The Who in the Studio: The Synth is a Member of the Band
Clip: Episode 4 | 2m 41s
In this clip from Going Electric, Producer of The Who, Glyn Johns, traces the origins of Baba O’Riley to a unique synthesized rhythm pattern Peter Townsend created as the base for the song. A song that could only have come from the studio became unforgettable live and on record when juxtaposed with the explosive vocals of Roger Daltrey and the guitar, bass and drums of the band.
