The Who: 1973-1976 - Quadrophenia to One of the Boys

Released Tuesday, 22nd January 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
By 1973, The Who were superstars. Their gargantuan rock opera Quadrophenia had given wayward teenagers a mirror with which to find themselves, even though the ensuing tour would be the catalyst for each band member to go a bit off the rails in their own ways.

Join host Marc With a C on a sojourn through 1973 to 1976, when Ken Russell's film adaptation of Tommy took the world by storm, and turned lead vocalist Roger Daltrey into a heartthrob for teenyboppers everywhere. During this short window, three-fourths of the band would somehow also find the time to make solo statements, each with varying degrees of success, while Pete would bleed onto the page with confessional works like The Who By Numbers.

Brace yourselves for Maximum Discography, as this episode touches on the albums Quadrophenia, Odds & Sods, Two Sides of the Moon, Mad Dog, Ride a Rock Horse, The Who By Numbers, One of the Boys, and even a few soundtrack appearances!
