The Who

Tuesday, February 12, Pepsi Center, 303-830-8497. 

In 1964, drummer Keith Moon approached Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and John Entwistle about being in their band, the Who, which had been named the Detours until the outfit found out another band with that name already existed. The foursome went on to become one of the most beloved and influential bands in rock-and-roll history, one of the few older groups that influenced the punk movement. Moon's nearly superhuman prowess on the drums is well-documented, but overall, it's the band's ability to tap into uniquely English, working-class cultural experiences and translate them into a more universal expression, fused with raw, stirring, R&B-based rock music, that continues to inspire new and old fans alike. Moon and Entwistle have since passed, but if the remaining members' performance at the recent Hurricane Sandy benefit is any indication, Townshend and Daltrey still have plenty of rock left in them.
