    I just don t know what to make of this Is my tepid feeling for the book about the book or about or Townshend The band, as the first pages says, is Roger s thing, but everything that follows says that it s Pete s thing Pete is not just writing music he s making personnel decisions he s n

    As a long time Who fan I ve been looking forward to Pete Townsend s frank appraisal of life with the Who and beyond I first saw them live in Auckland, New Zealand in the late sixties, and for many years kept a small piece of Keith Moon s drum kit which I souvenired after he demolished it at the

    Read in the interest of fairness after Roger s book It s double the length of Roger s efforts, and is thorough and fair, as I d expect Pete to be He comes across these days as humble and aware of others than he ever was in his younger years, and clearly has deep respect for Roger He writes kindly about

    As a long time admirer of Pete Townshend s songwriting and musicianship, both as part of The Who and as a solo artist, I was a bit nervous about reading this book It can be very disillusioning to discover that people we look up to as inspirations are, in fact, real people, and may not correspond at all with the l

    The Who was my favorite band when I was a teenager When I began to make the transition from records and tapes to CDs, the first longbox I bought was Quadrophenia I started reading Who I Am in the middle, because I think Pete was most compelling when he was in his late 30s From 1980 to 1982, he released two solo albums and the Who released two albums None ar
