Perhaps you were one of the merry few who watched, Pete Townshend and  Rachel Fuller host with Simon Townshend (hermano de Peter) the podcast “the Attic”, available now on Apple Itunes ? The podcast was shot mostly inside a travel trailer, set up as studio.  Pete and Rachel welcomed notable singer songwriters, bands who played one set of songs with or without Peter and Rachel.  I have featured a few of the Attic tracks and others that feature Peter with guitar and solo voice.   The primary songwriter for the Who who sang backup mostly to Roger, turns out to be the better singer over time. Voice survived in the background.

I have included the best duet, imho, with Eddie Vedder, “Heart to hang onto” live on Letterman.

Table Talking with The Townshends: “Can’t Outrun The Truth’

Pete and Rachel talk about how the new single ‘Can’t Outrun The Truth’ came about, why it was written, who wrote it., who produced it, and who sang on it. Over a mug of tea in the kitchen, they discuss the recording of the song and how it was all done in 2021 during the lockdown, with Pete in his home studio and Rachel producing while suffering the aches and pains of a bad back. Such is show biz!

Townshend plays Tattoo and I’m One back stage in Tampa in 2000 with a very cool solo rhythm jam at the end.

This is the director’s cut of Steve Luongo’s interview with Pete Townshend for “An Ox’s Tale,” which features an additional 15 minutes from their very candid 3-hour + conversation. Some of this footage is also featured in “Amazing Journey,” although much of it has never been seen.

Found this early video of the “Attic” video podcast featuring a very young Adele=age 18 to 19 years.  Very nice to catch the pre-performance yuck up with Rachel and Adele about early adulthood, childhood and common school antics.

Pete Townshends Deep End – Face The Face

This show was filmed for the famous German TV series Rockpalast at MIDEM in Cannes on 29th January 1986. Pete Townshend’s Deep End were touring in support of Townshend’s solo concept album “White City: A Novel”. Several of the musicians that appeared on the album were featured in the line-up of the Deep End including Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour on lead guitar. The set list has tracks from the “White City” album, other Pete Townshend solo tracks, Who classics, David Gilmour’s song “Blue Light” and a couple of surprises. Pete Townshend and the band deliver an outstanding performance that showcases him as a solo artist as distinct from his work with The Who.
