The Who
The Who in the Sixties

In this extremely candid interview Roger Daltrey talks about 40 years of The Who, the death of John Entwistle and much more.

He also gives a valuable insight into the workings of one of Britain's greatest and most influential bands.

Here's a sample:

Daltrey on Keith Moon:

"He had great big black eyebrows with mischief written all over them."

On the death of John Entwistle and The Who's My Generation ethos:

"Touring took some of the pain away..."

"John died before he got old and I'm sure we all will. It's a state of mind."
