FlinterFile: The Who- The Seeker

In 1970, The Who had to find a way to carry on after their very successful rockopera Tommy.To describe the journey they made with the rock opera, Pete Townshend wrote the song The Seeker. He wrote the song in Florida, in a swamp, when he was drunk and getting attacked by mosquito’s. He wrote the line “I’m looking for me, you’re looking for you, we’re looking at each other and we don’t know what to do.” and the rest naturally followed. Later he said it wasn’t one of his best songs, and Roger Daltrey agreed: he thought it was pretentious. However, it did make number 44 in the US and number 19 in the UK. Enjoy
