The Friday OT: The Who; Won’t get fooled again

Footage from the we-record-live gig The Who put on at Shepperton Studios in London, May 2th 1978.

This gig was also the last time Keith Moon played with The Who (he died September 7th that same year). As you’re about to see, he, Daltrey, Townshend and Entwistle were on their very top form that day. Some bands are better in the studio than on stage, but not The Who. They were (are) the exact opposite, laying their standard tracks down on an album then bringing them to their maximum expression in front of an audience. The above is a prime example, awe-inspiring rock performance.
