Daltrey remembers Entwistle on anniversary
Roger Daltrey looks back over his career with The Who on TeamRock Radio tonight as the band get set to mark their 50th anniversary next year.
And on the Classic Rock Magazine Show he shares a hilarious anecdote about late bassist John Entwistle, who died eleven years ago today.
Speaking to presenter Nicky Horne, Daltrey reflects: “We’re all old-age pensioners together now, which is great – when we started we didn’t think it would last to the end of the week.
“Then we thought, ‘Well, it might last to the end of the month.’ Then we get to a year, two, and before you know where you are you’re at ten years, then 25, and here we are – next year’s the 50th. It’s wonderful.
“We are a family; we’re a very close-knit bunch. When you think of what we’ve had to live through and deal with… to stay sane after 50 years is a pretty real achievement!”
Hear Daltrey’s story about Entwistle on the Classic Rock Magazine Show tonight from 6pm on TeamRock Radio, available throughout the UK on DAB and around the world online.
