba O’Riley,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again, ” and “Behind Blue Eyes.”

In 1973, the band released another super-ambitious effort, a double-album rock opera known as “Quadrophenia,” shaking up the world with an intriguing concept and killer hits like “The Real Me” and “5:15.”

The band followed their trail of success with 1975’s “The Who By Numbers” and 1978’s “Who Are You,” only for a tragedy to occur on September 7, 1978. The band’s wildest member, drummer Keith Moon, died of a drug overdose, leaving the band permanently affected.

The band tried to march forward, but only with mild success of the following two albums, ultimately announcing hiatus in 1988.

What followed was a string of on-off activity, mostly focusing on touring. Their final album to date, “Endless Wire,” was released in 2006, but the band mostly remains remembered for their golden era, much like they should be.

Another tragedy occurred in 2002, as bassist John Entwistle died due to a cocaine-induced heart attack.

However, the band still packs an amazing punch and to this date, the surviving Who lads still tour the world and deliver an amazing performance. Pete Townsend has severe hearing issues, but he still delivers some mean power chords, and Roger Daltrey’s singing is just pure gold. Are they the greatest band of all time? Well, they just might be.
