    This book gets three stars instead of two ONLY because of all the great pictures, concert fliers, and hand written notes included on its pages The chapters are organized by year, which is nice, but the chapters themselves have a lot of duplicate and unnecessary information They begin w a 2 page summary of what took place that year, then list specific chronological dates and events many of which are also included in the summary Every concert they ever played is listed with the city, name This book gets three stars instead of two ONLY because of all the great pictures, concert fliers, and hand written notes included on its pages The chapters are organized by year, which is nice, but the chapters themselves have a lot of duplicate and unnecessary information They begin w a 2 page summary of what took place that year, then list specific chronological dates and events many of which are also included in the summary Every concert they ever played is listed with the city, name of the venue, address of the venue, and what time they went on stage Every TV show is listed in the same fashion, including pre recorded at 11 00 11 50am, aired in the evening at 6 30 6 47 That may not sound so bad, but when you consider the number of concerts TV appearances they did, you can see how it would get annoying Even radio interviews are listed w the same abundance of information It s complete overkill But you can t simply skip over those listings either, because other information is included such as what was SAID during those interviews, which isentertaining than what time they arrived at the radio station However, there are also plenty of interesting facts and stories about the band s experiences and individual personalities as well I really enjoyed reading about the early years when they were playing weddings bingo halls It was also cool to read about the other musicians they worked with in the later years I especially liked the story about Pete seeing Jimi Hendrix for the first time, and John having a drink w a piano player who was angry w his band because they would not let him sing who turned out to be Elton John Any Who fan will enjoy the book, but probably get a little annoyed with it at times

    QWell, you d have to be an outrageous fan of The Who to want to read every word of this chronicle of all of their live performances and other activities.Of course my favorite is November 22, 1967, the day The Who came to play at my high school True story I was there Second row.

    Review from here Essential reading for the fan as they say Anyway Anyhow Anywhere The Complete Chronicle of the Who by Andy Neill and Matt Kent Virgin Books, 2007 485 pages.This is a tome, but in a good way On putting it down I was left with the feeling that little was left to be said The people who were there can write what they saw and thought and felt, but as a record of what s on the record what the band did, where they went, what they recorded, who they played with, that kind of s Review from here Essential reading for the fan as they say Anyway Anyhow Anywhere The Complete Chronicle of the Who by Andy Neill and Matt Kent Virgin Books, 2007 485 pages.This is a tome, but in a good way On putting it down I was left with the feeling that little was left to be said The people who were there can write what they saw and thought and felt, but as a record of what s on the record what the band did, where they went, what they recorded, who they played with, that kind of stuff this is unlikely to be replaced, except perhaps by a later edition of itself.Whether you want to know all that, well The main feeling I was left with on putting it down was sadness at what happened to Moon This is partly because the book takes his death, roughly coinciding with the release of Who Are You, as the end of the chronicle, but it is also because his escapades take up a disproportionate amount of the book The authors are not unduly fascinated by the escapades they just take a lot of pages to outline Moon clearly desperately needed to be loved, watched, laughed at And the times when that was not happening were so unbearable that nothing could fill the gap, not even horse tranquillisers His anxiety and insecurity must have been towering They killed him at 32, overweight, worn down by his own excess An overdose of a drug designed to fight the craving for alcohol killed him He would have lasted longer had he just kept drinking even if he was taking champagne, brandy and amphetamines for breakfast He was supposed to take one, to a maximum of three per day, to still his cravings for alcohol When they found him six had dissolved in his stomach at once, killing him There werethan twenty others still undissolvedThe book deals with all these big stories by being plain It lays out the facts pretty baldly A few opinions are put forward here and there, but rarely If you re interested in the band, or in classic rock of the 60s and 70s, it is an interesting read, encyclopaedic In a quite way it fights the glory that is stupidly heaped upon the likes of Moon, Winehouse and Cobain and so many others Just by telling it plainly

    Andrew pretty much got it down, a lot of biographies are hard to trust But nothing in here sounded the alarms for wut the to the internet Because some biographies have made me prove them wrong before.

    I remember seeing this one in Barnes and Noble and oooing and ahhhing over it until I got it for my birthday It is a huge book, which is currently sitting on the bottom of a stack in my bookshelf Much like the concert file book, it isn t really a cover to cover read.
