Lambert & Stamp

Genre: Documentary, Biography, History; Starring: Kit Lambert, Chris Stamp, Roger Daltrey; Director: James D. Cooper; Release Date Limited: 04/03/2015; Runtime (in minutes): 117; MPAA Rating: R

According to this origin-story doc about the Who, the luck and pluck of two hustlers helped four mods become one of the biggest acts on the planet. The band’s first managers take center stage in this fascinating time capsule of swinging ’60s London: Kit Lambert was a blue blood with a dizzying musical IQ; Chris Stamp had the Carnaby Street flash. Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey testify to their importance—before drugs, ego, and paranoia soured the deal. B+
