The Daily Cut: The Who “Eminence Front”

The Who: “Eminence Front”

ALBUM: It’s Hard

YEAR: 1982

WRITER: Pete Townshend

Peaked at number-five on Billboard‘s Top Rock Tracks chart and number-68 on the Hot 100.

It’s Hard was the second Who album Kenney Jones played drums on after taking over for the late Keith Moon in 1978. He recalls the classic cut from that album “Eminence Front.” “I was very excited when Pete played me a demo of this song, because it was different, really, to anything The Who had done before. I thought, ‘Wow, now this is up my street.’ I had a great time with it. Not ony did I enjoy recording it, but I used to love to play it on stage.”

Former Who, Faces and Small Faces drummer Kenney Jones celebrates his 68th birthday today (September 16th).
