The Power & The Glory Of The Who
Has there ever been a more effective and exciting rock group than The Who in their pomp? Their recorded output may have seemed a bit flat in comparison to their kinetic, auto-destructive live shows, but they left some brilliant stuff behind. & they always looked great.
Here's the moment in 1968 when Moon the Loon bribed stage hands on 'The Smothers Brothers' show to pack his bass drum with a huge amount of flash powder leading to a massive explosion, and permanent damage to Pete Townshend's ear drums. Nice one, Keith.
