From the makers of acclaimed documentary films 'Riding Giants' and 'Dogtown And Z-Boys' comes "Amazing Journey: The Story Of The Who," the authorized portrait of the defining live act in popular music history, told in their own words.
Discover in this two disc DVD set how four diverse Londoners - Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon - combined to create their own style of rock music, built a dedicated fan base the world over, and how The Who has survived at the top for over forty amazing years.
Crammed with masses of never-seen-before footage, rare concert performances, and exclusive interviews in which the band and those close to the band share their thoughts and memories of The Who, their music, and their history.
From their roots as a 1960s pub cover band, through all the fascinating ups and downs, twists and turns, stops and starts, successes and failures, follow them as they evolve through four decades of rock.
* Four individual mini films on each band member's musical brilliance, as examined by the rest of The Who and their musical contemporaries
* 'Who Art You?' - takes the viewer from Ealing Art School, through the bullseye and mod look, into the Pop Art movements, and relates how The Who became a band as visual as they were musical
* 'Who's Back' - in 2003, legendary film-maker D.A. Pennebaker (Monterery Pop Don't Look Back) was allowed to film The Who recording in the studio the hit song Real Good Looking Boy.
Additional DVD Bonuses
* The Scrapbook - out-takes for the fans from Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who, covering in depth the tragic 1979 concert at Cincinnati, a legal battle, Peter Townshend on writing Won't Get Fooled Again, and more.
* The High Numbers at the Railway Hotel - the long-lost film shot in 1964 by managers Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert of the band's Railway Hotel performance. This is the earliest performance footage known to exist on film of The Who, or the High Numbers as they were then called.
