He was Pete Townshend to lead singer Robin Zander's Roger Daltrey. But the band would never have seen the success they did, however, without the monster rhythm section of drummer Bun E. Carlos and bassist Tom Petersson. The set begins by emphasizing material from the band's recent In Color album, with the triple whammy of "Hello There," "Big Eyes," and "Southern Girls. The former would eventually get the studio treatment on their Dream Police album in 1979, while the latter would soon be issued on the band's next album, Heaven Tonight, generally considered to be the band's strongest studio effort of the era, where their music culminated in some of the most perfectly realized hook-filled hard rock with plenty of attitude.
THERE were times when Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend would settle their differences with a swift left hook or a well-aimed uppercut. It’s 18 months since we’ve seen each other, Daltrey confesses instantly, but it is Townshend who takes the bait first. My journey with Roger has gone from what I would call an uncomfortable and uneasy place to the most wonderful of places. it’s just got better and better, he says. There have been difficulties but nothing that would cause either of us to lose any sleep. Daltrey: Exactly, it’s like criticising his children.
Pete Townshend, The Who’s guitarist and principal songwriter, was born into a musical family in Chiswick, West London, on May 19, 1945. His father Cliff played the alto saxophone with the RAF dance band The Squadronaires, and his mother Betty Dennis sang professionally. An aunt encouraged him to learn piano but after seeing the movie Rock Around The Clock in 1956 he was drawn to rock’n’roll, an interest his parents actively encouraged. Pete and John both attended Acton County Grammar School where another, slightly older, pupil Roger Daltrey had a group called The Detours. Roger invited John to join and about six months later the nucleus of The Who was in place when John persuaded Roger that Pete should join too.
