PETE TOWNSHEND – WHO I AM (Book review)

Posted in: Rock And Roll |

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.
