Read full description of the books Pete Townshend's Tommy:I've seen the Broadway musical The Who's Tommy three times, the most I've ever seen a single show (although Rent and Spring Awakening might be catching up soon). This book is a great companion to the musical, as it follows the progression of taking The Who's original music and turning it into a hit Broadway show.
The book is filled with a lot of photos of the band, behind-the-scenes shots of the original Broadway cast rehearsing the show, and production photos of the musical on stage. As with most Broadway musical books, this contains the full libretto of the musical. A bonus to this gorgeous hardcover is a CD single of the original song written specifically for the musical by Pete Townsend called "I Believe My Own Eyes".
TOMMY: The Musical is a must-have for any fan of this rock opera.
Read information about the authorPete Townshend (born Peter Dennis Blandford Townshend), is an award-winning English rock guitarist, singer, songwriter, composer, and writer.
Townshend made his name as the guitarist and principal songwriter for rock band The Who. His career with them spans more than 40 years, during which time the band grew to be considered one of the greatest and most influential rock bands of all time, in addition to being "possibly the greatest live band ever." Townshend is the primary songwriter for the group, writing well over 100 songs for the band's eleven studio albums, including the rock operas Tommy and Quadrophenia, plus dozens more that appeared as non-album singles, bonus tracks on reissues, and tracks on rarities compilations such as Odds and Sods. He has also written over 100 songs for his solo albums and rarities compilations. Although known mainly for being a guitarist, he is also an accomplished singer and keyboard player, and has played many other instruments on his solo albums, and on some Who albums (such as banjo, accordian, synthesizer, piano, bass guitar, drums).
Townshend has also written newspaper and magazine articles, book reviews, essays, books, and scripts.
