The Who defined a generation and rocked the world. "My Generation," "Pinball Wizard," and "Baba O'Riley" are some of the most iconic tracks in rock history. The rock opera Tommy, the genre-defining Live at Leeds, and the R&B classic Quadrophenia are just some of The Who's albums. The band's original lineup had an amazing 15-year run, as they blazed their way around the globe, performing live and recording until the death of drummer Keith Moon in 1978. John Entwhistle died in 2002, but remaining founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend continue to tour.
Treasures of The Who takes you on the journey with the band as they conquered the world: from small London clubs to Madison Square Garden, from seven-inch vinyl releases to multimillion-selling albums, all the way to recognition as global rock gods.
The text has been researched and written by Chris Welch, the legendary English journalist who was close to the band, and it is accompanied by images from many of the best contemporary photographers. There are also removable facsimiles of stunning, super-rare memorabilia from one of the biggest collections around. It adds up to a unique experience: the story of The Who in your hands.
