Pete Townshend's windmill guitar chords. Roger Daltrey's triumphant cries. John Entwistle's firm bass lines. Keith Moon's inhuman drumming. The Who stands alone in rock music.
Arguably the most explosive live act ever to appear on stage, propelled by one of the most staggeringly brilliant rhythm sections in all popular music, layered with deafening riffs and thunderous vocal fury, The Who transcended its original billing as "Maximum R&B" to become amongst the most musically inventive and structurally innovative bands in history.
Together, the four divergent personalities of The Who produced a hurricane. Each of them was a pioneer. Wildman Moon beat his kit with a chaotic elegance; stoic bassist Entwistle held down the center with the melodic virtuosity of a solo guitarist; raging intellectual Townshend punctuated the epic universality of his songs with the slamming of his fingers across his guitar strings; and Daltrey roared above it all with an impossibly virile macho swagger.
The group exploded conventional rhythm and blues structures, challenged pop music conventions, and redefined what was possible onstage, in the recording studio, and on vinyl. Never before or since has spiritual and intellectual brilliance sounded so gloriously furious.
Alone among the great bands, The Who has found itself at the center of every major rock event from Monterey, Woodstock, and the Isle of Wight to the Concert for Kampuchea, Live Aid, and the Concert for NYC.
In any era, The Who is a true touchstone for rock and roll greatness. The ensemble has sold over 100 million albums and won every award including Grammys, Brit Awards and Lifetime Achievement, and has been inducted into both the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and UK Music Hall of Fame.
