29 Years Ago: The Who Announce Breakup

The Who were undoubtedly one of the most innovative and important hard rock bands of all time. Ranging from psychedelic pop rock material like 'I Can See For Miles' and 'Pinball Wizard' all the way through epic arena rock classics like 'Won't Get Fooled Again' and 'Who Are You,' they virtually single-handedly perfected both the concept album and the rock opera. But the latter part of the decade was unkind to the group, who experienced a series of misfortunes leading into the early part of the '80s. On Dec. 16, 1983, guitarist Pete Townshend announced that he was leaving the Who, effectively ending the group.
