Townshend and Daltrey may reunite
The Who may be returning, again.
In a posting on his website, Pete Townshend says that he and singer Roger Daltrey are planning to get together for the first Who studio album in more than two decades.
“Roger and I [will] meet in mid-December to play what we have written,” Townshend, the guitarist and primary songwriter of the group, writes. “If we move ahead from there, we may have a CD ready to release in the spring. My working title for the project -- ‘Who2' -- is only partly tongue-in-cheek.”
Despite famously proclaiming “hope I die before I get old” in the song “My Generation,” the Who have frequently reunited to perform since disbanding in 1983. But the new album would be the British band’s first studio recording since 1982’s “It’s Hard.”
The other two members of the original Who, drummer Keith Moon and bassist John Entwistle, died in 1978 and 2002, respectively.
