The World’s Greatest Rock Band. The Who stands alone in rock music. The most explosive live act ever to appear on stage, propelled by the most staggeringly brilliant rhythm section in all popular music, layered with deafening power chords and thunderous vocal fury, The Who transcended its original billing as "Maximum R&B" to become the most musically inventive and structurally innovative band of all time. Together, the four divergent personalities of The Who produced a hurricane. Each of them was a pioneer. Wildman drummer Keith Moon beat his kit with a chaotic elegance; stoic bassist John Entwistle held down the center with the melodic virtuosity of a solo guitarist; raging intellectual Pete Townshend punctuated the epic universality of his songs with the windmill slamming of his fingers across his guitar strings; and Roger Daltrey roared above it all with an impossibly virile macho swagger. They exploded conventional rhythm and blues structures, challenged pop music conventions, and redefined what was possible on stage, in the recording studio, and on vinyl. Never before or since has spiritual and intellectual brilliance sounded so gloriously furious.

Alone among the great bands, The Who has found itself at the center of every major rock event-- Monterey, Woodstock, the Isle of Wight, the Concert for Kampuchea, Live Aid, the Concert for NYC. In any era, The Who is a touchstone for rock and roll greatness. They have sold over 100 million albums and won every award including Grammys/Brit Awards/Lifetime Achievement. They have been inducted into both the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and UK Music Hall of Fame. Their charitable work is legendary with millions of dollars raised over the years for a variety of causes.

The 1965 debut album for the group led by vocalist Roger Daltrey produced right after the group's first singles hit the charts. Critics often rate it as one of the best rock albums of all time. Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 237/500!

A Quick One, released in 1966, was released in the U.S. under the name Happy Jack rather than the sexually suggestive title of the UK release. Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 383/500!

Released in 1967, The Who Sell Out is a concept album containing a collection of songs interspersed with fake commercials and public service announcements. The intended irony relates to the fact that The Who were making commercials during that period of their career. Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 113/500!

Tommy is a double album telling a story of a 'deaf, dumb and blind boy' who becomes the leader of a messianic movement. It was the first musical work to be billed as a rock opera. In 1998, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for 'historical, artistic and significant value'.

Who's Next, released in 1971, has origins in a rock opera conceived by Pete Townshend called Lifehouse. The complex project did not come to fruition at the time and instead, many of the songs written for the project were compiled onto this album of unrelated songs. The critical and commercial success upon release was certified 3X platinum by the RIAA in 2009.

The group's second rock opera, Quadrophenia, was released in 1973 and involves social, musical and psychological events from an English teenage perspective set in London in the mid-'60s. The title of the album refers to the four distinct personalities of 'Jimmy' and also, to the quadrophonic sound, which was, at the time, a recent invention.

Released in October 1975, The Who By Numbers was named the tenth best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll.

The eight studio album by the band, Who Are You was released in 1978. The title track was, and still is, perhaps their most well-known song. This was the last album with Keith Moon as the drummer; he died approximately three weeks after its release.

1981's Face Dances sees a change in the lineup with Kenney Jones replacing the late Keith Moon on drums. The first single from the album "You Better You Bet" was one of the first music videos aired on MTV in 1981.

It's Hard was the last album to feature bassist John Entwistle and drummer Kenny Jones and the group's final album prior to 2006's Endless Wire.

The 11th album, Endless Wire, released in 2006, features Roger Daltrey on lead vocals and Pete Townshend on stringed instruments, keyboards, etc., plus a host of additional musicians rounding out the line-up.
