The Detours
THE WHO: Part 2

Making the Scene

It’s early 1962 and Pete Townshend finally gets his audition with The Detours. Soon after three quarters of The Who play their first gig together on the scene. The band would morph and evolve over the next 2 years as they honed their skills and sound, with players coming and going. The burgeoning London club scene was spawning great music and in this episode we hear music from the Beatles, the Stones and Eric Clapton and the Yardbirds.
