Description

It's been said of many bands that they spoke for a generation - and The Who merited that honor better than most. But there was more - much, much more - to these giants of British music than a fleeting success in capturing the spirit of a particular time and place. From young upstarts to stadium rock titans, The Who have shaped the course of music for nearly half a century.Now you can relive the extraordinary career of the group with this superb publication. It tells the story of the band members' origins in west London to their rapid rise to fi rst British and then international fame, spearheading the second wave of the British pop invasion of America. All the subsequent highs, the lows, the tears, and triumphs and, of course, the music of this legendary band are showcased, resulting in the ideal what, when, where, and why of The Who.
