  The Who Before The Who by Doug Sandom
  Doug Sandom joined The Who - then known as The Detours - as their drummer in 1962. It was a time when fires were being lit under the music scene worldwide, everything had to change and The Detours had a long way to go to become revolutionary leaders in their field. Doug has finally decided to write his memoirs. It is a punchy tale of gritty determination and ever-burning passion for music. As Pete Townshend writes in his moving foreword "Doug Sandom's work with our band gave me the confidence to drive the band as a writer and creative thinker ..."

  Doug Sandom kam 1962 als Schlagzeuger zu den Who - damals noch The Detours. Nun hat er sich entschieden, seine Memoiren zu schreiben. Ca. 150 Seiten, auf englisch, mit einem Vorwort von Pete Townshend.

  Tommy - Super Deluxe Edition Box Set (4 CD)
  Out on 11th November 2013, the set features the seminal 1969 rock opera in full 5.1 surround sound, plus a host of bonus and demo recordings all taken from The Who's and Pete Townshend's personal archives. It also includes a complete disc of unheard concert recordings, most of which were recorded at the Capital Theatre, Ottawa, in 1969, with a few from other shows on that Tommy tour. These tapes were, legendarily, all supposed to have been destroyed, so quite a find! Memorabilia include handwritten lyrics, notes, posters and unseen photos. Besides the box some CD and vinyl issues are released with parts of the material.

  Pete's Meisterwerk ist nun eine aufwändig gestalte Box mit 4 CDs, einem Poster und einem 80-seitigen Buch mit viel Fanmaterial gewidmet. Das Set enthält unter anderem viele bislang ungehörte Aufnahmen aus Pete's Band-Archiven und als besonderes Schmankerl einen Live-Mitschnitt des Tommy-Blocks von dem Konzert am 15. Oktober 1969 im Capital Theatre in Ottawa. Daneben gibt es einige CD- und Vinyl-Veröffentlichungen mit Teilen aus dem Box-Material. (VÖ 11.November 2013)

Box Disc 1: The original album, 2013 digitally remastered in HD
Box Disc 2: The demos and outtakes from Pete's archives
Box Disc 3: The complete album remixed in 5.1 surround sound on new Hi Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-Ray format
Box Disc 4: The live 'bootleg' album featuring tracks from 1969 concerts

Deluxe 2CD: edition from box discs 1 and 4

  Channel 4 Documentary
  I'm currently producing a documentary programme for Channel 4, which looks at the people of Britain and their relationship with karaoke.

I am looking for people and their exceptional stories to take part. I am hoping to find a story that tells of one person's devotion to a British artist and how they, as well as attend concerts, collect memorabilia and support their pop idol, also enjoy to sing out their favourite tracks, in order to get close to the music and experience it completely.

By using karaoke and music we would be able to hear the story of a "super fan" and gain a fun and enlightening insight in to their world. The documentary programme looks at the karaoke booth as a place to live out ambitions and dreams, or to forget about life's troubles - be it in celebration or escape, singing is a powerful tool to help us to unlock feelings about our lives and let go.

If you are interested in sharing your story, please contact Millie Bamford at OR 020 7483 6712


  Tommy Boy at CBS Watch! Magazine
  The Who’s Roger Daltrey became famous singing about his generation, but his storied career is thanks to lyrics and music that remain relevant even 40 years later. Three of the group’s biggest hits — Who Are You? Baba O’Riley and Won’t Get Fooled Again — serve as the theme songs for the three CSI series. Watch! caught up with the fabled rocker in London on the eve of The Who’s North American tour.

  Petition - Bring Back PETETOWNSHEND.COM
  In 2000, Pete Townshend launched a free personal website PETETOWNSHEND.COM, which was run out of Pete's Eel Pie Publishing office until 2006. During those years the site developed into one of the best artist websites on the internet, with a wide variety of content from Pete's personal archives which included daily diary entries, news, photos, video streams, media downloads, and biographical information.

Fans adored the site, and felt a very close connection to him through the work he did on it. On the last day of the 2007 tour, Pete left a final comment on his blog, shortly before closing it down. He told his fans that he planned on redesigning and relaunching PETETOWNSHEND.COM soon. Now Maria Niku designed a petition to let Pete know that his fans would very much like to see this happen!

  Online petition - bring back PETETOWNSHEND.COM!
