Drawing on interviews with Daltrey himself, as well as his friends and fellow musicians, this is the most complete and revealing biography of one of rock's most powerful personalities."Hope I die before I get old," sang Roger Daltrey more than 40 years ago, but it didn't quite work out like that. The wild and passionate lead singer for supergroup The Who is still very much alive, the premature deaths of Keith Moon and John Entwistle leaving Daltrey and Pete Townshend as the only survivors of the legendary band. Roger Daltrey's extraordinary life is detailed here from start to finish: from being expelled from school and written off as a violent thug before he ever made his first guitar out of a block of wood, and the story of how music and The Who became his salvation. His many years as the voice of a generation are also discussed here, as the authors look at the life behind the icon strutting bare-chested on stage, swinging the mic like a lariat at The Who's dynamic concerts.
