Reminds me of how great the band name is.

And the band is certainly great. Townshed is one of the greatest songwriters of all time, and yeah, he can definitely play guitar.

Well, to put it quite simply. The Who rock. I grew up listening to them. But everyone goes through some sort of a crap music phase...me included. So for awhile there, I forgot all about them. And I rediscovered them about 4 years ago. It amazed me that I could recall words from songs I didn't know...or I thought I didn't know them.

At the moment I'm absolutely Who-fanatic. There's no reason to stop that.
I think they where the definition of a great band. Awesome studio material (Pete is a great songwriter) and even more awesome live-material (as someone said: they rock!).

You could call Pete a better guitar player because he plays lead and rythym but Richards was a better riffmaker imo.

I love The Who.

Townsend is definetly an underrated lyricist, and as a whole I think the band is overshadowed by other great bands.

The guys of the band are total goons, especially Keith Moon. Everything he does is hilarious.

The Who, along with the Beatles are probably in the top two greatest bands of all time, on my list. Pete is a great guitarist and a phenominal lyric writer.

Keith Moon and John Entwistle are both some of the best in their instruments ever. Pete Townshend is an amazing song writer, and while he's not an amazing guitarist it fits well. I also love Roger Daltrey's voice.

A years worth of searching and I have yet to see TKAA in any stores near where I live. The who are def. the best live band ever and one of the greatest bands ever.

I remember the only who thread, me and me_and_my_esp ruled that thread, we took up basically half of it and the last 20 pages is basically just me and esp.

I can't wait for the who to tour the u.s. i'm gonna try to get tickets if they come even remotely close to me. I can't wait for their new cd either, I WANT IT NOW!!!!

the only thing i got against this movie is there are parts where its quite obvious that Pete is visually playing some other song while you hear another, like in Heaven and Hell you see him playing down at the nut when he's obviously up the neck "a-ways."

you can definately see him playing "Im Free" like during some solo, i think maybe Summertime Blues or something. Watch Im Free first, where he's like hopping and shuffling around in a circle, then watch the rest, you'll spot it like 3 times.

So you really like them... but... you don't... like them?

Or do you mean they made great music but can't anymore and can't replicate it, either, without the missing members of the band?

The two live dvd's are pretty cool and you also get some bonus hits in there which is worth it too. Tommy is awesome except when Billy Idol comes on the stage to be cousin kevin...you could have told him to stay home. Phil Collins is great as uncle ernie. I would say its worth having.

The movie is alright, there are parts added to 'clarify' the fuzzy parts but it's pretty cool to visualize it all. It is a musical and don't expect more than that. But you are correct in saying i would much rather listen to the album and watch the movie. plus the movie is over two hours long.

I do agree that the album is much better though. Can't wait for the new CD and Im definitely getting tickets when they come around. My dad is a gigantic who fanatic, so I grew up listening to them constantly... . Also, The Kids Are Alright is an awesome video, and you should definitely see it if youre into them.

I dont think so; it would be widely known if that happened and I can tell you, as a fellow Windmiller of Townshend's (yeah thats right i windmill everyday :D) who plays a Strat, it appears almost impossible to do that, given the looseness of a whammy and the fact that you normally hit the strings nearer the bridge when you windmill, but i guess that depends also on how low your guitar is.
***Do not attempt windmilling without practice first***


edit- apparently it is possible : http://www.townshendbio.com/Chap%2013.htm
not sure if its really true though; it seems really hard to impale yourself on a whammy, even at "full speed" but you can scrape up your hand real good on the strings and whack the side of it into the bottom of the guitar.

Nope, that pic your talking about is from the early 80s, this apparently happened in 89, and that blood is almost all fake; he was bleedin a bit because he came to that photo shoot directly after a show and had a bit of blood but the photographer put some movie blood on to make it look cooler; and in the story he says his hand was impaled through his palm, which is hard to believe but hey, its pete.

Yes we know all of that. No need to show off. My point was that perhaps the story about him impaling his palm on the whammy-bar developed from the publication of that picture, which highlighted the fact that windmilling does a lot of damage to your hand.

And the fact that it was through his palm doesn't make a difference, in any case, as it would still be bleeding all over the place.

