The Who may be the world’s loudest band, but they may also be the most creative. While the song writing and recording got more and more complex, they never stopped taking their unique version of Rock ‘n’ Roll to the stage demonstrating that they were never shy of the spotlight. Roger Daltrey the shirtless and bellowing front man. Pete Townshend the ever-active bordering on violent guitar player. John Entwistle the calm and quiet giant on bass, and Keith Moon the manic wild man behind the drum kit. While their contemporaries were getting a lot of the accolades, The Who broke barriers as song writers with complex songs and concept albums, iconic live performances at the Monterey Pop festival and Woodstock, and making solo records while remaining a group. Throughout it all Pete Townshend remains the driving force behind the Who as the main songwriter and creative engine that has driven the group for almost 60 years. That is why on this episode Mike and Louis not only discuss their favorite Who recordings, but also their favorite Pete Townshend solo songs.
