This band is living proof that rock will never die.
In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will be releasing two documentary films "on seminal British rock band The Who."
The two documentaries in question are Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who and Amazing Journey: Six Quick Ones which will be coming to DVD November 6.
The acquisition of these titles came about because Universal Studios Home Entertainment president, Craig Kornblau, is a big fan of the group.
"On a personal level, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to help bring the definitive documentary of this legendary band to home entertainment audiences," stated Kornblau. "As they did for anyone growing up in the 1960s and '70s, songs like 'My Generation,' 'Baba O'Riley' and 'Won't Get Fooled Again' served as anthems of my youth."
Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who and Amazing Journey: Six Quick Ones were put together "as complementary pieces of work, one for a wide audience and one for the diehard rock fan. Musical guests commenting on the influence of the Who include such rock 'n' roll luminaries as Sting, the Edge, Eddie Vedder and Noel Gallagher."
In Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who, we follow "the history of the band through never-before-seen interviews with surviving band members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, rare and recently discovered concert footage, artist profiles and more."
The second movie, Amazing Journey: Six Quick Ones, showcases "four segments on the musical abilities of band members Townshend, Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon. A fifth part, 'Who Art You'; explores the Mod culture that spawned the band's visuals, while segment six, 'Who's Back,' chronicles the 2003 recording of 'Real Good Looking Boy,' the Who's first new studio recording in more than 20 years."
Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who and Amazing Journey: Six Quick Ones are going to "be released in one two-disc set that also includes a companion book and bonus content. Extras include a video scrapbook showcasing a dinner with Moon; the tragic 1979 Cincinnati concert in which 11 fans were crushed to death in a rush to get into the Riverfront Coliseum; and the celebrated 2000 Royal Albert Hall concert, in which the Who were joined by such guest musicians as Bryan Adams and Vedder in a benefit for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Also included is the earliest known footage of the band, filmed in 1964 at the Railway Hotel when they were known as the High Numbers."
