"Classic Quadrophenia" was conducted by Robert Ziegler and recorded at Air Studios in London in October of 2014 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and features vocals from acclaimed tenor Alfie Boe as well as Townshend on guitar and "cameo vocal roles", according to the official synopsis.

"When you singlehandedly bring a band to its knees like he had done, and we all split up, and then you build something, you're not all of a sudden going to just jump back to the other band and forget what you've built.
"I think he took all his frustrations out on me. We were having lunch in catering. He was like, 'Hey man, what are you doing in January,' and I'm like, 'I'm going to the studio with Alter Bridge, we've talked about this.' He's like, 'Really?' From then on we didn't speak. On tour. On stage. Didn't speak." Read morehere.

They're not actually that easy to do - it's not simple 12-bar stuff."
