 The Who - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Who are an English rock band who first came to prominence in the 1960s, and grew in stature to become one of the greatest rock 'n' roll bands of all time [1][2] [3] [4].
Also in 1979, The Who released a documentary film called The Kids Are Alright and a film version of Quadrophenia, the latter becoming a huge box office hit in the UK and the former becoming something of a holy grail for Who fans and a summation of the band's Keith Moon era.
The Who were featured on Top Gear on July 30th, 2006, wherein the presenters were challenged to be roadies for "The greatest rock band in the world" (in the words of Jeremy Clarkson).

 The Who
The Who's ringing power chords and explosive beat made them one of the most influential bands in rock history and were godfathers of punk and pioneers of the rock opera.
The Who's distinctive sound was born of the couplings and collisions among Pete Townshend's alternately raging guitar playing, Keith Moon's powerful drumming style, John Entwistle's agile, thundering bass lines, and Roger Daltrey's impassioned vocals.
The Who then embarked on what they announced would be their last tour, ending with a concert in Toronto on December 17, 1982.

At the end of 1964, the Who signed with Decca on the strength of Townshend's "You Really Got Me" knockoff, "I Can't Explain." The group entered the studio with producer Shel Talmy, who previously worked with the Kinks, and the single was released to little attention in January 1965.
During 1968, the Who delivered their final mod single with the bizarre "Dogs." By that time, the mod audience had declined considerably, and the single bombed, sending Townshend into seclusion to write a rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind boy with a gift for pinball.
The Who began touring later in 1979, but the tour's momentum was crushed when 11 attendees at the group's December 3, 1979 concert at Cincinnati's Riverfront Coliseum were trampled to death in a rush for choice festival seating.

 The Who
Although the Who spent the 60s in the shadow of the Beatles, Stones, and Hendrix, were inconsistent and occasionally formulaic in the 70s, and sporadically reunited for pointless cash-in tours through the 80s and 90s, they were still a first-rate band.

 The Who in Concert!
By sharp contrast to Keith, Roger is one dude who exudes self-respect.
If there's one thing I can't stand, it's Who purists whining to the effect, "Aw, the band's just not the same since Keith Moon died." Of course Keith's shoes were big ones to fill.
He hands it over to Roger, who in turn pulverises it through "Goodbye Sister Disco." You'd seen him do the same thing while performing the same song, at their concert a few nights earlier.

Berserks are human warriors from the North who forego conventional armor for the sake of speed.
Their society seems to be structured around their belief that their god, who resides in the air, is strengthened by the escaping breath of the beings they sacrifice and will one day grow powerful enough to spirit away their enemies - most notably the fir'Bolg, with whom they have sparred for centuries.
Humans who had fought alongside them had come to rely on the fir'bolg ability to attack opponents from a distance, and human militias soon drummed up their own groups of bowmen.

 The Who
The Who were among the first bands, if not the first band, to lock on to that idea from the very beginning, and as a result, no two Who records - at least, not until Keith Moon's demise, that is - sound the same.
Overall though, The Who By Numbers is a serious letdown, marking the Who's transformation from a gritty, cutting edge ensemble brimming with innovation and creativity to a stagnated and unhappy unit.
Who's Last, essentially, is an album for dummies: the biggest offense is that, as unfortunate and tired that farewell tour was, the setlist was NOT coinciding with the tracks they put up on the ensuing record.

The Who Live at Leeds has the reputation of being one of the greatest live performances ever released and MCA/Universal Music are certainly earning their money back on this one.
This latest two-disc edition of the Who's Live At Leeds concert recorded February 14, 1970, at Leeds University should be the final and definite version of this performance.