No hard feelings, but was there any point to that post other than to try to show me up? :rolleyes:

like a week. Its not hard but if you're not accurate you hit your hand on the strings, or you miss the strings and then when you try to get closer you get too close and smack your hand on the bottom of the guitar near the input. :( it kinda hurts alot.
However, I dont do that a lot cause like i said Im a pro :rolleyes: but it's really fun to do along with jumping around liek Pete. The only downside to goin that fast is all the blood rushes to your fingers and it kinda numbs them. Now i only need to smash my guitar and the metamorphosis will be complete....

*sniff*I'm keepign this one guys.
*sniff* i just saw jesus eyes!
*sniff*This marker has shown me jesus eyes!
And even tho it smelled like a bag of asses and you just saw jesus eyes, there was always that kid that would follow you around: 'lemme smell it i didnt-ugghhh!!! lemmee just ughhh!!!'
And then he aggravated you to the point where you said 'fine here' adn when he leaned in you went 'AAAARHHHH!!'
'Nice face *sniff*

I learnt so much to add to my rhythm playing. Townshend is amazing..

crazynickman
06-22-2006, 03:56 PM
yes, its so powerful live, a bit soft in the studio version but nothing beats the Rock n Roll Circus version from TKAA. I love it. If it were shorter it'd be a radio staple.

bluesbreaker59
06-22-2006, 03:58 PM
another great version is off the rushmore soundtrack...i just can't seem to find it anywhere else. i accidentaly bought the mono version on iTunes and it pretty much sucks!

ok? lol

well, for my taste, Quadrophenia >>>>>> TOMMY

With Quad, the message is clear, to-the-point, and applies to.. pretty much all eras. just change the groups and music i guess. It deals with more every-day situations than Tommy, and, for me, I like lyrics and music that I can say "Hey, I know whatcha mean!" The studio music IMO, is much better becuase my taste is heavier and requires lots of different themes. Tommy has sorta out there concepts that I cant just say "Hey, I get that" and the studio music - however genius it might be - is a little.. dare i say, weak? Quad kicks you in the ass for studio.

As far as live, Tommy takes it. Quad, with all the affects and horns and synths and diff noises, everything has to be PERFECT in order to pull it off just right. The WHO stopped performing it because of the tape failures, and the over all trickyness of pulling it off. Live, Tommy's music is much heavier and more in your face, so it appeals more to me.

so thats my opinion of TOMMY and Quadrophenia.

in the end, though, Quad trumps. just.. trumps.

DieN

My favourite Who studio albums are

Sell Out
Tommy
Who's Next
Quadrophenia
Who By Numbers (so underrated)

I can't really rank them...but if I tried it would look like this (at the moment!):

1.Tommy
2.Who's Next
3.The Who By Numbers
4.The Who Sell Out
5.Quadrophenia

They all deserve the "first place" and a special place in any music fan's collection.

in the end, though, Quad trumps. just.. trumps.

I like Tommy better than Quad becuase even tho the message is less accessible than Quads, the idea of reaching nirvan thru the abandonment of wordly perceptions- whoa. But Tommy suffers a bit, because Pete wasnt yet comfortable with the Opera concept, so some ssogns are unessecary plot-wise but ahve good music while others serve the story but are....not so great. case in point- 1921 is very important to the story but its clumsily written, and Sparks and Underture have no words at all but are still unbelieveably awesome that i dotn even care. :D
and yes, Tommy pwns Quad live. IMO See Me Feel Me at Woodstock is the greatest song ever performed live. By the time of Isle of Wight it became this big singalong showtune and lost that solitary purity it had at Woodstock. Not that band-audience interaction is bad- for the Who its paramount- but its just one of those songs where you shut up and gawk at the stage for five minutes.

those songs don't need lyrics, the instrumental parts of the album make it better and more easy to get carried away by it.
the glorious moment in overture when the organ falls in is really great imo, but it is true that the message of tommy is less clear if you have heard it just a few times.

and the song Quadrophenia.

which i think is brilliant.

i like how the song evolves in itself... the Synth is powerful and the effects are perfect. the theme (riff and music wise) changes throughout the album, but the one in Quad (the song), i think is the most powerful.

I've heard that that is the ideal combo, a Hammond run through a Leslie, but it don't sound like that to me...The bridge on "Badge" by Cream is played on a Leslie amp and thats what I think of, but i could be wrong.

