PETE TOWNSHEND SAYS NEW WHO SHOW IS ROGER DALTREY'S VISION

11/28/2012

Although he wrote and produced the Who's 1973 Quadrophenia project, Pete Townshend credits Roger Daltrey for conceiving the band's current tour behind the classic rock opera. Townshend told us that Daltrey that has actually realized his original goal for the album back in the day: "When Quadrophenia was first finished, back in '73, one of my frustrations was that I imagined it was going to go straight out on the road -- not exactly as a show, but something quite close to a show. So, for me, that realization of the music as a show is really important. But there's something else about it, which is great for me, which is that you can hear that Roger has, a, y'know, a tremendous creative investment in this. And I think it's one of the few things we've done, where we've been able to come together. Y'know, what Roger is doing these days, he's actually creating a new way of putting it across, and as he says, bringing it up to date."
