Liner Notes

Roger Daltrey may not have been over-prepared for his first run of solo performances since The Who broke up, but the media was certainly ready for him. This unedited interview with Ted Utz, recorded backstage before his show at Philadelphia's Tower Theater, focuses on the new tour and new album, but has plenty of random and juicy nuggets mixed in as well. Check out the time stamps below to find a topic of particular interest, or just hang out with Roger backstage and listen start to finish.
