How well do you know The Who?

You give us the what, when, where, why and how.

 

Whether you discovered them during their initial string of hit albums, or caught on later in their career, we can all agree that The Who is one of the most iconic musical acts of all time.

It doesn't get more "classic rock" than The Who, so let's take a look back at their catalog together. We'll leave a word or two out of a song title, and it's your job to fill in the blank. Good luck, and be sure to share your thoughts and your score in the comments section below.

  1. "_______ O'Riley"

I once asked myself what was the greatest all-around rock song of all time. One song that contained all of the elements that made that classic song the greatest of all, and then Won't Get Fooled Again played on my car radio and I knew this was my choice. What's yours?

They had so many - but WGFA still gives me chills - I crank Pete's guitar and Daltrey's yell when I get it in the car

"You got 9 out of 12. YOU won't get fooled again!"

Any time The Who is mentioned I immediately think of a high school classmate and world class
stoner name George P.
A super dedicated fan, if there was a Who or Grateful Dead concert within 400 miles he and his
crew jumped into his VW bus and went there, just on the chance they'd score tickets.
Many is the time we'd see them just arrive back in town, pull up into the school parking lot,
outside my 1st period class window, and they'd float out in their tour t-shirts.
I don't know if he was the most successful out of the class but he was probably one
of the happiest, a free spirit who was always reaching out and enjoying life and people.
Rock on George wherever you are, but if you wound up a drone in a cubicle somewhere I
don't ever want to know.

You mean if he ended up being homeless vs getting a job that would have been better for him?

Yes Boris, that's exactly what I meant. To quote Satchmo when asked to explain the Blues,
"if I have to explain it to you, you'll never know."

No, the last I heard he went to McGill University and was pursuing a writing career.
A free spirit like him would not flourish in a sterile office cubicle.
Could you see a Steve Martin or Hunter Thompson or Robin Williams toiling in a Insurance office?
So, where in my above post did I ever say I hoped he died? Or that being homeless was
a preferable option?
Sigh. People read into things what they want to, for some reason.
Boris is just trying to stir the possum, but in your case I most always enjoy your posts
so I don't get where you are coming from with the above comment.
