The Who

 

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!
