Even with all health officials asking everyone to stay home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, especially the elderly, The Who frontman Roger Daltrey refuses to follow that recommendation. In an interview with The Express the 76 year-old singer said that he would “clap all day long” for the nation’s healthcare workers for their amazing job.
About not staying at home during quarantine, Roger Daltrey said:
“I live in the countryside so it’s a lot easier. I cannot imagine what it must be like stuck in London in a flat with a couple of kids. I’m not moaning about anything but equally as a 76-year-old, I’m not going to be told by anybody to stay in. Go f*** yourselves. We can’t wrap ourselves in cotton wool,” he added.
“For every academic that’s telling us one thing on the science, there’s any equally academic scientist on the other side of the fence saying: ‘No, you’re wrong and this what we should do. No wonder the public’s confused, no wonder the Government’s confused and no wonder that. All around the world, there are different results on how we’re getting through it.”
“I’m very proud of us for that, and again our frontline clinicians and clinical care workers, I’ll clap all day long for.”
The Who tour canceled
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Who 2020 tour had to be canceled and the band said:
“The remaining dates on The Who: Moving On! US Tour will no longer be taking place. Tickets will automatically be refunded at point of purchase. And you’ll be the first to know when our new tour dates are announced. Thank you for understanding.”
“We hope you are all in good health and looking out for each other. We look forward to seeing you at a venue in the very near future. In the meantime, stay safe.”
