The BBC has produced a fantastic documentary. Obviously, my favourite sections deal with Pete Townshend . Here Pete explains what the attraction of the electric guitar was to the bands of the 60s. How The Who found their sound, and how art school influenced what it meant to Pete: much more than just an instrument to play on.
The man who made his name smashing guitars on stage here argues for the guitar as an instrument of the salon. Pete Townshend sings the praises of the guitar as the most personal, intimate and companionable of instruments.
