As far as legendary rock bands go, The Who ranks alongside the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Penning the Who's enduring rock anthems and bringing those songs to life with some of the most frenetic and destructive guitar performances ever witnessed, Pete Townshend proved that his excess matched his talent, and left in his wake bottles, syringes, groupies, and trashed hotel rooms as his band brought their music to an equally energized generation. Biographer Giuliano spills the beans on Townshend's childhood, his battles with band members during the Who's glory days as mod gods, his strange devotion to the Indian mystic Meher Baba, and the many unexpected turns his creative activities have taken in between the band's several break-ups and reunions.
