Additional information about this, The Who vinyl art.

The Who – The Artist

The Who are an English rock band formed in London in 1964. Their classic line-up consisted of lead singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist and singer Pete Townshend, bass guitarist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon. They are considered one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century, selling over 100 million records worldwide. The Who developed from an earlier group, the Detours, and established themselves as part of the pop art and mod movements, featuring auto-destructive art by destroying guitars and drums on stage. Their first single as the Who, “I Can’t Explain”, reached the UK top ten, and was followed by a string of singles including “My Generation”, “Substitute” and “Happy Jack”. The group’s fourth album, 1969’s rock opera Tommy, included the single “Pinball Wizard” and was a critical and commercial success.

Long Live Rock – The Song

‘Long Live Rock’ is a 1979 single by The Who, written by Pete Townshend and recorded in 1972. A different version of the song was performed by Billy Fury’s character in the film That’ll Be the Day (a film which featured Who drummer Keith Moon). The original Who recording of the song was not released until the 1974 rarities album Odds & Sods. It was subsequently released as a single in 1979.

The Fender Stratocaster Guitar – The Shape

This record has been cut into a silhouette of Pete Townshends signature guitar the Fender Stratocaster. The Fender Stratocaster is a model of electric guitar designed in 1954 by Leo Fender, Bill Carson, George Fullerton, and Freddie Tavares. The Fender Musical Instruments Corporation has continuously manufactured the Stratocaster from 1954 to the present. It is a double-cutaway guitar, with an extended top “horn” shape for balance. Along with the Gibson Les Paul and Fender Telecaster, it is one of the most-often emulated electric guitar shapes. “Stratocaster” and “Strat” are trademark terms belonging to Fender. 

Peter Dennis Blandford Townshend (born 1945) is an English musician. He is the co-founder, guitarist, second lead vocalist and principal songwriter of the Who, one of the most influential rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s. His aggressive playing style and poetic songwriting techniques, with the Who and in other projects, have earned him critical acclaim.
