Fifty Years of The Who by Colin Jones

London's Proud Galleries opens with a new exhibition this month, featuring a retrospective by photographer Colin Jones of iconic British band The Who. Whilst photographing the group, Jones built up a friendship with the band, gaining unlimited access to them on the road, backstage and at home.

In a series of intimate shots, Jones captures Keith Moon thrashing riotously at his drums, Pete Townshend sitting in front of the guitars he destroyed while performing and a candid shot of John Entwistle practising the guitar whilst his mother darns his socks.
