Pete Townshend Wishes He Never Would Have Joined The Who

1 Comment 25 March 2011

Pete Townshend stated recently that he wishes he had never joined The Who. He was speaking in the new one-off magazine The Who: The Ultimate Music Guide, made by the makers of Uncut.  According to NME , Townshend said that  despite the band’s legacy he thinks he’d have done even better as a solo performer. He also said would be in better health now. “What would I have done differently? I would never have joined a band,” he said. “Even though I am quite a good gang member and a good trooper on the road, I am bad at creative collaboration.” He added: “I would have made a much more effective solo performer and producer working the way Brian Eno has worked. I would be less physically damaged today. “My ears, right wrist and shoulder would work more efficiently. In all other respects I am in extremely good shape.”

    You’ve got to be kidding, I’m a Who fan and though I recognize Petes incredible talent, I dont believe he would be the icon he is today without the rest of the band. I think he is incredibly full of himself. He must have fallen down the same rabbit hole as Roger Waters.
