I know I gotta discipline myself again

Site Updates
Volunteers





We're looking for a few good people!

We need several people to help us "moderate" the new forums! It will be a simple "job", just helping to ensure that the forums run smoothly and don't get attacked by "spam bots". We plan to monitor the forums regularly, but we can always use more eyes to ensure that the forums run smoothly.

If you're interested, let us know!

We're also looking for everyone to help us gather "news". If you read an article or see something on your favorite mailing list or forum that is "news worthy", please use the "Submit news" button. We'd like our "Who News" section to be THE place on the web for everyone to find ther news about The Who.

We're also hoping that EVERYONE will volunteer to make thewho.net the premier Who site. We've now got some SERIOUS competition from the band's official site (www.thewho.com), but with your participation we think we can continue to be THE unofficial home for The Who on the web! The first thing we'd like to encourage is that everyone upload pictures to our new picture gallery! If you have a photo, or scans of ticket stubbs, posters - or anything that might interest other fans??? UPLOAD them!!!!

We're also looking for help gathering ALL of The Who's video content from YouTube! Our "Who Theater" allows everyone to add links to YouTube. Please help us gather all the great stuff that's been uploaded there! We plan to use those links to display cool videos on our site, in places like the new discography we're working on. If you have a favorite YouTube video, check if its on our list, if not, submit it!!!

One day like today...
1967
Mono mixes of "Jaguar" and "Rael" are prepared for the upcoming album. It is at this point that the "Part 2" section of "Rael is chopped off, not to return until the 1994 30 Years of Maximum R&B boxset.

1968
Decca/MCA's own Who oldies collection Magic Bus - The Who On Tour hits the U.S. charts. The album gets bad marks in the Underground press for a title that could mislead buyers into thinking it was a live album (read Rolling Stone magazine's review for an example). Despite, or perhaps because of the confusion, the album reaches #39 on the Billboard charts making it The Who's first Top Forty album in the U.S. The LP also features a rare, excellent stereo mix of "Magic Bus" along with a wonderfully garish psychedelic cover.

1969
The classical music reviewer for The New York Times, Clive Barnes, discusses The Who and rock operas in an article. Barnes, who attended one of the recent Fillmore East shows, says the band played their music too loud but, nevertheless, dubs Tommy "an enormous success" and predicts that a new kind of opera could arise from it. That night The Who perform at the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh. The James Gang is the supporting act. After this night, The Who split up for separate vacations in the U.S. Pete flies down to Florida with roadie "Wiggy" Wolff to spend the time at his old friend Tom Wright's father's farm. One night "at three in the morning drunk out of my brain" Pete writes The Who's next single "The Seeker."",

1970
The Who play in Stoke

1973
The massive Quadrophenia double album is released in the U.K. However the initial run sells out quickly and, due to a shortage of vinyl caused by the OPEC oil embargo, additional copies are not pressed for another week and a half. Also on this day part two of Pete's interview about Quadrophenia is broadcast on Rockspeak.

1989
The Who perform at Wembley Arena in London. Roger's voice gives out toward the end and he is forced to leave the stage. Pete wraps it up singing "Behind Blue Eyes" and "Won't Get Fooled Again" all on his lonesome.

1991
Two Rooms, The Elton John-Bernie Taupin tribute album featuring The Who's last studio recording to date, "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting," enters the U.K. charts. It reaches #21.

1996
The Who play in Las Vegas
