“It’s a lot of fun to watch, and it's sort of the first rock movie that was made by a fan. Jeff Stein wasn’t really a director at the time; he was just a guy who loved The Who. He got together all this footage of the band and turned it into something pretty brilliant. It predates so many things we see nowadays with people making films on Kickstarter.
“The footage is amazing. The performance of Won’t Get Fooled Again – I don't know how much coke Pete Townshend was on, but it worked. It looked as if he was ready to come out of his body. He's totally possessed.”
Alternate: Quadrophenia (1979)
“A terrific movie that's kind of the opposite of The Kids Are Alright in that it uses the music to tell a story. The Who aren’t even in it, but it’s still great.”
