The Who are an English rock band who first came to prominence in the 1960s, and grew in stature to become one of the greatest rock 'n' roll bands of all time. Except for periods of retirement from 1983 to 1988 and from 1990 to 1995, the band members have continued to perform as a live act and have recently re-entered the studio.

Noted for the dynamism of their performances and for their thoughtful and art-influenced music, the members of The Who are also acknowledged as rock pioneers, popularising, along with contemporaries The Kinks, the power chord and the rock opera (most notably Tommy) under the leadership of Pete Townshend. Their earlier "mod" albums, which boasted short, aggressive pop songs, Townshend's distinctive power chords, Keith Moon's explosive drumming, and constant themes of youthful rebellion and romantic confusion, were formative influences on punk rock and power pop, helping them earn the accolade "The Godfathers of Punk". In their early days they were notorious for auto-destructive art displays, destroying their instruments at the end of shows (an activity favored both by infamous wildman Moon and by Townshend, whose guitar-smashing would become a rock cliché).

The Who are on a world tour as of June 2006, that will last into 2007.

The Who are #8 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock and #9 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Rock 'n' Roll.

From mod rockers to rock operas to hard rock, The Who reigned triumphant as prime contenders, in the minds of many, for the title of World's Greatest Rock Band. - The Who's display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

One of my fav bands of all time.
But now after seeing Tommy, all I see when I look at pics of Keith Moon is "Uncle Ernie likes to fiddle about"
