1976 – Energetic live performances? Yes. Some of the greatest music ever produced? Got it.
Forming in 1964, Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon would
ultimately change the face of rock music (yet again) with songs such as “My Generation,”
“I Can’t Explain,” and albums like Tommy and Who’s Next. Keith Moon’s destructive lifestyle
contributed to his 1978 drug overdose and death. Moon’s amazing energy and high-voltage
drum power can be seen in a number of the 10 slides in this collection. Images such as these
are rare, and spectacularly capture the Who’s incredible stage presence. This powerful band
of agile performers not only offered fans songs that defined their “generation,” but stage shows
that could quite often be described as catastrophic, with Townshend and Moon virtually
destroying the stage and their instruments!
