The problem for me, still today, is that I write purely with one dramatic structure and that is the rite of passage. I`m not really skilled in any other. Rock and roll itself can be described as music to accompany the rite of passage.

 

It wasn`t just about flashing lights and pinball machines blowing up and things like that. It was about using encores, bringing back the good songs and using techniques that I knew about from rock performance.

 

The Who were voted the 29th Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artists of all time by Rolling Stone.

 

The TV series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000) and its spin-offs "CSI: Miami" (2002) and "CSI: NY" (2004) all use songs by Townshend/The Who as their theme songs: "Who are you", "Won't Get Fooled Again" and "Baba O'Riley".
