Relieve the release of this classic rock opera

Relive the rock opera about the battle between mods and rockers.

It was on this day (25th Oct) when The Who released their classic album Quadrophenia in 1973.

Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon and John Entwistle take us through their grand tale.

Their sixth album follows a young mod called Jimmy as he tries to find his place in the world.

It came out after the band had huge success with another rock opera album - Tommy.
