SUNDAY SONG SELECTION FOR SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2012: 'MY GENERATION' BY THE WHO
'My Generation' is a classic in the world of rock music. My favorite performance of 'My Generation' comes from the 1967 set The Who did on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. If you know nothing about The Who and 'My Generation; then what you should know is that the band would end the song with some instrument destruction. The fans loved it and The Who decided to add some smoke and flashes to the routine for a more awe-inspiring moment. For this performance, Keith Moon, the band's legendary drummer, added explosives to his drum kit and the result landed the band in rock and roll infamy. This is fantastic stuff, folks. Enjoy.
