Watchable on Amazon Prime Video this comprehensive account of their career is jam packed with never before seen footage. The nearly two hour romp through music history revolves mainly around recollections of Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, but also feature everyone from The Edge, to Paul McCartney, to Sting.
“It’s not easy to capture in film the power and energy of any rock band, especially the four characters that made up the Who, the brilliance of Pete Townshend’s music, and the magic that happened between Pete, John, Keith and myself,” Daltrey said about the documentary.
“But Who fans tell me Amazing Journey does just that,” Daltrey continued. “From the moment that Keith joined us in the Railway Hotel back in 1964, it was like a bottle of champagne being uncorked. We just clicked. And here we are, all these years later — we’ve lost our dear bandmates Keith and John, and Pete and I continue to play together and carry this story forward. Thanks to Coda for putting this show up, and enjoy this film about our journey. I’m still living it!”
