If 1974 had been a bizarre year, 1975 was more structured in some ways. Several events happened in 1975 that were important to their financial security, for both good and ill.
The most significant events of 1975 were the release of the motion picture Tommy, the release of The Who by Numbers, and the beginning of a huge tour of Europe, the UK, and North America. Now, there were certainly some problems associated with all three of these events, but 1975 turned out to be a pretty good year for them.
However, Townshend was not a really good frame of mind for much of the year. He was very unhappy with his place in the band and whether or not there even should be a band called The Who, at least with him in it. It is sort of an interesting turn of events that kept them together, and there is more on that later.
