The Who were one of the most popular and influential rock groups of the 1960s and 1970s. Revered by fans, they became a world-class act, securing their longevity with sensational live performances and pioneering music. From their early days as The Detours, they evolved, emerging at the vanguard of the UK Mod movement as The Who. With a vernacular of teenage angst, pop art-inspired attire, and sell-out shows at London’s Marquee Club, The Who cultivated a devoted following and captured the voice of a generation. The Who: Much Too Much follows the group’s tumultuous history. Through the triumphs of Pete Townshend’s ambitious creations in rock operas Tommy and Quadrophenia, to Roger Daltrey’s forays into film and television, and the tragic death of first Keith Moon, then John Entwistle. With incisive text, archive reviews and interviews, and a track-by-track summary of all The Who’s studio and live albums. Sumptuously illustrated with a wealth of colour and black-and-white photography, including album art, this book is a must-have celebration of one of the most enduring names in rock music history.
