Roger Daltrey Confused by Pete Townshend’s Ideas

The Who LogoIn a recent interview with Q The Music, The Who’s Roger Daltrey admits he was initially confused by Pete Townshend’s concept album ideas, including Tommy and Quadrophenia.

“Did I have to ask him what the hell he was on about? All the time [laughs],” Daltrey said.

“But equally, there’s always one sentence that comes out of that rambling brain of his that you can grasp. With Tommy it was: ‘Imagine living life where you can only feel vibrations’ and I could latch on to that,” continued Daltrey.

The Who will be recording a new album this summer, their first since 2006’s Endless Wire. Townshend has reportedly written more than 100 songs for the project.
