Happy Birthday today (May 19) to Pete Townshend. The guitarist is 72. Also celebrating today is bassist Dusty Hill of ZZ Top (68) and drummer Phil Rudd of AC/DC (63). In Remembrance today, Joey Ramone would have been 66.

The Who formed out of London, England in 1964 with the classic lineup featuring Pete Townshend on guitar, Roger Daltrey on vocals, bassist John Entwistle, and drummer Keith Moon. They are considered to be on of the most influential rock bands of all time, with over 100 million records sold worldwide. Townshend has had a successful solo career, in addition to his work with The Who. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with The Who in 1990. The band continues to celebrate their 50th anniversary with The Who Hits 50! tour which kicked off back in 2014.

The Who will play some area dates in July. If you are up for a road trip, check out tour dates here.
