Overview

Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere: The Complete Chronicle of The Who 1958-1978 recounts the daily activities of The Who, from their first stirrings as The Detours to their groundbreaking, earth-shattering work in the 1970s to the untimely death of the band's explosive drummer, Keith Moon.

Organized by year, Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere presents in diary fashion exactly what The Who were doing, where they were doing it, and with whom. Exhaustive appendices detail concert tours, radio and TV gigs, recording sessions, record releases (including U.K. and U.S. variations), and solo activities. And the unique collection of rare photographs and memorabilia puts the reader in the front row for one of the greatest rock acts ever to swagger onstage.

With a foreword by Roger Daltrey and former manager Chris Stamp, written by veteran by Who biographers Andy Neill and Matt Kent, and illustrated with more than 650 black-and-white and full-color illustrations, this volume is the most dynamic, accurate, and informative account of The Who's wild, unforgettable ride ever assembled.

About the Authors
Andy Neill heard his first Who record in 1971 and has yet to fully recover. His knowledge of The Who inspired A Fortnight of Furore -- a privately published account of the group's notorious Australasian tour -- and afforded him the opportunity to pen the liner notes to the historically important BBC Sessions anthology. As a freelance author, he has written extensively about popular music, including regular contributions to such globally distributed publications as Record Collector and Mojo. He co-wrote, with Terry Rawlings and Keith Badman, Good Times Bad Times: The Definitive Diary of the Rolling Stones, and has assisted with several other best-selling rock biographies. Additionally, Andy is a keen historian of music in film and on television, acting as archive consultant to the U.K. Channel 4 documentaries Hellraisers, The Real Keith Moon, and The Real John Lennon.

Matt Kent first saw The Who in 1971 and was instantly hooked. After witnessing their awesome power, he decided that there was only one career path for him to follow but went on to train as a civil engineer instead. As one of the organizers of Who conventions in the United Kingdom, Kent went on (along with Mark Donovan) to found the Who fan club Naked Eye. Additionally, he has contributed to many of the recent reissues of the band's back catalogue and has provided notes for recent Who concert programmes. Kent has also helped out with research for television and book projects about the band, including the Keith Moon biography Dear Boy, VH1's Legends, and Classic Albums-Who's Next. He currently works for Pete Townshend, managing his websites. In between, Matt tries to have a life.

Read an Excerpt

Foreword by Roger Daltrey

It never ceases to amaze me how four young prats (aren't we all at that age?) with such diverse personalities ever came to be in the same band. To make matters worse, we were four megalomaniacs, with all the traumas, insecurities, and paranoia that make adolescence such a joy. Looking back on those years, what is so amazing, here at the pinnacle of our decline, is that the bond that connects us is stronger than ever. I always knew it was special. This was brought home to me when I was sacked from the band in 1965. It was then that I realised that this was the most important thing in my life. I've actually had it proven to me that music conquers all!

The Who were quirky from the start. The Beatles and the Stones were much more broad based, but we were individual, in a league of our own -- distinctly British. We were the bloke's band and thank God for that because they've stuck with us. They identified with the songs that Pete was writing from a bloke's perspective. He was obviously making contact at a very deep level; it must have taken a lot of courage to write with such honesty.

We were in the spotlight, but the truth is that everyone involved with us from those early days was an important part of the jigsaw. Helmut Gorden kept us in a van for a year. Pete Meaden recognised the value of the Mod movement and got us noticed. Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp were the fifth and sixth members of the Who: Kit, with his outrageous behaviour and ideas on how to manipulate the media, and Chris, the expert in cool, menace, and scams! Their contribution to the band should never be underestimated, and neither should the input of our manager since the 1970s, Bill Curbishley.

One of my greatest frustrations with the Who was that we never really achieved our full potential in recorded sound. We had the songs, we had the talent -- but our sound was too big for the grooves! If only 5.1 sound had been around in those days. It hasn't all been a bed of roses. We took casualties. Keith Moon's death cast a giant shadow. What made it worse was that somehow we were expecting it. He was our funny bone and, as Pete has said, our alter ego. Although not here in body, his spirit still lives on in everything we do. Kit Lambert's slow death through drugs and alcohol left a creative void, especially as far as Pete is concerned, which is very difficult to fill.

With all the shit that went down in the early years (and occasionally the latter ones!), for me, I'm never as happy in my life as I am when the Who are working. It's the ultimate highlight; the inner feeling of purpose, struggle, success, and failure -- all these things rolled into one. My other careers I enjoy, but it could never be the same. Maybe that's why I like acting so much, because I go from one production to another searching for another Who -- but of course there isn't one.

A great deal of misinformed rubbish has been written about the Who. Yes, we had our differences -- and still have. But it's the differences that make it work. Thanks to Andy and Matt for making the effort to get it down as accurately and in as much detail as possible, talking to all the people that matter while we're all still here and before senility sets in. A lot of it I didn't know, a lot of it I've forgotten, but most of it reminds me just why the Who are the best fucking rock 'n' roll band in the world.

    Glorious Who

    This is, I believe, the bible for all Who fans. It's about time The Who got their story told like this. Everything about the book is fantastic, layout, photos etc. This book can easily turn anyone on to The Who - simply the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world. You'd better buy it.
