The Who

David Dalton, Lenny Kaye, Rock 100, 1977

THE TEEN DREAM LIES AT THE CORE OF rock & roll and no group has explored, projected and interpreted the turbulent substances of teenage craniums with such relish and consistency as the Who, an English group that became the undisputed mod band of the mid-sixties. Mods were young working-class lads full of an incipient violence that would find it perfect expression in the performances of the Who.
