Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren cover The Who


The Who

So, that Fleetwood Mac tribute LP may have proven a touch too ‘modern’ for diehard fans’ tastes, but fear not, because a far less controversial artist roster has aligned to pay homage to that other most classic of rock bands, The Who, as part of a new covers compilation titled ‘Who You Are’.

Set for release on 2 Oct, it features Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren, The Kinks’ Dave Davies, Rick Wakeman, Judas Priest’s KK Downing and comparative youngbloods The Raveonettes
