The Who 1975 [source: Wikipedia]

Welcome, my friends, to the very first installment of the anxiously awaited WhoTest™ collection. We made it!

Not to state the obvious, but we were long overdue in diving into the songbook of the British band many fans and critics hail as one of the most influential musical groups of the entire 20th century.

The Who – that is, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon – have sold more than 100 million records internationally. The band is also widely celebrated for their development of the “rock opera” concept (think Tommy and Quadrophenia). The Who’s powerful live performances in the late-’60s and ’70s helped forge the band’s reputation as one of the greatest rock acts of all time.

The WhoTest™ Vol. 1 – Name That Tune

Welcome to the very first installment of the anxiously awaited WhoTest™ collection. Not to state the obvious, but we were long overdue in diving into the songbook of the British band many fans and critics hail as one of the most influential groups of the entire 20th century.

To pass this first volume of the WhoTest™, you’ll need to be intimately familiar with the band’s most cherished albums, like Tommy (1969), Who’s Next (1971), Quadrophenia (1973) and The Who By Numbers (1975).

Good luck. Now roll up your sleeves, and show what you know!
