The Who Grabs Grammy Nomination For 'Amazing Journey'

'Amazing Journey: The Story Of The Who' - the definitive, four decade-spanning film of rock legends The Who - has garnered a Grammy nomination in the “Best Long Form Music Video” category (the Grammy telecast is Sunday, February 8th).

Roger Daltrey is quoted: “Although I have thus far chosen not to see The Amazing Journey - because it is about our lives - it has become apparent to me by the nature of the feedback from the people that have, that the film makers seem to have captured those special relationships that exist between artists in a pressurised environment in an insightful and penetrating way. I would like to congratulate them on their Grammy nomination and wish them the best of luck. Who knows!! I might even have to give it a look.”

Amazing Journey: The Story Of The Who - released November 2007; produced by Spitfire Pictures’ Nigel Sinclair and Trinifold‘s Robert Rosenberg, with executive producer Bill Curbishley and directed by Murray Lerner and Paul Crowder--relives their epic journey from humble beginnings to their meteoric rise to rock legend status.

With full participation from band members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend as well as music icons Sting, The Edge of U2, Eddie Vedder and more, the story also features electrifying rare and unreleased concert footage in digitally remixed 5.1 surround sound. Amazing Journey: The Story Of The Who is available now on iTunes and DVD [Universal].

Also, in further recognition of their achievement in music and a lifetime contribution to American culture through the performing arts, The Who, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are honored at the 31st annual Kennedy Center Honors on a broadcast to be aired Tuesday, December 30th on CBS at 9 PM (ET/PT).

Earlier this year, Spitfire Pictures and Trinfold also produced the critically acclaimed live concert film The Who at Kilburn: 1977 which was released via Image Entertainment.
