Summary
"Roger Daltrey is the voice of a generation. That generation was the first to rebel, to step out of the shadows of the Second World War... to invent the concept of the teenager. This is his story, from his birth during the air bombing of London in 1944, through tempestuous school days to his expulsion, age 15, for a crime he did not commit (though he was guilty of many other misdemeanors he'd gotten away with). Thanks to Mr. Kibblewhite, his draconian headmaster, it could all have ended there. The life of a factory worker beckoned. But then came rock and roll. He made his first guitar from factory offcuts. He formed a band. The band became The Who--Maximum R&B--and, by luck and by sheer bloody-mindedness, Roger Daltrey became the front man of one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. This is the story of My Generation, Tommy, and Quadrophenia, of smashed guitars, exploding drums, cars in swimming pools, fights, arrests and redecorated hotel rooms. But it is also the story of how that post-war generation redefined the rules of youth. Out of that, the modern music industry was born--and it wasn't an easy birth. Money, drugs and youthful exuberance were a dangerous mix. This is as much a story of survival as it is of success. Four years in the making, this is the first time Roger Daltrey has told his story. It is not just his own hilarious and frank account of more than 50 wild years on the road. It is the definitive story of The Who and of the sweeping revolution that was British rock 'n' roll."--Dust jacket
