I love the Who- My Dad got me into them via the Who Sellout album, and then I heard the live version of Wont get fooled again and I was hooked- they were supposed to tour here back in 95 and a girlfriend and I were all set for the show and then it was cancelled- such a bummer.........

Absolutly! Oh yes- I love the Who! I love Roger*. Only performance I have been able to catch was Live-Aid, Wembly Stadium-AWESome! **Bono** was in a trance like state when they where on! Babba O'Riley! I hope they come to Florida!

Quadrophenia was my teenage-angst album (for most people my age it was Nevermind). I also got drunk for the first time listening to it...yay me, I'm such a lush.

Oddly enough, I like them, grew up listening to them in the 70's and am going to see them July 26th for the first time, but, I wouldn't call myself a Who "fan". I guess I would have to almost love them as much as U2 and follow them as much to be considered a "fan". I'm looking forward to seeing them, but don't consider myself a fan, if any of this makes any sense....

Who's Next, the 16-song version. It's one of the very best albums ever.

Adam: Look guys, I got a Springfield spoon for my spoon collection.
Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

I saw them on the same tour where the kids got stampeded to death but not the same show.

The Kids are Alright soundtrack is good. Of course Tommy, Quad and Who's Next and Live at Leeds are good but don't ignore Who by Numbers and Who Are You. At the time it came out, I loved the song (Goodbye)Sister Disco because it sounded like a statement against the stupid disco/dance crap that dominated the airwaves at the time (and you think the popular music now sucks) Of course The Who Sell Out and Magic Bus are good, and even Face Dances in the 80's. I don't think man will argue that 70's Who is the best(Tommy was 1969 though) If anyone gets the chance to see Tommy the original movie starring Roger as Tommy, do it! It's kind of twisted, but a real cult classic, and Roger was hot!

Tommy
Who's next
Quadrophenia
My Generation

Those would be the 4 I would start with. The other stuff is great too, but these are the most accessible.
Of Course Live At Leeds is a must as well. Aww heck, By them ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
