The two remaining members of The Who do not share the same sentiments when it comes to the band’s future. While Peter Townshend may want to settle down and enjoy the finest things in life away from the constant chaos of performing live, Roger Daltrey, however, wants to “tour until he drops.”
The Who are poising themselves for an upcoming 2022 The Who Hits Back! 29-show tour starting on April 22 in Hollywood, Florida, and ends on Nov. 4-5 in Nevada. While preparing, Rolling Stone caught time to interview Townshend and his thoughts regarding The Who’s next move.
For Townshend, he’s settled to the idea of retirement where he can do the things he’d always wanted to do. “I don’t want to be like one of these guys that die on tour,” he said. However, Townshend also pointed out that this isn’t what Daltrey had in mind. “Roger is of the opinion that he wants to sing until he drops. That’s not my philosophy of life. There are other things that I want to do, still want to do, and will do, I hope,” he further adds.
But for Townshend, making music remains the top priority, and he’s only saying goodbye to the hectic schedule of touring. Furthermore, he’s hopeful about his life inside the 2022 tour, since we’re about to see the light at the end of this dark tunnel of this Covid-19 pandemic.
