The Who is an English rock band formed in 1964. Their most famous lineup was composed of songwriter/guitarist Pete Townshend, singer Roger Daltrey, bassist/songwriter John Entwistle, and drummer Keith Moon. The Who first came to prominence in the 1960s and grew to be considered one of the greatest and most influential rock bands of all time, in addition to being "possibly the greatest live band ever."
Keith Moon died in 1978, after which the band released two more studio albums, Face Dances and It's Hard, with drummer Kenney Jones, before officially disbanding in 1983. They reformed on several occasions to perform, mostly without Kenney Jones, but recorded little new studio material. In 2000, the three remaining members began to discuss the possibility of recording an album of new material, but Entwistle died in 2002, which temporarily dogged any plans to record. The two remaining members, Townshend and Daltrey, continue to perform as The Who. Their most recent studio album, Endless Wire, was released in 2006.
From mod rockers to rock operas to hard rock, The Who reigned triumphant as prime contenders, in the minds of many, for the title of World's Greatest Rock Band. - The Who's display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
