The Who's Bush Hall Quadrophenia playback streamed today
14 November 2011
To celebrate the release of Quadrophenia: The Director’s Cut deluxe edition released today, fans of The Who will be able to watch an hour long video edit featuring last Wednesday’s exclusive Quadrophenia playback recorded in Shepherd’s Bush.
The one-off event saw Pete Townshend entertain 200 select guests that included singer Roger Daltrey with a rare twenty-minute acoustic set. This followed a glorious 5.1 Quadrophonic playback of ‘The Rock’ and ‘Love Reign O’er Me’ and an hour-long question and answer session that became a roller-coaster ride through the history of the work, where The Who’s songwriter shared his thoughts and feelings on the album, stating that it was, in his mind and heart, “the last great Who album”, after 'Tommy' and 'Who's Next'.
Pete Townshend then played four songs on acoustic guitar - 'I'm One' and 'Drowned' from Quadrophenia, 'Acid Queen' from Tommy and the blues classic 'Corrina, Corrina', which he has recently recorded in aid of Amnesty International.
View the filmed session in full which is almost an hour long, hosted by Mojo Magazine’s Editor in Chief Phil Alexander from 2pm, 14th November 2011 at www.thewho.com/quadrophenia and www.facebook.com/thewho and watch a 5 minute teaser of what to expect here below:
