Yes, this book is an honest story of a music life some would love to live. Townsend shows he is a thinking man with feelings and reactions to living as we all do. This story adds clarity to the Who as a band and empathy to its leading light ... Pete Townsend.
This story is a refreshing look at the heady days of the music scene, fresh and exciting .... before accountants and lawyers stole it from us.
Slowly, Townsend evolves into the man he is today, a sometimes painful look within, he shares his feelings. and without the fear of the useless media attacking, the story is for the reader or listener, not a journalist with an ache for a sound bite?
I hope Pete Townsend finds his solace in his studio, he has demonstrated to his audience that he is a thinker, a lover, a musician of worth and a man of the times he grew up in.
A book to be treasured and read again as we continue to grow up.
a baby boomer.
the author, it's a bio stupid!
"I can't explain"
This book is better as an audio book as the nuances from the reader gives light to attitudes and outlook subtly coming through in his voice and laughter.
This is interesting, and I found myself revisiting Hendrix songs with a new ear and more respect for his work. His music still unfolds today.
no, it was entertaining throughout
to complete this audio book, some of the music discussed should be included, rather than say at what min/sec point you needed to find.
