Desert Trip Wasn't Great For The Who's Pete Townshend

(Classic Rock) The Who's Pete Townshend says playing live "means nothing" to him. The guitarist and his veteran bandmates recently performed alongside acts such as The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Bob Dylan at the star-studded Desert Trip festival in California - but he admits he gets no real buzz from hitting the stage.

He tells The Times (via The Guardian): "I'm such a boring f***er. It means nothing to me. I would be a liar if I said, 'It was really fun, man. It was great!' It wasn't great. It was a gig. I did it and I got paid.

"The fact is, I don't really like performing. But I'm good at it. I'm lucky to be good at something. I could have worked in an abattoir. I don't get high on stage. I might come off stage and look in the mirror and go, 'Hee hee,' but it's mischievous. It's, 'What a load of crap. We pulled off another scam.'" Read more here.
