Quadrophenia: Can You See the Real Me?

Genre: Documentary
59 min

The trouble is with Pete,

working with him,

he had these wonderful little

kernels of ideas

but then he would want to pitch them

and make them into stories.

But we got the essence of it.

This guy's got all the personalities

of every member in the band

and it's just one guy.

And that was enough for me to say,

"Great idea, let's go for it."

This is how the album starts, OK.

No other Who album starts with

ambient noise.

And it very specifically

is putting you in a place,

it sets a scene, which

none of the other Who albums did.

Once we had the sea noise going,

we just introduced each

theme of the four themes.

The first thing you hear

is I Am The Sea,

the breathy sound of,

"I am the sea."

And do-dee-do-do-do, which is

the Helpless Dancer.

Then you hear, is it me for a

moment, which is the romantic side

and so on.

Instead of having

a straight overture,

you get pieces of the songs

and it comes back as memories.

You're automatically put

on that rock.

And you hear the themes and then

bang into the first track which is,

Can You See The Real Me?

He's at the doctor,

he's going to the shrink,

he's going to the priest,

he's going to his mother for advice,

and I wanted to establish

very, very quickly

that this is not just a troubled

boy, this is a boy that has

mental illness.

He's bipolar

or he's manic-depressive.

And this idea of him being,

you know, doubly schizophrenic.

I went back to my mother

I said, I'm crazy, ma, help me

She said, I know how it feels, son

Cos it runs in the family

Can you see the real me, mother,


Can you see the real me, mother

Whoa, Mama...

Once you hear that track,

you know that this is going to be

the revelation of a condition.

Jimmy gets up in the morning,

goes to see his shrink,
