A rock opera by The Who
. It tells the story of a Mod
named Jimmy and all of his misadventures. Like other Mods, Jimmy kept his hair short, wore nice clothes, rode a motor scooter, and took uppers.
Jimmy struggles with his job and homelife. He sees The Who in concert, later takes a train back to the site of a Mod vs. Rocker brawl, and discovers a shocking secret about one of his Mod idols.
Jimmy has four different personalities, hence Quadrophenia. Each is based on a member of The Who. He is a tough guy and a helpless dancer (singer Roger Daltrey), a romantic (bassist John Entwistle), a bloody lunatic (drummer Keith Moon), and a beggar and a hypocrit (guitarist Pete Townshend).
The Punk and the Godfather is an interesting track. At the beginning, Townshend can be described as the edgy Punk. However at the end, he seems to assume the role of the Godfather.
