Pete Townshend To Release His Memoir

(hennemusic) The Who's Pete Townshend will publish his memoir, "Who I Am," in October. "This book is not a vanity for me. It is an essential rite of passage," said Townshend in a press release. "I know I am good at what I do as a performer and composer, but since my early teens, I have been happiest when writing. Writing is my principal daily occupation."

"Rock 'n' Roll is a tough career, however cynically or comically it is portrayed by its detractors," Pete continued. "I am lucky to be alive and to have such a crazy story to tell, full of wild adventures and creative machinations. I am happy that I am able to write my book myself, in my own 'voice' that many readers will be hearing for the first time."

"I am not my favourite subject, that will always be art and music, but whenever I write about my life and work, I learn something," added the guitar icon. "So, the year ahead spent writing will also trigger the last vital bit of 'growing up' required by the now pensionable fellow who once wrote I hope I die before I get old. I want to write a book that is enjoyable to read, but above all, I want it to be honest." more on this story
