"That February, John Entwistle heard that another band was also called The Detours, so we came back to Sunnyside Road after a local show and brainstormed band names for hours. Barney suggested The Who and I suggested The Hair. For a while I hung on to my choice (Could I have somehow had an intuition that the word ‘hair’ was going to launch a million hippies a few years later?). Then, on Valentine’s Day 1964, we made our choice. We became The Who”.
