Pete Townshend worked on the song, originally as a slow blues, all through the summer of 1965, as The Who toured Scandinavia and Holland.
On 13 January 1968, the band took a major step to the grand concepts of their later work, as 'The Who Sell Out' made its British chart debut.
Endlessly underrated, Hardin wrote some of the most beautiful and enduring songs of his day, including the endlessly-covered 'If I Were A Carpenter' and 'Reason To Believe.'
The No. 3 debut is the band's best since 1981's 'Face Dances.'
With their twelfth album, ‘WHO’, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have created a wise, relevant record that would have startled their younger selves.
The band will once again team with local symphony orchestras for the North American performances, which will now begin on 21 April in Hollywood, FL.
The show is the latest in the company's series of anniversary events, releases and more that have run throughout 2019.
Pete Townshend admitted that he wrote the song for his own amusement, and initially didn't even consider it for 'The Who By Numbers.'
The reflective but uplifting song shows Pete Townshend's sense of melody and riveting lyricism at the height of their powers, and Roger Daltrey in the vocal form of his career.
"As Londoners, it’s very surreal to be immortalised in stone on Camden High Street," said Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey in a statement.
In November 1980, the Who guitarist and writer made his third solo entry of the year on the Hot 100.
'The Who By Numbers' was a more conventional studio album after the panoramic ambition of 1973’s 'Quadrophenia,' but far from average.
The Who’s rock musical ’Tommy’ is returning to Broadway, 26 years after the show’s run ended, with original director Des McAnuff leading the new production.
Pete Townshend says the track “is dedicated to every artist who has ever been accused of ripping off someone else’s song."
As he became an octogenarian, B.B. released the all-star album featuring Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Elton John, Van Morrison and many more.
