The Who

The Who is a British rock band who are mentioned in the same breath as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. They are evolved from a group called The Detours in 1964. Their lineup :
lead singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend, bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon.
Their first single " I Can't Explain" reached the top ten before a string of hits followed, including "My Generation".  Their strings of hits include "Who are You", "Pinball Wizard", I Can See For Miles", "Baba O Riley", "Won't Get Fooled Again" etc. The Who's live performances on stage have an auto-destructive mod with smashing of guitars and drums.
The group's drummer Keith Moon died on 7 Sept 1978 (drugs) aged 32 and was replaced by Kenney Jones. John Entwistle passed away in June 2002, (heart attack) aged 57.

"My Generation"
People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-g-generation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to d-dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a b-big s-s-sensation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-generation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we g-g-get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Yeah, I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby
