For many, The Who has been the best British rock band that appeared in the '60s. With it's high-impact stage presence, Pete Townshend's intellect and above all, an exquisite repertoire, The Who can appear side to side with of the greatest: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. In The Many Faces Of The Who we explore the fascinating parallel world of the group: John Entwistle's solo projects, Roger Daltrey's collaborations, their influences, the originals songs that the band made covers of (such as the remarkable 'Young Man Blues' from Mose Allison) and also we celebrate their fantastic repertoire reworked by stars such as Ocean Colour Scene, Cast or the multi-talented Petra Haden, who performs only with his voice the full The Who Sell Out album. With a luxurious cover art, liner notes and a fantastic remastered sound, The Many Faces Of The Who is the album that any fan of British rock can't miss.
For many The Who is the best British rock band that emerge in the 60s. In its original formation (Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Keith Moon and John Entwistle) the group had four unique and charismatic personalities. Townshend was always the ideologue and visionary of the band, someone that from a cultural point of view, always rose above the average rock musician. Also, although being a limited technically speaking- musician, he was highly original, both for the sophisticated chords he played and for his particular ideas when he was approaching his guitar solos, not to mention his devastating stage presence that made him one of the rock's biggest guitar icons. Bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon teamed up for one of the most original and unique rhythm sections ever, complementing each other in a unprecedented way for a rock band. Their particular styles made them reach creative peaks that couldn't been possible without each other, and together they achieved a sound, a constant controlled chaos that no one has been able to recreate again (not even the band itself, since their tragically deaths). And finally, vocalist Roger Daltrey, who had a shy presence during the early part of the decade, but that exploded like a true rock god towards the end of the 60s, when he finally found his voice and stage presence. All this, combined with a repertoire that is among the most exquisite rock has ever had, place The Who alongside the greatest: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. In The Many Faces Of The Who, we are going to explore the fascinating world of the band, their influences, side projects and, most of all, their songs, that wonderful treasure.
