About Roger Daltrey
He is the man, the myth, the legend. Who? Roger Daltrey, that's who.
Daltrey first assembled the group that would become one of the most well-known English rock bands of all time while at Acton Cunty School in 1961. The story goes that he recruited John Entwistle and later agreed to his proposal that Pete Townshend come on board. Thus would mark the start of a career that would ultimately earn Daltrey the title of "one of the gods of rock and roll."
Even as the founder and lead singer of The Who, Daltrey has also maintained a successful musical career as a solo artist. In 2008, he even ranked at number 61 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest singers of all time. It's as much to do with his powerful voice as it does with his energetic stage presence.
Daltrey actually began taking the solo route back in 1973 with an album titled "Daltrey," which served as a bit of a departure from the Who's hard rock sound. It was followed in 1975 by "Ride a Rock Horse," two years after that by "One of the Boys." By 1983, when the Who officially disbanded, Daltrey switched his solo sound fully to hard rock, and has towed the line even as The Who has reunited and played together on and off.
In more recent years, Daltrey has taken back to the road with a lineup that included Townshend's brother Simon, and Daltrey would retain this band for private and public performances (most notably for a 2011 Cancer Trust performance). In November 2013, he accompanied guitarist Wilko Johnson on sessions for an album entitled "Going Back Home." Featuring reinterpretations of material from throughout Johnson's career, the album was launched with a show at Shepherd's Bush Empire in February 2014.
