I have always loved the music of The Who, and I think the man behind The Who's music, Pete Townshend, is a godsend!
He is a beautiful man who cares about his fans and writes heartfelt lyrics about childhood, teenagehood and adulthood.
I also love his solo work and...
I've loved The Who since I was a little kid. I remember sitting in the car with my Dad and belting out lyrics to the who when I was 6 years old. Ever since I was a baby my parents exposed me to amazing music. I fell in love with The Who especially, and was lucky enough to see...
The Magic Bus. Pete Townsend. Often associated with drugs. Guys, come on you dope heads, he just wants to visit his girl.
Every day I get in the queue (Too much, the Magic Bus)

ive loved thier music for many years , but wasnt a hardcore fan until i saw tommy a few years ago . i can tell you it is the greatest musical ever made . its a sin to go through life without seeing this film at least 20 times at full stereo blast . i also recently bought "the who...
Can ya? CAN YA?!?!
The opening to one of the greatest songs they did!
If you are reading the things I write around here, then yes... you are seeing more of the real me than many have who have actually known me.
And yes, I do love the Who!
Pete, John, Roger and Keith are the men that makes me want to get up and dance after hearing the first 10 seconds of their music. The who are timeless! One of my favorite bands to come out of the sixties. Ive been listening to their tunes since i was in diapers and ill probably...
