The Who Bio
With their unusual guitar-bashing tradition and enduring, iconic sound, The Who originally launched onto the music scene with "I Can't Explain," a demo which garnered them a record deal. The single was released in 1965, but it was a performance on Ready, Steady, Go – complete with Pete Townshend’s guitar-destroying antics at the end – that brought the single to number eight in the UK.
Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Townshend continued to enjoy hits in the UK for the next few years. "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" and “My Generation” followed into the Top Ten, but The Who had yet to fully enter the music scene in the United States. A Quick One was released in 1967, and The Who finally began to get airplay in the United Stated with “Happy Jack.” The Who Sell Out came next, and the Magic Bus after that in 1968.
In the meantime, Townshend was working on a ninety-minute opus, a potential masterpiece to launch The Who to superstardom.
Tommy, the rock opera and story of a blind, deaf, and dumb boy who turned out to be a pinball wizard and then a messiah-like figure, would hit number four in the United States and its first single “Pinball Wizard” would find a home at number nineteen.
Tommy would be performed from start to finish by The Who only a handful of time, but they would become historical performances. Venues included New York City’s Metropolitan Opera house (1970) and London’s Coliseum (1969.) Performances launched around the world, and in 1972 Townshend supervised a re-recording of The Who’s Tommy, with the London Symphony Orchestra and a variety of top name performers.
The 1975 film version, starring Tina Turner, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Ann-Margaret, Jack Nicholson, Roger Daltrey in the lead role, went on to accolades and award nominations.
Tommy would go on to be the crowning achievement for The Who, although the band continued to record and release well beyond Tommy’s peak. Another double-album rock opera, Quadrophenia, followed in 1973. It was also adapted for film, with Sting (of The Police) taking on the lead role. Odds and Sods followed in 1974, The Who by Numbers in 1975.
Eventually, The Who members went on to independent projects. The death of Keith Moon somewhat solidified the end of the band, although they continued on in a variety of forms for another few years. Kenney Jones replaced Moon, and The Who brought in John Bundrick on keyboards.
The Who released His Empty Glass in 1980, and the album featured "Let My Love Open the Door" and "Rough Boys.” Face Dances (1981) All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes (1982), and It's Hard (1982) followed, and The Who disbanded in the same year.
The Broadway production of The Who’s Tommy won five Tony Awards in 1993, and both Daltrey and Townshend continued with independent projects throughout the 1990’s and into the new millennium.
The reunited a number of times for performances, including a 9/11 benefit for New York City, and in 2004, Townshend and Daltrey record two new songs, "Old Red Wine" and "Real Good Looking Boy.”
In 2005, The Who appeared in London for Live 8, and in 2006, The Who released Endless Wire, their first new album in 24 years. Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who (DVD) was released in 2007, and tours followed in 2008 and 2009.
The Who continue to perform, both as a group and independently.
