Three masterpieces, (Who's Next, Quadrophenia, Tommy) two great albums (My Generation, The Who Sell Out), and a landmark live album. I'd say the Who are pretty damned legit.

Just as same as gtroda.

One classic album (Who's Next), a handful of cool singles, and not much else for me.

Live at Leeds is the best live album I've ever heard. It's what really pushes The Who well into my top 5 favorite bands.

From SilverWalrus 01/29/2013 05:59
Inspired me to be a musician, so obviously they're important to me. I may not listen to them as much as I used to, but every single time I come back to them I'm rewarded. I will always identify with them because they've become a part of me as a person, and are endlessly important to me.
