Show Revue: The Who Hits 50! At Barclays Center

If you asked me who the most influential bands of my life were, The Who would be at the top of that list.  I never really identified with Led Zeppelin’s music or was a Deadhead, but from a young age, I loved the music of The Who.  Since I’m a bit younger than the old school Who fans, I’ve only […]
