The Who - Maximum R&B
Found in Who homes across the globe.. This and David
Marsh's book are the two most popular Who books. The original
of this one came with a flexy 45" with Pete's Pinball Wizard
and Won't Get Fooled Again demos.
Before I Get Old
A lot less pictures than in Maximum R&B but a lot more
Pete's book of autobiographical fiction. The critics liked
it too. I make it a point to read it every year.
The Minstrel's Dilemma
Right on! A professor analysing Pete's work from the literary
perspective and the artist-business struggle that our favorite
minstrel goes through. I waited years for a book like this. There
should be more!
The Who Concert File
Co-written by Who author extraordinaire Irish Jack, this book is
The Bible for those of us who have 200+ Who shows on cd.
A great Who book - pictures and stories.
The Complete Guide To The Music Of The Who
Chris Charlesworth gives us his Cliffs' Notes to Who songs. I also have
the Paul Simon version of this book series. Great for beach reading.
Rock'n'roll Comics - The Who
They don't look 100% like The Who, but this pirate comic is also great
beach reading material.
1981 Tour Program
It makes my day when I find these in a record store or on Ebay.
1982 Tour Program and Book
The book sums up where The Who
were when they called it quits.
1989 Tour Program
One more for the gipper.
My heroes on the cover of Time Magazine!
I was in Time a number
of years ago. I'm still shooting for the cover, like The Who.
As the 1989 tour approached..
Teenage Wasteland - The Early Who
I found this one in Tower Records.
The Who Guitar Books
Tommy, The Definitive Collection and Its Hard. The Definitive Collection is a four
volume set with the chords/tablature to every Who song - its the one to get. I've
sat for hours on these books and can play a mean version of the Overture. The first
thing I did on the Internet was search for the tablature for Who songs. I put up
a collection of Who tabs and next thing I knew, people were sending me stuff
via email. Today, everything you need is at The Who.net -
guitar tablature. Seeing that even a Who guitar site could work, it hit me that someone
would eventually have to put up a collection of homework too. That's how the mind works..

Classic Performances of The Who - Volume 1
Stewart Hellman is a Who fan since before I was born. He's also a helluva photographer. He put this book together in 2001
from pictures he took in the late 60's and early 70's. Most are from Tanglewood, July 7, 1970. The action shots of Daltrey
in the middle of the book are my favorite. So are a few photos of Townshend, Daltrey and Moon - the three showoffs of The Who -
together, doing their stuff. I have bootlegs of all of the shows covered in the book and even videos of most of them. This book makes
a statement of who The Who were in the prime of their career.
Click here if you want a copy of this book. I really appreciate it when a fan puts something like this together - somehow it means
more than all the other books.
