: Excuse me Voodoo, but "THE WHO" are/never were an 'average band.' It has always been the Big Three of :Beatles, Stones, Who. Never diminish the glorious writing of Townshend, drumming of Moonie(Bottle of Brandy a Day), bass playing of Entwistle, and powerful vocals of Roger D. The Who are too talented to be labeled by insipid 'average' remarks on this message board. We are better than that.The world deserves better than that. I deserve better than that. Amen.
The who are not and never have been at the level of Dylan, the Dead, Hendrix or even the lowly Doors. They certainly are no where near the Beatles or the Stones. And at least none of the groups I mentioned had a lead figure in the band state that he was a woman, not that he wanted to be, but that he was.
Musically, the who were about as average as it got in late 60s early 70s. They were the filler between Beatles, Zeplin and Stones songs when there was no big hit to play on the radio
