Who Apperances
Happy Who Day





Tonight The Who will be performing, and to kickoff the event, we'd like to debut the new thewho.net that we are working on.

Before we give the url, we want to make it clear that it's a "work in progress" and that's why we haven't simply replaced this site with the new one. We still have a lot of work to do, but we're happy with the new look and want to share it with you.

The new site, in addition to a new look, also has some new content. Particularly in the "bibliography" section! Thanks to Peter, Brian and Dave we've vastly expanded the books and articles sections and we hope you will enjoy the new additions.

We hope you enjoy the new site and will participate with us in making it even better than this site!!! Please, use the forums, add comments where appropriate, and let us know what you think of the new look and the new content. In the coming days we'll have more new additions, and over the coming weeks we'll be finishing the new site and migrating it here to www.thewho.net in the mean time, visit our new site at http://beta.thewho.net
