MEMBERS OF THE GROUP

Peter  Townshend

Roger Daltrey

John Entwistle

Keith Moon

THE EARLY YEARS-----  The group basically started in western London in 1964 . The group was playing in their tavern called the Railway and Peter ;s leap into the air made his gitar smash into the low ceiling and to make it part of the act and not look foolish he smashed the gitar into his amp and the wild drummer Keith was happy to join right in and smashed his drums  , while roger also join into the fun and took the mikes and mike stands and smashed amps etc. This is how there crazy stage show end for years after due to how well the crowd reacted to it.   The Groups original name was The Detours until one night the manager of the club forgot their name and said the name of your group is the who ? and they paused for a second and said yes that is our name THE WHO!  The Groups early singles were produced by the Kinks producer and that is why they may sound simialr . The Group had mild hits with such songs as Can't Explain and Anyway, Anyhow but did not enjoy true stardom until they released their first Rock opera Tommy in 1969 after playing in the Monterey Pop festival and Woodstock the group had secured their place in rock history.

The Group became even more famous after their appearance in Woodstock and was always famous for their wild concert style. I was luckly enough to see the group in one of the early concerts at Rosevelt Racetrack on Long Island Ny during the era where they smashed all their instruments at the end of the concert!
