Written by Lordy McLord on December 2, 2019
It's been 55 years since The Who made their first recordings. This new album titled "WHO" is an 11 track album and is supported by a long awaited tour. This from the bands website...
LONDON 13 September 2019 The Who have one of the greatest rock legacies in music history, they’re one of the all-time great live bands, have sold over 100 million records worldwide including nine US and ten UK top ten albums and 14 UK top ten singles in a career spanning six decades.
Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend are joined on the album by long-time Who drummer Zak Starkey and bassist Pino Palladino along with contributions from Simon Townshend, Benmont Tench, Carla Azar, Joey Waronker and Gordon Giltrap.
The songs on WHO cover a myriad of subjects including the Grenfell Tower fire, musical theft, spirituality, reincarnation, the power of memory and ‘an old rock star that has lost his marbles’. Singer Roger Daltrey rates it amongst their strongest “I think we’ve made our best album since Quadrophenia in 1973, Pete hasn’t lost it, he’s still a fabulous songwriter, and he’s still got that cutting edge”.
