In 1962, Roger Daltrey bumped into John Entwistle on the street and invited him to join his band called the Detours. Entwistle, who played the French horn and bass, suggested that his good friend Pete Townshend join as the group's guitarist. They began playing regular gigs at London's Marquee Club, and by 1964 they'd changed their name to the Who.
