They did mention the Lifehouse project, but I don't recall them saying that it was the seedling for Quadrophenia ... only that it was a failure.

And (unless I missed it) they only mentioned the original demo tracks Townshend created.

The Who was a damn unusual combination of people, that's certain ... it was a little odd that it all worked was well as it did. In this particular documentary, they emphasized the fact that Townshend wasn't much of a fan of Moon's drumming, for example ... a viewpoint which Daltrey found offensive.

Even though some of the bands felt (probably rightly) they needed a "gimmick", those were the days when music still had a raw, spontaneous edge that I miss. There was something in those early performances that is hard to replicate.

I just checked and this particular documentary debuted on July 24, 2012 and I definitely want to see it.

After a quick IMDB search, the film I referred to is "Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who (2007 documentary)". It's a two disc DVD set and I highly recommend it.
