Roger Daltrey says The Who might be over

The Who completed six decades on the road in 2022, the band was formed back in 1962 in London, England and became one of the most successful of all time. Since 2001 when the bassist John Entwistle passed away at the age of  57, the only two original members are Pete Townshend (Guitar, vocals, main songwriter) and Roger Daltrey (Vocals).


In an interview with The Times, Daltrey, who will celebrate his 80th birthday next March, talked about The Who saying that “this part of my life is over”. He also says he needs to sit down with Townshend and see what will happen.

“I don’t write the songs. I never did. We need to sit down and have a meeting, but at the moment I’m happy saying that part of my life is over,” the singer said.

The only shows scheduled for The Who in 2024 will happen in March on Roger’s “Teenage Cancer Trust” charity project. They will all happen at the Royal Albert Hall in London on March 18, 20 and 24.

Last December, Pete Townshend, who will celebrate his 79 anniversary in 2024, said a similar thing about the possible end of The Who. In an interview with Record Collector magazine he also said he needed to sit down with Roger and see what would happen next.

“I think it’s time for Roger and I to go to lunch and have a chat about what happens next. Because (the final summer tour stop) shouldn’t feel like the end of anything, but it feels like the end of an era.”

In the past six decades The Who released 12 studio albums and have sold an estimated amount of more than 100 million records worldwide. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 by U2.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
