Happy Birthday to Pete Townshend, who turns 77 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.
Out now is Pete Townshend's new two-hour Audible Original mini-biography, titled Somebody Saved Me. The Townshend confessional is named after his 1982 solo favorite featured on All The Beat Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes.
Townshend is currently out on the road with the Who and plays on Friday (May 20th) at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center.
