Quadrophenia, post 1 of, oh, about a zillion…

One of my favorite bands is the Who.  For many reasons; I love Pete Townshend’s songs, John Entwistle was one of the top two bassists ever, and Keith Moon was THE best drummer in rock and roll history.

Quadrophenia, while not their most popular album, is the best they did, in terms of sheer virtuosity.  All four were at the top of their musical game on this album.

For the first post regarding this album, I’ll post one of the more popular songs, just for ear candy, nothing deep…

Most of you will be familiar with “The Real Me”, the second song on the album and the song that really kicks it off.

Here’s the whole song.

Now, I boosted the bass on the bridge and snipped it out.  Listen to the bass and the drum, and how well they work together (this applies to the entire song, but it’s most evident here)

As an aside, it works better if you imagine this guy playing the drums…
