Lambert & Stamp

This is a documentary about Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp, the managers of the British rock band The Who. Roger Daltrey calls them “the fifth and sixth members of the Who”. It all started with their plan to make a film about the British rock scene. The year is 1963 and Lambert and Stamp see The Who (then called The High Numbers) playing at a hotel in London. Lambert and Stamp is an overview of their careers and their lives. The Who were together from 1964 to 1982 (Keith Moon died in 1978 at 32). Their most famous album is the rock opera Tommy. And we remember videos of Townshend breaking his guitars during concerts. The film interviewed Chris Stamp before he died in 2012. There are also interviews with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey.  Although it is an interesting film, I would have liked to hear more music. The music is a soundtrack playing in the background during the interviews. I would have liked to hear more. As for the film Tommy, we only see the trailer. Those who wanted to hear their hits will be disappointed.
