: :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
: Come on Voodoo, the Who were big time in the 60s and 70s. Maybe you did not care for them but they were BIG! They were much above what one would call "average".
Just because they were big time does not make them great. The Spice Girls are big time, Janet Jackson has been big time for Years, are they great? Regardless. the point was that the Who is not near the level of the bands that make up the top 5 or 6 best ever. They might be leading the pack with other bands like cream or the Jefferson Airplane or the Yardbirds or Faces. But all of those bands lacked duration and great music trhoughotu much of thier existance. Either they faded out or they just didn't last. Yes, the who lasted for a while but the were really resting on their laurels and they only really peeked for 2 or 3 years.
But your right, I don't much care for the who, so I don't listen to them much if at all, and that does influence my opinion.
