Happy Birthday to Pete Townshend, who turns 75 today (May 19th)!!! Townshend, who is the primary creative force behind the Who, wrote nearly all of the band's music and has been responsible for crafting the stories and themes behind such rock classics as Tommy, Who's Next, and Quadrophenia.
The Who has rescheduled its entire spring tour of the UK and Ireland, pushing the orchestral-backed dates forward a full year to the spring of 2021. Pete Townshend is holed up in his country home studio, remixing the Who's track “Beads On A String” for single release. In addition to other projects, Townshend revealed he's begun writing the followup to the Who's 2019 album, WHO.
The album was released on December 6th, and entered the Billboard 200 at Number two behind Roddy Ricch's chart-topping Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.
