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 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
Pete Townshend narrates his autobiography, giving increased poignancy to his fascinating and complicated story. As he balanced his acute intelligence with his manic stage presence, he embodied the essence of The Who. Never shy about revealing his many inner demons, his honesty and daring make this a very satisfying listen.
Compelling insight into Pete Townshend and the WHO among others.
Tedious at times but overall well worth the time.
Investigate some early WHO recordings and investigate some references
Pete made in his book
At times fascinating but a bit ponderous. It could have been done well in about half the time.
I am a Who and a Pete Townshend fan that knows more than I need to know to enjoy their wonderful music.
