'LEGENDS OF THE ''ROCK-POP'' SCENE'
on 2 April 2014
The original members 'Pete Townsend' 'Roger Daltrey' 'Keith Moon' 'John Entwistle'
The group were as well known for their antics on the stage as for their music, they
were certainly seen as 'wild'
However Rock/Pop history will place the group as one of 'The all-Time-Great-Acts' no
I guess the song that really got them noticed was their number 2 hit in 1965 'My Generation'
though they had two slightly earlier top ten successes with 'I can't Explain' and 'Anyway,
They of course went on to record classic's such as 'Substitute' (also 1965) and maybe
their best known release featured in the film 'Tommy' --that being--'Pinball Wizard'
Down the years they achieved twenty one Top thirty entries fifteen of which charted
in the Top Ten, amazingly, though a few numbers reached number two they never actually
ever reached the number one slot.
Among the numbers on-board I've yet to mention........'I'm A Boy'......'Pictures of Lily'......
'I Can See For Miles'.......'Who are You'......'Happy Jack'......and.......'Squeeze Box'
Just some of the memorable numbers of this ''Great'' group on board (20 tracks in all)
This album is certainly worth checking out if you are wanting an example of the groups
most popular tracks.
Sadly two of the original group have along the way passed-on, those being 'Keith Moon'
7th September 1978 aged just 32, and 'John Entwistle' 27th June 2002 aged 57.
