Sucking It Up for $100 Million

| Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic Minute

Drama!

Sources say things on The Who reunion tour aren't going well.

Frontman Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend are supposedly not getting along.

Amongst other beef between the two, Townshend supposedly wants to try out some of the new stuff he's written on the road, whereas Daltrey thinks they should stick to the classics.

But, with the tour expected to make $100 million, anything and everything's being done to keep it together. Here's how they're doing it:

- The two rockers must have separate dressing rooms on opposite ends of the hallway.

- There will be no conversation between the two of them either before or after performances. "They will basically show up, play, and leave," reveals the insider.

- They must have separate travel arrangements, separate hotel accommodations, as well as separate staffing.

Crazy!

A friend of ours reports that the The Who ended their VH1 Rock Honors performance a little weird on Saturday.

After the last song, while Roger Daltrey was saying 'thank you' to the crowd, Pete Townshend hurriedly walked off stage.

When Daltrey realized he was on stage sans Townshend, he shrugged his shoulders to the crowd before scurrying off.

Now it's coming together.

Interesting!

    I DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE!!!!!!!!
    The Who is one of the greatest bands OF ALL TIME!!!
    i think this story is being blown out of proportion and it is no secret to real fans that Rog & Pete have in fact had creative differences in the past.
    what we should all be focusing on is the fact that we actually get a chance to hear Real Music again..
    not this crap we call "music" on the scene now-a-days.
    no one can deny they make an AMAZING team!
    id pay well upwards in the hundreds to see them play so bullocks to those who wanna focus on some ridiculous rumors such as these!!!
    obviously dont know good music when you hear it!

    I'm sorry, I was a big Who fan for years but this is not The Who. Without Moon and Entwistle, it is Townshend/Daltrey. They need to retire already. In fact, they should have retired the day after Keith Moon died. They haven't been the same sense. I've seen them twice but you couldn't pay me to see them now. Talk about depressing.

  23. 23

    This is good news for Eddie Vedder, because he would love to be able to sing with Townsend, suck Townsends cock, and have Townend's dick up his diapered ass…and he would pay to do it…which is good news for Townsend.

  24. hobie says – reply to this


    24

    First, it's Roger DaltrEy. That 'e' is very important you know. Second, if you played with the same bloke since you were about 17 and you are now in your 60s you'd both get sick of each other. Third, they've always had beef. That's nothing new. Fourth, Townsend likely walked off because he said his piece and their time was up. Roger went in to say something and realized Pete already left. The Who, along with Led Zeppelin, are among the greatest bands of all time and they don't make music like that anymore.

    THE WHO is the greatest rock band ever. they prob should call it a day, but even in their 60's they still can rock harder then the crap bands they on the radio… except the FOOS!

    Pete's an odd dude, but a genius.
    Plus, Rodger & Pete always butt heads and speak openly about it… nothing new.



  39. 39

    Not surprised. Pete Townshend probably wanted to get off stage to check out the kiddie porn sites he 'researches' that and his songs are probably about being banged up due to Operation Ore, the filthy fucking pervert. Like Daltry I wouldn't want to spend much time with a pervert either

    isn`t townsend a registered sex offender with scotland yard for downloading thousands of child pornography pics on his computer while `researching` for his autobiography. who would want to hang out with that. take the money and run, i say, and ignore the pervert; sounds like he`s got his own thing going anyway. geez, folks, gotta take a flippen stand on this stuff. don`t support him.

    This is really a shame. Noone can say for sure what their relationship status is except for THEM but that goes for ANY celeb gossip, but, I think that they should try to put their differences aside for the tour if there are any differences. If not for their friendship, do it for their devoted fans. People WANT to see them being bestest, not having problems. There is just too much history there. Too many good memories. =(

    Re: mims

    Um, yeah, you're pretty much a fucking moron. Do some research and get the facts before you spout off with a bunch of fiction like that. He did NOT download anything. Ever. And he was CLEARED OF ALL CHARGES. As of now he is on no registries and never EVER was into any kind of child porn.

    Your defamatory remark is pure bullshit and someone should take you out to an alley somewhere and shove twinkies up your nose. Fucktard.

    The Who is the greatest rock band in history, and Pete Townshend is a fucking phenominal human being who has accomplished more wonderful things in his lifetime than an uneducated fool like you could ever dream to. Period. So STFU.

