So George W thinks The Who's sound "still resignates through the music industry". I say, how true! With their groundhogbreaking powder chords in Pinhead Wizard, they set the trenchmark for past generations still to come.

What do you think about the four surviving members of the Beatles and the Who joining and making a band?

The lineup would be:

Roger Daltrey - vocals
Pete Townshend - guitar
Paul McCartney - bass
Ringo Starr - drums

Can you imagine Ringo playing drums in "My Generation"?

Wow, hombre, this is a completely AWESOME idea!

Only modifications I might make:

a) Have Paul do some vocals too, he's got an OK voice  :-/
b) Rhythm guitarist? I know Pete didn't need one in The Who, so maybe it's silly to think of adding a 5th person to the group for that reason. I guess it boils down to - can Paul's songs be properly played with only 1 guitar and a bass?

Cheers for major league thinking outside the box, hombre!

Of course Paul would sing too, and Pete would do backing vocals; and both of them being the songwriters of new material. A 5th Whotle? Maybe a hidden one to play keyboards or another guitar in live acts.

Yes, I was thinking for live acts. Also, I think music writing and arranging chemistry is better with 3 in the room than 2, even if the heavy lifting is just done by two. Just my two cents!

I'm sorry, I really want to bring this topic back to life.
I can't stop listening to their music!!
Keith's drumming makes my jaw drop every time!
I got 'The Who Sell Out', and I listened to the entire album twice in a row, while I was drawing.
I suck at drawing them right now, because I just started, but I feel like I get more ideas of what to draw when I listen to them! The same effect goes with The Beatles, RHCP, sometimes Nirvana, etc.
Did I mention Keith's drumming is completely AWESOME??  ;D
And Oh my God, Pete is something else! He created something completly remarkable with that guitar.
And John's bass playing is so fast and organized, sometimes it doesn't even look like he's trying!
Roger's voice is so powerful, it's still strong after so many years!
I really want to know more about them, I feel like such a newbie.  ;D

Yaaaay!!!!! You HAVE to get Tommy, it's my favorite album of theirs next to Who's next. They got me into Classic rock and they're just awesome. If you want to know more about them you should watch "Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who" It's got everything you want to know about them in there. Just pure epicness.

My step dad has 'Tommy'! I need to steal it now! Heck, I need to get most of their albums.  ;D

Aye, and definitely get the Deluxe Edition! It's got the whole concert, including Tommy almost in its entirety on disc 2!

The Who were also excellent in the Rolling Stones Rock & Roll Circus.

Someone said Jethro Tull was pretty good there (I forget who) but in fact they weren't actually playing. They were lip synching to the studio album version of the song, unfortunately. A real shame, since generally they're such a great band.

As for The Dirty Mac, I liked both songs entirely, including Yoko's singing. Consider it instrumental music rather than a song. Some people have said (and I agree) that if it were, say, Eric Clapton's guitar making those sounds rather than Yoko's voice, it would have been thought amazing, but the fact is it is Yoko's voice and unfortunately people are too busy Yoko-bashing to enjoy the musicality of it.

I discovered The Who from Paul. In that one interview where he said he wrote "Helter Skelter" in attempt to make a song that's raunchier and more aggressive than Pete Townshend's song, "I can see for miles" (i'm not sure if he really said which song). I wanted to listen to Pete's song to compare the two. So I watched this:
The Who - I Can See For Miles

And I was like:   :o
Helter Skelter is obviously harder and scarier, but I love both songs.  ;D
