On 30 June 1967, one major British band showed solidarity to another, in dramatic circumstances.
Released on 25 June 1971 as a UK single, the song was a preview of what became, for many, The Who's greatest album, 'Who’s Next.'
'Rock music that incorporates elements of traditional or classical music', surely a key art-rock principle is forging ahead, the shock of the new?
The Who frontman was in fine form on his first studio album in his own name since 1992.
Released 23 May 1969, The Who's ‘Tommy’ is a masterpiece…a word that is applied to all too many recordings, but in the case it probably doesn't go far enough.
'Live At Leeds' was a definitive in-concert album and "a very valid bit of plastic," as Roger Daltrey said.
The first studio record the band made without Moon, 'Face Dances,' entered the American album chart on 4 April 1981.
The 'Covered-19' series will see the artists release a new track entirely self-produced and recorded from her NYC flat every fortnight during the lockdown.
Born on 1 April 1946, Ronnie was one of the UK's great treasures, happy both in a group setting, as a collaborator or bandleader.
The track from 'Tommy' became Elton's first UK top ten single since another cover, of The Beatles' 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.'
The new dates will now begin at the 3 Arena in Dublin on 5 March next year.
Pete Townshend said the band “haven’t reached this decision easily, but given the concerns about public gatherings, we couldn’t go ahead”.
Recorded on 7 February 1969, ‘Pinball Wizard’ was pivotal to the success of ‘Tommy’, but the single very nearly didn't get recorded.
BluesClub, featuring Guy Fletcher, Robbie McIntosh and others, will play the fundraiser in honour of former bandmate Rogan, longtime guitar tech of Pete Townshend.
The long-out-of-print LP joins five additional albums from Van Zandt making all of Little Steven’s records from his early career once again available on vinyl.
