It shows how The Who earned success because of two men wanting to film the failures and triumphs of a band trying to make it in rock and roll.

Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp were wanna be filmmakers looking for a subject for a movie. They found The High Numbers, the band that would become The Who. The band they would help make hugely successful. The story is one worth telling.

It’s the band’s co-managers before they were involved in the music business, and the story of the rise of one of the greatest bands in the world. The New York Post says:

“We see in the film that Stamp’s family thought the whole endeavor was a bad idea — because they thought The Who were “too ugly” to be successful.”

“Lambert & Stamp” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year, was purchased by Sony and will be out Friday, April 3rd. It shows how The Who earned success because of two men wanting to film the failures and triumphs of a band trying to make it in rock and roll.
