Emmy winning writer/director Jeff Greenstein (Desperate Housewives, Friends, Will & Grace) returns to the show for a deep dive about one of rock’s most iconic bands, The Who, and their strange 1966 LP ‘A Quick One’.
We talk about how the album was a transition from the band’s R&B beginnings to their concept album period, the influence of the Who’s unconventional managers Lambert & Stamp, why every member of the band wrote songs on this album, the mini-opera title track, the relationship between Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend and how Jeff almost had the Who appear in a TV show he wrote.
