Townshend: Quadrophenia Was The Last Great Who Record
Pete speaks at the launch of reissue the band's classic rock opera
Townshend was taking part in a Q&A at the Bush Hall in London to launch the reissue of Quadrophenia, which is released on Monday, when he revealed that he believed that his band had only made three really important albums.
The NME reports that Townshend said: "I would say we only made three landmark records. 'Tommy', 'Who's Next' and 'Quadrophenia'.
"I've always felt that 'Quadrophenia' was the last definitive Who album. I've always regarded it as a very ambitious album, but what got away was the story."
He later went on to add: "To me, it felt to me like it was the end. The reason I've spent so much time working on this new edition is because it's an epochal record, the last great album by The Who."
