Musicologistblog’s live performance of the day is none other than The Who. The Who ‘s front man Roger Daltry and guitarist Pete Townshend sang a few of their iconic songs, including “My Generation”, which is the live performance of the day. This is in honor of The Who and is a reflection of thier performance at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic games held in London, which was nothing more than awesome.
