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 Band 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.

Who Are You – The Song

‘Who Are You’ is the title track on the Who’s 1978 album, Who Are You, the last album released by the group before Keith Moon’s death in September 1978. It was written by Pete Townshend and released as a double-A-sided single with the John Entwistle composition “Had Enough”, also featured on the album. The song was one of the band’s biggest hits, and has become one of the band’s signature tunes at their live shows. The piano on the track is played by Rod Argent. The lyrics of “Who Are You” were inspired by an incident Townshend experienced. After going out drinking with Steve Jones and Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols, Townshend was found in a “Soho doorway” by a policeman, who recognised him and said he would let him go if he could safely walk away.

The Question Mark – The Shape

This record has been cut into a question mark and a human head. The question mark ? (also known as interrogation point, query, or eroteme in journalism) is a punctuation mark that indicates a question or interrogative clause or phrase in many languages.
