The Who in '82

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I remember when The Who released "It's Hard" in 1982. At the time, they were old folks flying in the face of punk rock. They were already old hat, but there were still a few good tracks.

 

"Athena" and "Emincence Front."

 

Probably the last time The Who mattered.

They were never my cup of tea. Back then it was ac/dc, saxon, ozzy, motorhead, sammy hagar, rush but to name a few and all rather tasty live to boot :)

I would agree it was the last of the good Who albums they were never the same after Keith Moon died. Although Pete Townshend did put out a couple of good solo albums.

I had the pleasure of seeing The Who perform "Tommy" in its entirety back in 1988 at Foxborough Stadium I believe. Great concert.

Yup. When that came out I was a kid listening to punk rock. But I heard "Eminence Front" and I thought, "The Who still have it, don't they!" :D

 

That was my thought in '82!

 

It still sounds great!

Agree, and I personally consider that "It's Hard" was the last out of a handful+2 of excellent releases that they came up within one and a half decade. Another thing.. Your thoughts in 1982 may have been messed up severely, not just because of the drugs etc. :-) but it may have been one of the years in that particular decade where "new or the first" masterpieces of certain artists was released or the last breath of the "older" generation was released! Check it out in case that you don't remember :-) A very confusing year regarding music releases and what would point towards the future of popularity of certain music genre's/style  or not :wink_face:
