Who- Long Live Rock- Toronto 12-82

Clearly The Who never got the memo that “rock is dead”, not in 1972 when Pete Townshend first wrote and sang it, not ten years later when they performed this terrific version in Toronto, and according to all accounts including their drummer Zak Starkey‘s dad, not this past Thursday when they sold out the Staples […]

The Who-Tommy pt 2- Pete Townshend

The Who-Tommy pt 1- Pete Townshend

Like peeling back layer after layer of an onion, the many stages of The Who‘s Tommy  conception, gestation, and birth as the first successful rock opera are further revealed, it seems, every time Tommy composer Pete Townshend cleans out a storage closet. Additional demos and even a complete 1969 London Wembley arena performance of the […]

Who-Amazing Journey-July 1969 London Wembley Arena

Here is “Amazing Journey” from the new release coming […]