    God I hate stupid people.

    Oh my God. Please don't talk about The Who like you have ANY idea who they are. I basically toured with that band in 2006, got to hang out with the band a few times (time of my life!) and it's really no secret that Pete and Roger don't get along. Basically, it's like they're brothers who can't stand each other at times. When they toured in 2006 they flew in different planes… I mean talk about extreme. But yeah… lol I love how you fucking think you know one thing about them. Go and listen to Madonna a bit more and STFU about the real music.

    Who cares? Its the fucking WHO. Being the greatest powerpop/rock and roll band in the world, they can do whatever they want. If Keith Moon were alive he could fart on a snare drum and people would pay $150 a ticket to hear it. Half your readers probably wouldn't know a Who song if it crawled up their leg and bit their dick off if it wasn't for that CSI show. Fuck you!



  62. 62

    they've NEVER really gotten along. they have a total professional respect and admiration for one another…but they've never said they were friends. even in their heyday with Moon & Entwhistle they had knock-down drag out fights of legend.

    1. Pete Townshend NEVER downloaded any child pornography!
    2. He was cautioned (as is the practice in the UK; this doesn't mean innocent or guilty.
    3. Scotland Yard confiscated over 13 computers from Pete's home and office, and guess what? NO CHILD PORNOGRAPHY!!!
    4. HE was proven INNOCENT and ROGER DALTREY was one of the FIRST "famous" people to come out in Pete's defense!!!
    5. Pete Townshend has one of the biggest hearts in Rock and Roll; he supports so many charitable organizations it makes my head spin. Pete goes on tour for Roger and the rest of the crew, as well as for the fans….he doesn't need the money or want to "tour", but he does it for everyone else
    6. Pete is not "the guitarist" for THE WHO, he is the BIG ASSED BRAIN of THE WHO….I say Roger should perform whatever new music Pete comes up with–
    7. Keith and John are missed, but their spirits are ALWAYS there when THE WHO are on stage—if you haven't seen them perform since Keith died, or later after John passed, you don't know what you are missing…and I feel sorry for you!
    THE WHO ARE THE SOUL OF ROCK AND ROLL!!!

    Now get the f**k on with it!!

    Re: whate
    As part of the Operation Ore investigations, Townshend was cautioned by the police in 2003 after acknowledging a credit card access in 1999 to the Landslide website alleged to advertise child pornography. Townshend had been campaigning against child pornography. The police searched his house and confiscated 14 computers and other materials and after a four-month forensic investigation confirmed that they had found no evidence of child abuse images. Consequently, the police offered a caution rather than pressing charges, issuing a statement: "After four months of investigation by officers from Scotland Yard's child protection group, it was established that Mr Townshend was not in possession of any downloaded child abuse images.

    A later investigator stated that Townshend was "falsely accused". After obtaining copies of the Landslide hard drives and tracing Townshend's actions, investigative journalist Duncan Campbell wrote in PC Pro Magazine, "Under pressure of the media filming of the raid, Townshend appears to have confessed to something he didn't do." Campbell states that their entire evidence against Townshend was that he accessed a single site among the Landslide offerings which was not connected with child pornography.

    They have never really got along with each other by their own admissions. They have *always* made it work though because The Who is greater then each individual member. They realized that long ago and that is one of the things that makes them great a great band. Sorry you wouldn't see that kind of selflessness with these kids today.

    who the hell are you people to talk about the who?
    THE WHO is the only band that deserves respect. If they get along or not that's not your problem, they don't owe you anything. and the who's still the who, even without entwistle and moon, because after all, townshend's the one who did everything anyways.
    and to be honest, none of u can say anything because if u had any knowledge in music, u wouldn't be talking shit. so u all go back to ur lil' wayne crap, and hannah montana show, and let them do their thing, because no one else does it better. ROCK.

    Oh come on. These guys are really close friends. Sure they've fought, but isn't that normal? This is from Pete's Blog:

    "A fan sent me a card today commiserating with me over a row I am supposed to have had with Roger, as reported by the New York Times and Perez Hilton. There was, is, no row.

    Roger and I are better friends today than we have ever been. It seems that's not what the press want to hear. Like so many truths that seem so tricky for people to swallow about The Who, this is one of them."
