Artist discography


In 1970, The Who released Live at Leeds which became one of few real live albums, not being fixed and recorded in one night. The actually recorded 2 shows but Entwistle´s bass was missing in the mix in the other show from Hull so they had to pick the Leeds show to release. By this time, their sound was made for the arenas but they had to make the big stadium songs first on a studio album which Townshend had no problem in writing. He know early that Baba O´Riley, Behind blue eyes and Won´t get fooled again were designed to be big. When Who´s next came out, it went #1 in the U.K. This album was a real triumph for The Who, there´s not a dull moment on this album from 1971. A true milestone in rocknroll history and simply their best album.

Did you know that?

The Who were originally called The Detours, then changed their name to The Who after a suggestion by Townsend´s friend Richard Barnes. Their first manager, Pete Meaden, renamed them The High Numbers, and they released one unsuccessful single, Zoot Suit, under that name. When EMI dropped them the band sacked Pete Meaden and went back to being called The Who.

It is said another possible reason was because of Peter Townshend´s grandmother, who would always refer to popular bands as "The Who?" mainly because of hard hearing.
