WHO'S NEXT FOR VH1 ROCK HONORS
NEW YORK, NY, March 24, 2008 - VH1 pays homage to legendary British rock band
The Who in the network's third annual "VH1 Rock Honors" celebration of
artists who now represent the pinnacle of rock music. As a result of The Who's
revolutionary and era-defining influence on rock music, this will be the first
"VH1 Rock Honors" that salutes just one band.
Taping in Los Angeles at the Pauley Pavilion on July 12, "VH1 Rock Honors"
will premiere on Thursday July 17 at 9pm on VH1, VH1 Classic and MHD. The Who's
monumental legacy will be celebrated with a 2 - hour tribute that will
salute the music and the lasting impact of this groundbreaking band. The influence
of The Who will be felt through spoken tributes, filmed packages and
performances by some of today's premiere rock acts as well as the legends
themselves. Additional performers, presenters and special guests will be announced as
they are confirmed.
"The Who's groundbreaking artistry commands a 'VH1 Rock Honors' that salutes
just them and their historic vision," said Tom Calderone, Executive Vice
President and General Manager, VH1. "Their music defined the rock era by
connecting with millions of fans, forever expanding the definition of rock and
inspiring countless bands to fulfill their own musical destinies. We are honored
to have the opportunity to celebrate Pete and Roger and The Who legacy."
Beginning with their first hit single "I Can't Explain," The Who emerged from
Mod-Era London to electrify the world with their unique sound. The music and live
performances of Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon
tore through the existing boundaries of rock. The band has recorded 11
remarkable albums, including the world's first rock opera Tommy, and the ensuing
masterwork Quadrophenia. The British legends produced some of the most
compelling and original music of the era, including the songs, "Won't Get Fooled
Again," "Pinball Wizard," "Who Are You" and the immortal "My Generation."
