Roger Daltrey Would Take A Who Tour Over His Tommy Trek

(Gibson) Roger Daltrey is preparing to be on the road this summer, performing The Who's legendary 1969 album Tommy in its entirety. But, he said, if he had it his way, he'd rather be trekking around with The Who.

"Pete [Townshend] is having terrible hearing problems at the moment," Daltrey told Rolling Stone. "I've also had a voice scare. There's nobody I'd rather be on stage with than Pete. But equally, I don't want to be on stage with him destroying the last bit of his hearing. That would be completely foolish. He's a composer."

While Daltrey's out there performing Tommy as a solo artist, Townshend will be working on his forthcoming autobiography, Who He? The Who frontman said he's not sure what to expect from the memoir. "I'm not particularly looking forward to it," Daltrey said and then laughed. "When I look back to some of his interviews, he's said some weird things. I wonder, who's writing this book? But anyway, all I know is that whatever happens on the public stage, behind the scenes we're the best of friends. We're like brothers. Not to say we get on with each other all the time, but if we were ever in trouble, you know that we'd both be there for each other. That's all that matters." more on this story
