Item description for The Who By Numbers: The Story Behind Every Who Song by Alan Parker...
The Who are one of the most important and enduring rock bands of all time, but this is the first book to give their music-rather than their rock and roll lifestyles-the credence it deserves. From early anthems like "My Generation" to later classics like "Who Are You"-taking in Tommy and Quadrophenia along the way-this is an anecdote-packed, album-by-album, song-by-song commentary on the songs of one of the classic rock bands, The Who.
