Rock's favorite deaf, dumb and blind kid is coming back with newly remastered sound and a whole bunch of bonus material.
By 2004, Hilary Duff was one of the more popular young stars on the planet, having enjoyed success on television (as the star of the Disney Channel's 'Lizzie McGuire' series), in theaters (with a budding film career that included a role in 'Agent Cody Banks') and on the pop charts, where she'd enjoyed a string of moderate hit singles. None of this, however, qualified her to cover the Who's 'My Generation.'
The final album by the Who's original lineup was a product of its time. Released three years after its predecessor, 'The Who by Numbers' (which indeed sounded like the band on autopilot at times), 1978's 'Who Are You' had a lot to contend with, like punk rock, electronics insurgence and perhaps most importantly, a songwriter who seemed to be growing out of his band.
On one side, there's one of the most revered rock bands of all time undertaking a landmark album with an electrifying combination of subtlety and power. On the other side, there's one of the most reviled bands of the past 20 years demolishing a rock classic with the ham-fisted arrogance with which they approached their own intolerable music.
