The Who Honored By Foos And Pearl Jam
The annual event pays tribute to bands who have influenced the sound of rock music. Other groups including The Flaming Lips, Incubus and Tenacious D were also present at the event in Los Angeles to pay tribute to the British music legends.
Actor/singer Jack Black showed his admiration for the My Generation hit-makers before his performance, saying, "It's an honor to honor what I consider to be the greatest band of all time. Wanna know why they were the greatest? Because they were the first ones to really rock hard."
Celebrity guests such as actors David Duchovny, Mila Kunis and Adam Sandler were on hand to introduce the acts, who covered their favorite The Who tracks. The band themselves closed the special concert at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion with some of their greatest hits.
Frontman Roger Daltrey says, "I have had a life of absolute privilege and wonder. How could it ever be bittersweet? I miss old friends, but they are with me. When we start playing our music, John (Entwistle) and Keith (Moon) echo with us all the time, so it's kind of like they never left."
