The Who was formed in London in 1964 and, over the past 50 years, became one of history's most influential rock bands. The original crew consisted of vocalist Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend, bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon. With a number of hit singles and albums - My Generation (1965), A Quick One (1966) and The Who Sell Out (1967) - the Who solidified their position as the voice of the mid-’60s youth. With their fourth release, Tommy (1968), the band pushed the boundaries of what an album could be. Tommy was the first album of its kind to be labeled a "rock opera." The album was later turned into a film, with a cast that included Jack Nicholson, Eric Clapton and Elton John, and later staged as a Broadway musical. The Who continued their successful run with classics Who's Next (1971) and Quadrophenia (1973). Just 20 days after the release of the album Who Are You (1978) drummer Keith Moon died of an overdose. Many argue that a large part of the band died with him, but, with replacement drummer Kenny Jones, the remaining members carried on and released two more albums in the early ‘80s. After this, 20 years would pass before the band released another studio album, 2006’s Lesswire. John Entwistle died of a heart attack in 2002, a day before the band was to begin touring. Bassist Pino Palladino eventually took his place. In recent years, The Who have retained their relevancy with a performance at the 2010 Super Bowl, and a number of appearances in the soundtracks of various TV shows, movies and video games.