06-25-2006, 04:39 PM
i'm not sure either, but my dad is always enthousiastic about his hammond organ and that part always makes me think of that kind of organ vibrato.

if you want to know what it sounds like you should listen to some santana songs, they always use a hammond with that kind of vibrato.

meh, I dont think he's overrated. great, yes. overrated, i dont think so. And it was the whole band - besides John Entwistle - who made the shows (as far as power and energy goes). Pete and Roger were up front and standing the whole time, so they had more stage presence than Keith behind a drum kit.sure, he blew up the drums, but on the other hand, Pete destroyed his guitar. Lets not forget why Keith started blowing his kit. He did it cause of Pete. His antcs were great, but didnt overshadow the rest of the on-stage antics to the point of making a show.

Pretty stupid, but pretty hardcore :rolleyes: I heard he was spiked though. Did you see the video of when he passed out from that? Some 17 year old kid from Detriot i think took his place for the rest of the set! :haha The Who gave new meaning to the term band-audience interaction.

And my thoughts on Keith: i dont think he was overrated because everyone knew he couldn't play "real" but he was better than most drummers who ever leanred the "real" way. I like how he rode the crash instead of using a hi-hat like everyone else (except on a few tracks like "Who Are You"); it gave a nice "white noise" touch, a little disuption in the back. Plus his antics like throwing the sticks and catching them

One of my favorite aspects of the Who live was their banter and joking around, like on "Live at the Isle of Wight" -"you travel halfway around the world and come back to a load of foreigners...theyre always causing trouble" :haha

Any of you guys have The Kids Are Alright CD?

On the first song, My Generation, they have an interview with the band, and it's pretty funny.

The best thing about it is that they're on a television show doing the set, and at the end of the song they blow all of their equipment up.

From what I read in the pamphlet of the CD, the explosion caused the station to be knocked out for about ten seconds, and Pete's hair got scorched.

The band as a whole are total goons. :haha

70-75 definitely, those were the years they really broke their shell and started playing rock n roll.

bluesbreaker59
06-30-2006, 10:03 PM
^anywhere from 64-75 probably. their early stuff was great, anyway, anyhow, anywhere, i can't explain, as well as some of the later stuff until faces dances and its hard. emminence front and you better you bet was the best thing that came out of those two combined...unfortunatley.

thanks me_and_my_esp lol

schizoid_man, i would get live at leeds or the who sings my generation. if you feel brave, get the who sell out. i would wait for quadrophenia, just because it's not my personal favorite. but you can choose which one you want.

another question i had was why did the who play a different version of eyesite to the blind (the hawker) after the early shows? they played the one from the movie, which isn't bad, but the original from tommy is better. anybody know??

just to make you all jealous: I SAW THE WHO LIVE YESTERDAY!!!!!!

they were amazing, best show i've ever seen. and the band sounds really good.
here are most of the songs they played to give you an idea of the show (they're not all in correct order):

i can't explain, the seeker, anyway anyhow anywhere, the kids are alright, bargain, my generation, baba 'o riley, behind blue eyes, who are you, won't get fooled again, love reign o'er me, and a qaudrophenia song i can't put a title on...
as encores they played substitute and then pinball wizard, from there they went into amazing journey and sparks (with a small part of the overture blended in it) and finally see me, feel me/ listening to you

pete had some equipment problems during baba 'o riley, so he wasn't able to play the whole song with the band, after the song he apologized and said: "my equipment, as well as my body is getting a bit creeky" and played a big solo to make up for it.

i am a very happy man now...

wow.... dude....

it's impossible to put into words the jealousy I have for you right now.

did they have a violin at the end of baba o'reilly or did roger just play a harmonica (my friend said he saw a vid of them doin that), or was this part of the equipment problem?

will_s
07-01-2006, 09:20 AM
roger played the harmonica, they played the entire song but pete's guitar was busted or something so he didn't play along. he was really pissed about it :D but those things happen

^^i agree, just being there would be great. but when lynyrd skynyrd came a couple of years ago and 80 thousand people came to the free show, being in the back sucked because van zant and rossington where about one inch and you couldn't really hear anything anyway.

you'll wish you've had never asked, but i was on the third row in the crowd on pete's side of the stage :D
it was pretty easy getting to the front since they played a 4-day rock festival and most of the young kids who don't know them left the front area for the real fans.

i also have a question for the guitar playing who fans:
does anyone have a clue about the type of pickups pete uses in those strats, or what pedal he uses? i ask because normally i'm not a stratocaster fan but he could really make them sound great, more like a gibson.

·Bargain
·Behind Blue Eyes
·Good looking Boy
·I'm one (Pete Solo)

·Baba O'Riley
·Love reign o'er me
·Kids are allright
