267 The Real Who

Who?

No. The Who.

Quadrophenia was dropped in October 1973. It was The Who’s sixth studio album and second rock opera. Someone I worked with, years ago, loved this album. They once told me a story about how it had blown their mind. He would arrange his speakers around him and listen to it for hours. I had never heard it before. I didn’t know that W.A.S.P.’s The Real Me was a cover of a song on this album. I kinda feel like I should have known. I don’t know why. I can identify the popular tunes from The Who when I hear them and I didn’t need to be told that the CSI’s where using them as intro music. Basically, this boils down to, yeah, I think The Who is a great band but this particular album didn’t do much for me.
