The Who's Daltrey Had Hard Time Being Tommy Movie Star
Daltrey – whose bandmate Pete Townshend recently said The Who would play their final large-scale tour in 2015 – tells Rolling Stone: "I didn't realise the difference between being what you would call a film star and a rock star. It was enormously different – it was very hard to deal with for a year or two after that.
"It was just crazy. People just treat you so differently and you go: 'I don't want to be treated differently. I want to be in a rock band.' It was hard. Just very, very difficult.
"They would call me Tommy and it would really get on my tits. But ultimately I was always determined to hang on to The Who through that whole roller-coaster of a period." more on this story
