Tommy and Quadrophenia
Tommy and Quadrophenia in one package! Yin meets Yang.
Even though Who fans often criticize Tommy, I find myself
watching it a few times a year. Quadrophenia is popular
with my friends. Speaking of Quadrophenia.. During the 1973
Quadrophenia tour, Pete and Roger speak to the audience and
explain Jimmy's story. This is incredible. While most rock stars
pose on the stage, these two guys are standing there telling
a story to the audience. A story about a kid growing up - something
the audience was also attempting to do! The Who always tried new
ways to communicate with their audience. The Tales From The Who bootleg
is my favorite example of this. They perfected this during the 1996-1997
Just the Quad, please. Hey Butthead -- that's the dude who
Quadrophenia - Movie CD
The Who go hi-tech! You can watch Quad from your laptop while
at the beach.
This album absolutely justifies a behind-the-scenes video. All the players
say their bit. I enjoy it when The Who show us the process - creative
and otherwise - that they go through along the way. Yeaaaahhhh!
Who's Better, Who's Best
The safest Who video to put on when there are guests over. I love the
Join Together clip!
Tommy - The Amazing Journey
A behind-the-scenes video for Tommy.
Guitar Method In The Style Of The Who
I haven't watched this one yet.
The Who Live - Featuring The Rock Opera Tommy
The charity gig in Los Angeles that featured Phil Collins, Billy Idol and
Steve Winwood (who was also in the orchestra version of Tommy). I like this
show - its pleasant Tommy.
The Who Rocks America
When I first got into The Who in the early 80's, this video was
on HBO every ten minutes. I watched it hundreds of times. Glad
they played Naked Eye.
The Who Live At The Royal Albert Hall
Fuckin' A! Its the year 2000 and The Who are playing better than
ever! I hope I'm so active and able when I hit mid-50's. The guest
performances are a good addition, but the story here is the famed live
performance of The Who. They're aging gracefully and no one plays better.
Monterey Pop Festival
Some of The Who's legendary set. More on Monterey at
The Woodstock Project - Monterey.
The Who at Woodstock
Three videos of The Who at Woodstock so far. The first one is a documentary of the festival.
More of that on another site of mine - The Woodstock Project - Woodstock.
It has a few clips of The Who. Woodstock - The Music is new and relatively unknown.
Its the only official source I know of for My Generation at Woodstock. And of course there's
the Woodstock movie we all know and love.
The Who At The 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival
My favorite live Who show. The first video is great - the story behind is at
The Woodstock Project - Isle Of Wight.
The second video is an official Japanese release of the show that finally made it to
Tower Records. It has everything but Naked Eye! I made my own copy of the show connecting
this video and Naked Eye from the first one. Get both of these - they're just as important
to rock as Woodstock.
