I love the Who, I'm a Who collector, and whoever doesn't agree they don't rank higher than the Rolling Stones, come talk to me
#2
i rank the rolling stones higher as a band but i rank pete townshend way higher then keith richards as a guitarist.
#5
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.
#10
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.

I <3 the who

YES, A WHO THREAD!!!!!!!!!!
I love the Who. The were destroying stages and writing about subject amterial unparalled today when the Beatles still wore suits and smiled while playing (ugh). IMO the Who are the BEST. I am a HUGE fanatic and was about to make a who thread before i saw this one. Last year, the official thread was closed and i ran to hide in the pit, and now i can return to the classic rock forum!!!
fav songs-
baba and magic bus
plus too many to list

everyone here should get Live At Leeds, the Kids Are Alright movie (hilarious), tommy, and Quadrophenia if they dont already have them.
and the Who are touring Europe this year and will hit america by soemtime next year, plus theyre releasing a new cd this september


and i windmill when i play

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!!!!

Ya, I remember you being there somewhat, but you didn't have too many posts in there.

There is no FYE by me that I know of, I've seen Quad and Tommy and Royal Albert Hall in one place, but no one has TKAA

I got Isle Of Wight there, they had a lot of music stuff.
by the way, Isle of Wight is another DVD to get. Altough i dont really like the butchered version of Tommy (cut in half almost) and the stupid ass roadies who changed "Keef' " drums midway thru My Generation.

My dad has the vinyl of the original live at leeds, the deluxe version is so much better, but it costs alot more than the original, oh well can't put a price on perfection.

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.
