How Music Changed

    The Who must hold a world record for announcing their dissolution and subsequent reformation.

    On the one hand, the band seemed anxious to part and get on with their separate lives, but then seemed equally desperate to reform and cash in on the value of their name – not that I could blame them. This show captures the era after the band’s first ‘official’ break up. It has Roger Daltrey releasing a pair of mediocre solo albums, and Pete Townshend careening in so many directions that he was hard to see. Oddly, John Entwistle remained quiet for a long while.
