The Who – Who Are You (music video)

This particular music video for “Who Are You” documents their recording session for the song. Here’s the set up. Moon’s got his headphones duct-taped to his head. You know, so they don’t fall off. He’s got two sound barrier walls on either side of his kit – to reduce the sound bleeding out too much, I guess. He beats those things pretty hard. Entwistle and Townshend are on either side of the sound barriers. Also with headphones, but no duct tape. Daltry is tucked away in a booth, where he’s recording the main vocals. The video has some clips of them recording the back up vocals, too. You get to see Entwistle recording harmony vocals with a cigarette in his hand. A must watch.
