    From the voice of a generation: the most highly anticipated autobiography of the year, and the story of a man who wanted The Who to be called The Hair; wanted to be a sculptor, a journalist, a dancer and a graphic designer; became a musician, composer, librettist, fiction writer, literary editor, sailor; drank too much and nearly died; detached from his body in an airplane, on LSD, and nearly died; planned to write his memoir when he was 21; and published this book at 67.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have always been a huge fan of the Who and Pete Townshend, so I was really looking forward to his book. I have to say for the most part it was a great listen. Pete Townshend has always come across like a bit of a prat and this book doesn't do anything to change my opinion. He is still one of the most brilliant musicians of our time and prat or not he has still had a very interesting life.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Pete Townshend’s life?

    What more is there to know. One thing you can say about this book is it's detailed. Pete covers his whole life in great detail and it's almost all very interesting
