Emerging from the mod & pop-art movement in early 1960s London, The Who (Roger Daltrey, John Entwhistle, Keith Moon, Pete Townshend) formed in 1964. Bringing together influences ranging from American rock n' roll, blues, jazz, classical, R&B and country gave the band a varied approach that differed greatly from the typical English pop stylings of the period. Upon release of their first single, 1964's "I Can't Explain", was an immediate hit, reaching Top Ten on the UK charts. Rave reviews of their sets at London's Marquee Club brought them added attention, subsequently earning them a reputation as one of rock's premier live acts. Their popularity was also magnified by their occasional practice of destroying their instruments at the conclusion of their sets, brought about partially by frustration but also as a statement. Their profile increased with the release of their first album, 1965's "My Generation" which peaked at No. 5 on the charts. Over the next dozen-plus years, the band recorded and released an unbroken string of hit albums, including "The Who Sell Out", "Tommy", "Live at Leeds", "Who's Next", "Quadrophenia" and "Who Are You". Each album achieved both commercial and critical success, and their heavy touring schedule featured iconic performances at such legendary events as 1967's Monterey Pop and 1969's Woodstock. Townshend's talents as composer and producer led him to film work, highlighted by 1975's "Tommy". Keith Moon's death in September 1978 briefly placed the band on hiatus, but they reformed in 1979 with drummer Kenney Jones replacing Moon for shows in London, the Cannes Film Festival and New York City. Another film, "Quadrophenia" was also released that year as was a retrospective documentary, "The Kids Are Alright". One of rock music's most influential and imitated bands, the Who's legacy extended far beyond music into fashion and politics, making them as popular and successful as any of their fellow British Invasion contemporaries. Bands such as Green Day, Oasis, the Ramones and the Clash were directly influenced by the Who, and their biography also includes induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
