"Quadrophenia". What can I say? I was late coming to The Who. I won tickets, while I was in high school, to see the home-town premiere of "Tommy" the motion picture. The Stockton Theatre, Stockton, California, 1975. I was 17. I won tickets from my favorite radio station, KJOY, wow! by phone while getting ready to go to school one morning. I was the fifth caller (or whatever). My best friend Brenda and I got super-stoned on a couple of joints of local homegrown and went to see "the premiere". It was like nothing I'd ever seen before. Jesus, did you see Tina Turner? F'ng intense! I was an instant Who fan, for life. "Quadraphenia"? Was something special. I thought it was written for me; a sound track to help me deal with my teen-aged life; to manuever through the rocky shoals of teenhood and early adult-hood. Bless you Pete Townshend. When I read that a movie was made, I checked my local paper daily for a local release date. When I found a listing in my local paper, I cried. Yeah, I cried because this album meant so much to me. I saw it 3 times in the week that it played in Stockton, again at the Stockton Theatre. This album is brilliant. It helped me through so many bad times. Listen and learn, learn to love your life and learn to love the genius of Pete Townshend.
