The Who do Bob Dylan... or rather Roger Daltrey does a spot on emulation of the Blonde on Blonde era voice, see part two of "A Quick One", the short bit called "Crying Town":

Roger Daltrey is still blowing the roof off with that voice of his:

OK. I think we've only done one Beatle, and (maybe) the Stones; the Who, the Kinks, quite a few other groups deserve to be both group and topic.

The one I wanted for Saturday was "Dog Days" because that's what it is, here; but I'd forgotten that Saturday night - so I've got it planned for next Saturday. We can do the who the following week, so I'll slot that in. But there's no schedule, like the one for the blog; I don't even write songs and topics down. Come Saturday, I'll post what I think of.

Found this on the Internet Archive, some good information on the making of the second album of The Who, interestingly one of the last great "album" albums, really no hit singles on the record, except "Happy Jack", which was added later in America:

https://web.archive.org/web/20110606091547/http://www.thewho.net/linernotes/AQuickOne.htm

A QUICK ONE

Roger Daltrey Vocals
John Entwistle Bass Guitar [Horns] and Vocals
Keith Moon Drums
Pete Townshend Guitar and Vocals

Produced by Kit Lambert
Sleeve design by Alan Aldridge [later editor of The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics and designer of the cover for Elton John's Captain Fantastic and The Brown Dirt Cowboy]

The Who have a new album almost out, after many years, 13, I think:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Who_(album)

"Who (stylized in all caps) is the upcoming twelfth studio album by the English rock band The Who, due to be released on 22 November 2019..."

Wilko Johnson & Roger Daltrey Can You Please Crawl Out of Your Window
Wow, is this what Chess Records is up to these days (well, 2014)? Good for them.
Can someone explain how this can be issued by "Chess Records" in 2014? I don't get it (though I love the cover).
"Wilko Johnson, legendary guitarist with Dr Feelgood, and Roger
Daltrey, lead singer of rock giants The Who are to release a joint
album GOING BACK HOME on the world famous Chess label which has been
resurrected specifically for this record. "
Thanks, JK. Strange and wonderful. Thanks, Will. From what I've heard so far, this is an ass-kicking album. Amazing that Johnson was battling pancreatic cancer while they made it. I'd never heard of him. Will pursue.
While doing a little research on Wilko Johnson, the rabbit hole, as
Johnny Kidd and the Pirates -- Shakin' All Over

Great song...….
