Raised in very different backgrounds, friends Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert quickly realized their destinies were intertwined. Inspired by the burgeoning youth culture of the early 1960s, these two British lads hatched a rather nontraditional plan to become the filmmakers they had always dreamed of being. They decided to find a young band, manage it, and then make a film about the band's success. After discovering a group called High Numbers playing a raucous show at an overcrowded underground café, Lambert and Stamp immediately hired the four young musicians and began building their careers under a new name: The Who. Through the ups and downs of business, friendship, success, failure, aging, and death, LAMBERT & STAMP captures the spirit and intoxication of two men inspired by the ethos of their time: "We are powerful and beautiful." Using interviews from Roger Daltrey and Peter Townshend and evocative archival footage, filmmaker James D. Cooper takes us along on the surprising ride that created one of the most iconic bands in world music: its sound and look defined a generation.
