The Who’s Pete Townshend is surely one of the most interesting guitarists in rock history. Behind the band’s collective legacy with him being joined by Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon, and John Entwistle, one song that made a mark in music history and culture was “Won’t Get Fooled Again”.
Born as Peter Dennis Blandford Townshend in Chiswick, London on May 19, 1945, the guitarist, together with The Who, dominated pretty much of the ’60s and ’70s with their very own brand of blues and hard rock, with a career run spanning an impressive forty years down the line.
Townshend also acts as the band’s primary songwriter and composer, having written hundreds of songs spread over eleven studio albums of The Who with his most acclaimed being the conceptual records and rock operas like Tommy and Quadrophenia.
More than being just a guitarist, however, Townshend is well-versed with other instruments such as the banjo, accordion, synthesizer, piano, bass, and drums, having recorded parts on the said instruments both on his solo endeavors and his collaborations with other artists.
The current lineup of the Who has Townshend and Daltrey being the only original members left, while drumming for them is Ringo Starr’s son, Zak Starkey.
