The Who

Along with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the Who complete the holy trinity of British rock. The group began as fashionable London mods, playing a self-styled brand of “Maximum R&B,” but became much more: the pioneers of rock opera, a powerhouse arena act, and among the first rock groups to successfully integrate (rather than merely fiddle with) synthesizers. Their smashed guitars and overturned (or blown up) drum kits symbolized the violent passions of a band that mixed four distinct and powerful sounds: Pete Townshend’s alternately raging or majestic guitar playing, Keith Moon’s nearly anarchic drumming style, John Entwistle’s facile, thundering bass lines, and Roger Daltrey’s impassioned vocals.
