Let me start by saying Pete Townshend is my favourite song writer and The Who’s Quadrophenia in my opinion is the best rock and roll record of all time. Now that we got that out of the way what did I learn from Pete Townshend’s book Who I Am? I learned that he is/was bi sexual, was molested, bought and sold a lot of boats and houses, ruined relationships, was an unrepentant alcoholic and overall seems like a pretentious twat. Oh and he got in trouble for looking at a website and that the backing vocals on The Who Live At Leeds were recorded after the fact (Most live records of the time have a similar story)
I can separate the artist from the art… Thank god.
