The Who News

I love YouTube and even more so when I find recordings like the one above: a very rare demo of the song "Who Are You" which someone made this video to accompany the song! Great work!

The Museum at Bethel Woods will feature some Pete Townshend memorabilia at an upcoming exhibit which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock Arts & Music Festival. More information is here.

Here is an interview with Rush's Geddy Lee in which he talks of how influential Pete Townshend was on his songwriting.

Big Who fans, Pearl Jam, explain their album, Ten, here.

The band, Mushroom, says here they are going to revive Pete Townshend's Lifehouse, which was a Townshend project that transmogrified itself into the album, Who's Next.

Meanwhile, The Who's rock opera Quadrophenia is being brought to the stage.

The band is currently on a tour of Australia and New Zealand. Click me to read an interview conducted with Pete Townshend by The Australian.
