“Magic Bus” is a song written by Pete Townshend at the time of My Generation in 1965, but not recorded by The Who until 1968. It is one of the band’s most popular songs and has been a concert staple. The record reached #26 in the United Kingdom and #25 in the United States. The song’s arrangement uses a Latin percussion instrument known as claves. These are pairs of small wooden sticks that make a distinctive high pitched clicking noise when struck together. The Who previously used the same instrument on the song Disguises, recorded in 1966. The song makes use of the Bo Diddley beat. Read on...
