The Who Biography Defining a Generation
Originally known as The Detours, the band's classic line-up of singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend, bassist
John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon came together under their current moniker in 1964. Encouraged to follow the Beatles
and Rolling Stones' lead and write their own material, within a few years they were releasing a track that would go on to
define an era, 'My Generation'. Experiencing huge success with its parent album, by the 1970s they were one of Britain's biggest
rock groups, famed for a frenetic approach to live performances embodied by Moon's uniquely aggressive drumming style.
Expanding their sound on concept LPs such as Tommy, for many,Quadrophenia - a rock opera exploring mental
illness - remains their high water mark. Although Moon and Entwistle are no longer with the group, having passed away in 1978
and 2002 respectively, Daltrey and Townshend are still familiar faces on the live circuit, with Ringo Starr's drummer son
Zak Starkey and Pete's younger brother Simon among the musicians filling in at their concerts.
