The Who[edit]

Why is it not possible that The Who are one of the three most important British rock acts along with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones? I've heard that from many quarters for decades. They have even been regarded as The World's Greatest Rock Band, something even the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame acknowledges. The Rolling Stone line about the Holy Trinity of British Rock is certainly NOT about The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who being the "first three" or the "first wave," because MANY British rock bands pre-date The Who, including the likes of The Kinks, The Animals and The Yardbirds. So if they're not referring to a "first wave" with their Holy Trinity line, what do you think they're referring to?

Additionally, the 1992 Rolling Stone Album Guide opens The Who section with, "Ranking just below the Beatles and the Rolling Stones in the Great Triumvirate of British rock, The Who..."

I think it's pretty clear what they're saying. 72.43.153.30 (talk) 17:14, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

It's not possible because The Who are NOT one of the three most important British rock acts. They MOST CERTAINLY aren't the world's greatest rock band. Not even remotely close! Led Zeppelin were bigger, more popular, and more important IN EVERY SINGLE WAY than both The Rolling Stones and The Who. The Rolling Stone line about the Holy Trinity of British Rock most certainly IS about The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who being the first three of the first wave. The Kinks, The Animals and The Yardbirds were all formed about 1 year prior to The Who. Are you seriously suggesting they were the first wave and The Who were the second, or are you saying they were the third??? Don't be ridiculous. Those bands were important and but they didn't go out and conquer the world the way the The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who did. They are considered to be the first wave of British rock. I've already told you what the Rolling Stone article was referring to - I don't need to explain it again. You are wrong that I am wrong. All of this is completely and utterly irrelevant though. Our personal opinions mean nothing. The only thing of importance are quotes from legitimate sources. If you can find a legitimate source which says that The Who are one of the three most important British rock bands then update the article to include that comment again. If you can't then find something else. That's all there is. Kindly don't send me private messages again. I am not interested in your opinion or in having an argument with you. Thanks.
