The Who Need You to Complete a 50th Anniversary Project

That The Who would commemorate their 50th Anniversary with yet another compilation was a given, hence the upcoming double-disc Who Hits 50, but Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have just announced that a release sure to appeal to the less casual fan may also be in the works. Though it is currently at the most rudimentary planning stage (meaning a release probably won't actually coincide with this year's 50th anniversary milestone), Pete and Rog are calling on you, the collector of rare material, to contribute odds and sods to this as yet unconfirmed project. Or maybe it's just an elaborate sting operation to nab some bootleggers.

In any event, The Who's remaining twosome released the following video plea for radio interviews and missing footage (particularly the rest of Kit Lambert's Railway Hotel footage, parts of which had been on the Amazing Journey DVD):
According to the Outside Organisation PR company's Facebook page, The Who are also on the look out for "rare radio and TV performances, home movies from gigs, extraordinary bootleg material, demos, unusual photos and memorabilia for their 50th anniversary releases." Anyone with such materials can pitch them to the band via email at thewho@umusic.com.
