I've decided to try (and sometimes failing) and do a daily update of some of the events in Who history (if of course there are any recorded events!) leading up to the 50th anniversary of the release of 'I Can't Explain' on January 15th 2015.

I would have considered the band's 50th to be when Keith joined in April 1964 but it looks like The Who have chosen next year to celebrate the event and so it seems apt to pick on the release of the band's first single! I'm only keeping it as a one page site so only the relevant days entry will appear - so visit regularly to keep up to date smiley I'll also post current news items up.

Thank you for all your kind emails, I appreciate it. I will get around to replying to them all. Matt

April 3

On this day in:

2014 - The Who posted the following on their Facebook page: "50 YEARS OF THE WHO To start our celebration of 50 years of The Who we're going to be posting daily what they were up to exactly 50 years ago today. We'll run this feature up until 15 January 2015, the fiftieth anniversary of the UK release of 'I Can't Explain'. So to start the ball rolling, on 3 April 1964 the band, that is Pete, Roger, John and Doug Sandom, tonight played a gig at the Glenlyn Ballroom, Forest Hill, in south east London." That sounds familiar, what a wonderfully original idea and one I suggested to the band's management a couple of months ago. When I got no response I decided to do it here instead. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It really isn't it just shows a lack of imagination. I have to say I'm disappointed but not really surprised. I'm sure 'Anyway Anyhow Anywhere' (the book) will come in handy as great source material for them too. I'll leave it to the experts. Matt
