Members of Yes, King Crimson, Deep Purple, Cream, MC5 Featured on The Who All-Star Tribute

Iggy Pop, Sweet, Todd Rundgren, and The Raveonettes along with members of Yes, Deep Purple, Cream, King Crimson, Mountain, MC5, and more are featured on a new tribute album to The Who. As the legendary rock group near their 50th anniversary, this venerable lineup of artists come together on a celebration of the band’s catalogue, titled Who Are You: An All-Star Tribute to The Who.

The album features several unique pairings including K.K. Downing (Judas Priest) with John Wetton (Asia) and Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) on the album’s opening track, “Eminence Front.” Elsewhere, the album serves up a punk-infused version of “My Generation” with Knox (The Vibrators), Dave Davies (The Kinks), Rat Scabies (The Damned), while country superstar Gretchen Wilson offers a version of “Who Are You” with legendary Canadian musician Randy Bachman (BTO, The Guess Who) on guitar.

Who Are You: An All-Star Tribute to The Who comes out on October 2 via Cleopatra Records. Check out the full tracklisting below.
