The Who Haunted By Keith Moon and John Entwistle
"We feel the ghosts of Keith and John," he said. "The second phase of The Who in a sense was really when we started to tour again around the year 2000, 2001. We were still able to evoke the sound, particularly with [drummer] Zak Starkey. Now it's much more difficult even though Zak's there. John's sound was very big and rich and organic. When John died, there was a hole in the sound onstage and I was able to grow into that and find space. And I have to say as a guitar player, I prefer working without John. But as a member of The Who creating the incredible, powerful, driving, visceral sound, he's gone. I can't really do that again."
Townshend also said he's put production duties for the upcoming Quadrophenia tour into the hands of Roger Daltrey. "He's working on a new dramatic scenario for it," Townshend said, "working on a new video, trying to find a way to be comfortable being the narrator." more on this story
