The Who is prepping for their fiftieth anniversary and are looking to fans for audio and video recordings to add to the anniversary releases.

They can be contacted via Donal Hurley at the above board.

The guitar-smashing distracted people from the essence of The Who. They did music that was really, really good.

I agree, loved the music but hated the destruction. At the time I could only dream about playing a Strat!

Back in rock days, Happy Jack was always in our repertoire. These days performing solo, I love singing Squeeze Box.

Seen them a few times, sadly sans Keith Moon.

plant has kept his voice well. I wonder if the collective energy persists, as in, for instance, the powerful medly of tommy songs on " live at leads"

Would that be a black dog?

I bought the Roger Daltrey and Wilko Johnson album, Going Back Home, the other week. The lad still has it.

I got it when it first came out because I thought old Wilko was close to going to the Big Gig. Glad he's still here and seemingly holding his own.

Excellent album BTW. I can highly recommend it.

Hey Pete from Seventh Heaven - Plant was in Led Zeppelin. You ask if "their collective energy persists" well there is only one surviving musician and the singer left and they dont appear to have much energy at all. The rely on other people to supplement their live sound - including my friend Steve Bolton a few years back.

The early singles are sublime.

To a lot of guys my age who played in 'punk' bands in the late 70's
"I Can't Explain" & "The Kids Are Alright" are a core constituent of our DNA.

After "Magic Bus" they went a bit cack.

But despite all that pretentiousness
they still managed to create the occasional brilliant track like "Baba O'Riley"
every now and then...

Not the biggest fan of the band. That said, I caught a stage musical of Tommy in London and finally 'got the story'. The movie was 'shall we say' a bit over the top (Oliver Reed/Ann Margaret)!

My choice for the '50th anniversary tour' would be 'Who Cares'?
