I've always resisted the urge to 'do the memoir' but now, finally, I feel I've enough perspective. When you've spent more than half a century at the epicentre of a band like The Who, perspective can be a problem. Everything happened in the moment. One minute, I'm on the factory floor in Shepherd's Bush, the next, I'm headlining Woodstock. It's taken three years to unpick the events of my life, to remember who did what when and why, to separate the myths from the reality, to unravel what really happened at the Holiday Inn on Keith Moon's 21st birthday. I hope the result is more than just another autobiography. I've been lucky enough to live in interesting times. I've witnessed society, music and culture change beyond recognition. That I'm still here to tell my tale when so many others around me didn't make it is nothing short of a miracle.' - Roger Daltrey. As immediate as Keith Richards' autobiography and as frank and honest as Springsteen and Clapton, Thank You Mr Kibblewhite is candid, self-deprecating and full of humour (the title refers to his music teacher at school who told him he'd never amount to anything) as Roger takes us through his early life and 50 years with The Who and their incredible 100 million selling career. His autobiography is a must-have not just for The Who fans worldwide, but also for any lover of rock music. Born in the heart of the Blitz in March 1944, Roger fought his way (literally) through school and from poverty. His story is one of hard work, resilience and breathtaking energy. His accounts of the rock 'n' roll excesses for which The Who became notorious - the guitar smashing, the fistfights, the mayhem - are as entertaining as they are shocking. But as compelling as the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll are Roger's honest reflections on the relationships that have defined an incredible life and career - notably the bittersweet memories of his friendship with Keith Moon, and his tumultuous relationship with Pete Townshend which has defined one of the greatest creative partnerships of our age and given rise to so many unforgettable hits. Not only is this Roger's personal story, this is the definitive history of one of the world's biggest bands.
