The Who

Pete Townshend(Musician, singer, composer and writer; born May 19, 1945 in London, England) Roger DaltreyMusician, singer, composer and actor; born March 1, 1944 in London, England) They were mods, not rockers. But The Who changed the face of rock and roll. Townshend and Daltrey, individually and through The Who, have given the world memories such as these: "My Generation," "Baba O'Riley," "Who Are You," and "Won't Get Fooled Again" not to mention "Pinball Wizard" and "See Me, Feel Me" from The Who's Tommy, which introduced a whole new generation to the group. "If the Rolling Stones symbolize the bad-boy aspect of rock 'n' roll," proclaimed the Washington Post, "England's The Who always stood for commitment, intelligence, responsibility, positive action."Together with their late friends John Entwistle and Keith Moon, they were one band that will never be forgotten.
