At 5am on Sunday, August 17th, The Who took the stage at Woodstock and played their rock opera “Tommy”, the story of a deaf, mute, and blind boy who becomes a master pinball player and cult figurehead. Their performance became one of the highlights of the music festival and the band went on to make this movie version of that album. The Who’s Roger Daltrey portrays Tommy, and he’s joined by his bandmates and other music legends like Elton John, Tina Turner, and Eric Clapton.
