The Who Before the Who
The Who Before the Who | Doug Sandom
1 post | 1 to read
DOUG Sandom's part in the making of the most exciting rock band in the world can never be underestimated. He joined The Who then known as The Detours as their drummer in 1962 after an unexpected meeting with Roger Daltrey on a west London street. It was a time when fires were being lit under the music scene worldwide, everything had to change and The Detours had a long way to go to become revolutionary leaders in their field. Having finally decided to write his memoirs, Doug Sandom chronicles each stage of the band's transition right up to his, Roger Daltrey's, Pete Townshend's and John Entwistle's emergence from their chrysalis as The Who. It is a punchy tale of gritty determination and ever-burning passion for music. As Pete Townshend writes in his moving Foreword 'Doug Sandom's work with our band gave me the confidence to drive the band as a writer and creative thinker . . . '

Not directly related to books, but more related to a passion that many of us share: the gift of music. I spent Friday night with 50,000 people at Fenway Park singing with The Who. Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Ringo‘s son playing drums, and a huge orchestra behind them. The concert was beyond my wildest dreams. Luckily there are videos on YouTube so I can relive the moment. 😀 If they come your way, I encourage you to experience the magic.
