The Who without Keith Moon and John Entwhistle are not The Who. Thus, THE WHO are not playing the Super Bowl. HALF of The Who are playing the Super Bowl.
Just wanted to clear that up.
And now, some music with (among others) the REAL Who.
I have played this video before on DEAD AIR, but love it so much it gets a rerun. All that mods-on-speed dancing! Great cultural artifact, enjoy!
Keith looks about 14... in fact, by my estimation, he was only 18 or 19.
I Can't Explain - The Who (circa 1965)
Dirty Work - Steely Dan (1972)
Earworm time! This has been IN MY HEAD FOR TWO SOLID WEEKS! And then I always think of Bill Murray in Lost in Translation (three hanky alert for that clip, for those of you prone to sobbing in the middle of the day!)...
Check out Bryan's early-80s hair, very nice! Most guys who sat and watched themselves in a video-within-a-video? I'd make a nasty crack about narcissism... but this is Bryan Ferry, and as this song makes clear, he has earned the right to do whatever he wants.
More Than This - Roxy Music (1982)
More Than This - Bill Murray in Lost in Translation (2003)
