... pick up my guitar and play !

Just like yesterday...

and I get on my knees and pray

We don't get fooled again !!
What a guy Pete Townshend, such a character..

I think unique in the whole history of Rock Music...

Over his shoulders lies, almost, the whole Who's body of work ...

He had Keith Moon, John Entwistle and Roger Daltrey, with him... but he was able to write so many great tunes on his own..

"Who's next" is a kick in the face.. starting from the cover photo ... until the last track "Won't Get Fooled Again"..

I have this feeling over politics now.. but "the Who" sang it almost 40 years ago...


  1. One of my top ten faves of all time. Great shot of Pete. Saw them in '78 and nearly got trampled.

  2. You don't need to see Pete's face to recognize him.. he's the only one of its kind..

    What about that concert.. was Keith Moon there ??

  3. I'm loving everybody right now, everybody seems to be posting about The Who which is amazing. My favourite band EVER; so much love and admiration for them.
    'Who's Next', I bought on vinyl last week. Ever so slowly picking up all The Who albums in that format, such a treasure.

    Thanks for such a lovely comment on my blog darling, it made me smile.
    Hope you're well.


  4. bloody mp3 generation... ;(

    Now they sell them though, but theirs are not cheap..

  5. I love The Who, there is so much magic in that band it is insane. I love and have so much respect for Pete. Who's Next is incredible I will never get sick of it.

    lovely blog!
