The Who, one of the greatest rock bands of all time, began in 1964 and, when photographed live at the Fillmore East in June 1969, had just released their landmark rock opera Tommy. In a “People Are Talking About …” feature of Vogue, Tommy was praised as “celebrating the quiet divinity of explosion”, seriously extending rock’s musical range. The Who were John Entwistle, Pete Townshend, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey. Along with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, The Who were part of “the holy trinity of British rock” in the words of Rolling Stone magazine.
