Pete Townshend & Roger Daltrey: ‘The Who Sell Out’ Released in 1967 and their Legacy | Apple Music
The legendary guitarist of The Who, Pete Townshend connects with Zane Lowe to reflect on the band’s third studio album ‘The Who Sell Out’ which propelled their career back in 1967. Celebrating the deluxe version of this standout record, Pete Townshend talks about the storytelling throughout this concept album, influencing how other musicians approached their sound, and moments that shaped The Who’s legacy. Roger Daltrey also reflects on creating the record, his involvement with the Teenage Cancer Trust charity in the UK, and motivation for the band’s future.

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.

This is one of my favorite tracks on White City -A Novel. It is worth listening to the entire album from track 1 through 9 for the benefit of flow and Novel integrity.
