Having now reached his sixties, Pete Townshend has battled drug and alcohol addiction while becoming one of rock's most eloquent and intelligent spokesmen. Ventures as a solo artist, Internet pioneer, literary editor, and short story writer have vied with one another while his well-publicized public rows with Who singer Roger Daltrey have become the stuff of legend. Recent Who revival tours have ensured that the musician from West London who helped revolutionize the '60s can still be seen doing what he became famous for in the first place. This new edition of a distinguished biography reminds us of the excitement Pete Townshend generated and brings his story right up to date with many fascinating stops on the way.
