They were outstanding each by each, and the were fantastic as a band. It's hard to say such an influential song like my generation.

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.

The best live album ever, one of the best rock albums ever and two rock operas. What's not to like.

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.

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.
