Who Are You


The Who are an English rock band formed in 1964 by Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon. They became known for energetic live performances which often included instrument destruction. The Who have sold about 100 million records, and have charted 27 top forty singles in the United Kingdom and United States, as well as 17 top ten albums, with 18 Gold, 12 Platinum and 5 Multi-Platinum album awards in the United States alone.

Moon died at the age of 32 in 1978, after which the band released two studio albums, the UK and US top five Face Dances (1981) and the US top ten It’s Hard (1982), with drummer Kenney Jones, before disbanding in 1983. They re-formed at events such as Live Aid and for reunion tours such as their 25th anniversary tour (1989) and the Quadrophenia tours of 1996 and 1997. In 2000, the three surviving original members discussed recording an album of new material, but their plans temporarily stalled upon Entwistle’s death at the age of 57 in 2002. Townshend and Daltrey continue to perform as The Who, and in 2006 they released the studio album Endless Wire, which reached the top ten in the UK and US.

Has anyone besides me ever wondered why CSI: Miami and CSI: Las Vegas have The Who’s songs as their themes, but CSI: NY doesn’t? It bothers me… Anyway, my dad had a few of their albums:

Psychotic Reaction


Count Five (sometimes known as Count V) was a garage band from San Jose, California. The band consisted of Kenn Ellner, John Byrne, Roy Chaney, John Michalski and Craig Atkinson. The band then shifted genres to mostly garage style rock and roll with influences from The Yardbirds, The Beatles, The Who, and The Rolling Stones.

Their song, Psychotic Reaction, reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1966, and was selected as one of the “500 Most Influential Songs in Rock n’ Roll History” by the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Psychotic Reaction was released worldwide and gained popularity in the United Kingdom, Spain, Japan, and Mexico. Psychotic Reaction was popular in the Vietnam War era, and appears in the game Battlefield Vietnam. The song was modeled after the Yardbirds’s song “I’m a Man”, with a repetitious rhythm that eventually changes to a faster beat, an electric guitar playing a hypnotic melody going up the scales, and a similar style of percussion to that of the Yardbirds hit.
