The Who

The Who

The Who are an English rock band formed in Shepherd`s Bush, West London, United Kingdom, in 1964. They grew to be considered one of the greatest and most influential recordings groups in the world; they are also famed for their prowess as a live band–winning awards and being described as "possibly the greatest live band ever"–primarily due to their energetic, loud performances and their smashing of instruments. The primary lineup consisted of Pete Townshend (lead guitar, vocals), Roger Daltrey (lead vocals), John Entwistle (bass, vocals) and Keith Moon (drums, vocals).
