The Who's Roger Daltrey On When To Call It Quits (A Top Story)

On Friday The Who's Roger Daltrey On When To Call It Quits was a top rock story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) The Who's Roger Daltrey says he hopes he has the wisdom to know when the time is right to call time on his career. The frontman, 72, doesn't know for sure if the band's current The Who Hits 50 tour will be their last, but he is sure he doesn't want to compromise on his lively onstage performances.

Daltrey tells Canoe: "In our heads we want to go on as long as we can. And our bodies, you kind of physically know you're coming to the end of that type of show. That's not to say you can't play your music in different ways.

"But equally, our music, having got that energy and that kind of urgency that is within it, I'm not so sure whether I want to be involved with singing in that way. I don't think it's the kind of music you could ever cruise through.

"When you get to a certain age, that would be the only way you could do it. So I just hope I have the wisdom to stop when I feel that coming." Read more - here.
