520 0 |a This is Roger Daltrey's story, from his birth during the air bombing of London in 1944, through tempestuous school days to his expulsion at age 15. Thanks to Mr. Kibblewhite, his headmaster, it could all have ended there. Then rock and roll came on the scene--he made his first guitar; he formed a band, and the band became The Who--Maximum R&B, and Roger Daltrey became the front man of one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. This is the story of My Generation, Tommy, and Quadrophenia, of smashed guitars, exploding drums, cars in swimming pools, fights, arrests and redecorated hotel rooms. But it is also the story of how that post-war generation redefined the rules of youth. The modern music industry was born. Money, drugs and youthful exuberance were a dangerous mix. This is as much a story of survival as it is of success. Roger Daltrey tells his story--his own account of more than 50 wild years on the road, the definitive story of The Who and of the sweeping revolution that was British rock 'n' roll.--From dust jacket.
