Quadrophenia Immersive - Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, February 2016
The 2006 Who Convention* featured the first ever airing to an audience
of Quadrophenia as a 4 piece since The Who at Stoke in '73, which led
Simon Townshend to declare,
“What an absolutely brilliant band Who’s Who are!”
The Keith Moon Blue Plaque Reception at The Grosvenor Hotel in Mayfair,
London in 2009, saw Zak Starkey watch the entire set, completely
transfixed by the incredible authenticity and timing of bass player
Terry Wyatt; prompting Zak to single him out for the kind of praise that
only members of a rhythm section can truly understand, but coming from
someone who played with the Great John Entwistle for all those years,
reminding him of what he was once used to hearing, all the more
Drummer Paul “Moonie” Kemp bears an uncanny resemblance to the late
great Keith Moon and prides himself on complete authenticity when
drumming styles and kit specification is concerned. The kit(s) he plays
are completely identical to the original spec, all the way down to the
nuts and bolts that hold it together and represent a labour of love with
regard to sourcing and application.
He’s very close to the Moon family and is a familiar visitor for the odd
cup of tea at Kit’s house.
A complete “one off” on the live circuit, his explosive application to
the style of Keith Moon, has to be seen to be believed; there is no need
to “close your eyes” with him!
Who's Who celebrated the 40th anniversary of "Live at Leeds" in 2010,
touring extensively and performing the whole of "Tommy" to audiences in
the UK and Europe, amid critical acclaim.
Who's Who - Raw Power, Passion and Soul.
That's what defines the members that make up Who’s Who. Their longevity
and chemistry together as a unit is unchallengeable - 13 years in a
stable line-up, the longest ever for any Who type band; and from that
comes an understanding of each other as players; much like The Who
themselves. Any player will tell you that you cannot buy chemistry, and
It serves as a testament to the reputation they have worked extremely
hard to cement.
Who's Who plays to its strengths, which is its collective talent as
players and performers. The music will always comes first - there are no
wigs or "stick on" sideburns here.
As history rolls on; they have proved to be an essential ingredient to
fans of The Who and the musical legacy it's left behind.
