    Quadrophenia

    I begged my mom for tickets to see Quadrophenia & More. We made a deal. If I got my grades to all A's and B's (I'm a Junior in high school), she'd take me. So I worked my butt off and I made it! It was on November 30th, 2012 and it's still one of my favorite memories :)

    Tommy

    My favorite British band of all time. Their music is still going strong even without two of their founding members. Not enough words can describe how great of a band The Who are.

    What The Eye Doesn’t See

    If I ever forget how good the Who are, I listen to Naked Eye. Pete’s guitar (especially combined with Entwistle’s bass and Moons drums) seems to describe the surfaces and layers of what’s underlying everything and his lyrics place words on them.  The...

    I Love The Who!

    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...

    This Song Is Over

    An amazing band.  Who's Next is one of my all time favorite albums.  The music and writing is superb. Of course they have other great albums as well.  I prefer the Keith Moon years.

    Since I Can Remember

    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...

    Sell Out

    I think The Who Sell Out has become my favorite album. The mix of musicianship, good writing, and humor comes together completely for me.

    See Me Feel Me Love Me

    One of the earliest rock operas I recall is Pinball Wizard. Ever since I was a young boy, I've played the silver ball. From Soho down to Brighton I must have played them all. But I ain't seen nothing like him In any amusement hall... That deaf dumb and blind kid Sure...
