The members of The Who toured solo during the early-mid 1990s and even put out an album or two. the
90’s also saw the addition of Zak Starkey (Ringo Starr’s son) on drums. It wasn’t until 1996 that the band
got back together to play Quadrophenia live. They played the complete album live with video projected onto
a giant screen behind the band interspersed between the songs to serve as the narrative in telling the story
of Jimmy. Pete played acoustic guitar while his brother Simon played lead guitar. Many additional musi-
cians were used to provide the complete sound needed to give Quad its just due. The boys played Quad for
two years and took a break until late 1999 when they were hired to play a software company’s big bash.
The software turned out to be bogus, but it returned The Who to a 5 piece band with Pete back on lead
guitar. The Who were once again hailed as the greatest live band.
