"I'm Marina Doris Pete. Townsend not only is he the major creative force behind the WHO. He's also released several of his own solo records. He prompted the first known use of the term rock opera. When he wrote the WHO's Tommy he's even credited with being the first person to smashed a guitar on stage but one thing Pete Townsend had never done until now is write a novel earlier this month? He published his first ever ever novel the age of anxiety their plans to turn it into an opera art installation which he says will be his last major solo. Work he's also releasing a new album with the WHO in December called who you'll hear some of the new music from that album and we'll talk about his realization two years ago. That is famed rock opera. Tommy it was actually about him and you'll hear about his new book. I asked Pete how much of that new book is about him. I really really wanted to write a proper fiction novel at lost I've done most of my staffers songwriter. And I was warned upon my editor the if I went too far into General Fitch and people would innocence. Lose me I am a celebrity. I am known and for what I do in a rock band so with this book to I've tried to stay in familiar territory so that people I I'm not taunting people to try and find in this. If they try and refund man this they might they might not but I don't think on on really the now there are moments in it they get a little salaciously desert anything in there that you know knowing that people know who you are where you're maybe uncomfortable writing it is there. Is there anything you had reservations about. Putting in the book no the salacious issue spits if you like are are really about The that to propel the narrative that the narrator there is the godfather of a young musician. He's not a musician himself. He's actually an art dealer and I wanted to have a reason for him. I'm to write the book. I wanted him to be an isolated lonely voice. Somebody who had married lost his wife Was often in the company of of younger people younger men and younger women. And why would I do Well it's where I am. I'm in the music business. I'm seventy five coming up to seventy five years old and I'm surrounded by young people so so unfamiliar with that world. I'm familiar with the machinery over on the man in my seventies you occasionally gets off on a date by a younger woman so I'm kind abuse to that and I'm married now again so I had my little burst of freedom of familiar with the language in a sense but the the reason I wanted to Bring this this. The narrator is accused by somebody. That's close to him of the possibility that he has raped. Somebody and I started this book in two thousand night. Before the me too movement kicked-off he's not a celebrity himself. He's just an Taylor. And whether or not this accusation is true or not is kind of left to the reader to decide so in a sense it does Jack into the current Me Too movement but it was never meant to. I didn't didn't mean it to Certainly I don't expect to be accused of anything like that myself. The narrator is sort of given to be a bit of an unreliable liable narrator by the end. You kind of aren't sure if he knows if he's being completely honest. It's an interesting way to finish that book that way in this time. I think that's right. I think I think also with the with the way that the narrator tells the story he's really trying to to tell the story of a very wholesome couple of people they are the young musician. Who who is his Godson who has a kind of psychic connection with his audience which allows him to in a sense Jack into orange his and it disables his work so he leaves his career behind and meets a young woman who who is an equestrian she runs a start and these two stories were loosely based on people that I know? Hopefully I suppose what I was doing was trying to create. Ah Interwoven flowing. Plot had more than one strand so this is my first novel. And it's the first time I tried to properly plot something and I'm as quickly say that in in music. We try not to do that. We try not to plot things. We try not to create please twists we. Try Not to close the story for you so if you hear a song for example via a somebody that you love and do you listen to. The lyric won't good music. Particularly popular. Music does less so without pro good popular. Music does is allow you as the listener to draw the conclusion. And if you like right the ending right of course I mean that plotting out you have done operas or rock operas before concept albums so there is sort of a a parallel there. My name is Rena Dir. You're listening to the World Cafe. I'm joined by Pete. Townsend of the WHO were talking about the WHO's new album called. Who and right now of a pizza new novel age of anxiety and I did notice as I was going through this book that there are some parallels between the book age of anxiety and say Tommy You're rock opera. Not only walter the Godson that you were talking about. Who's in this band? Who has his connection to his audience? He experiences auditory hallucinations. Right are good. Were pushing the Tommy could sense music. Music has great power Plus in this story in both stories is a man who.

I know that he always says that, but he says, look I turned seventy five in a few months while I didn't is that like you said, I worry eight up my voice. I don't wanna do shows. My voice is really bad. And I'm a human being I'm aging this'll be a long tour. He says, look it's very possible. I was being realistic that this is the end. And if my voice goes, I'm done every time, we have you on. And we start talking about these classic rock. Is it starts to get really depressing. I have to tell you Sonny five result. I mean, this group started in nineteen sixty two that's like mad men days. It was like Kennedy was president. I mean, it's like early mad men seasons. And I actually think it's important to point out that Roger is in one of the tougher positions. Because his is a vocal approach. That's all power and. Projection and swagger, and it's not a kind of sitting on a stool kind of thing. Even Mick Jagger weird way doesn't have to like have that belting out from his fucking nuts. Thinned altri told me the one song. He's released sick of doing is full again. I think because the primal scream at the end is killing him. And what else did you take away from all this? I took away that they have very different vision for what his group should be right now, he says that Roger he sees it as one thing and pizzas another and they meet in the middle. And even Pete said that they're a brand. And a lot of ways he says that he will see our concerts that don't know our catalog all that.

It's the why she happens is that you'll tending to do what for example, Dylan and stuff two years and years, which is to do a tune in a way that you want to do it not the way that the fans expect here. Right. You wanna find Nova too? I wanna move onto the curious about that. So what's the status of it was done secret? I don't know anything about it. Yeah. What it was as I said it was a condition. I was not going to sign any contracts to to unless we had immaterial out on this got nothing to do with wanting album. It's got nothing to do with the fact that the who need to know of just purely personal I felt that what was happening for me was dying out. I was listening to the synthesized who can sound beginning a bumper Raleigh thinking oh want you clever boy under twenty four twenty five twenty six last that we did his teen years ago. It was a struggle to do that time that we got it done on. It was got be a rush. So still, you know, I don't really want to go out there and be an occasion, you do Schneider launched from other musicians, particularly young ones off to your crown. And it might be. Yeah. Will you know that going out doing that? Quite sits to the same old shit kind of sense of tighted checkbook cruel off to die gonna Defined? find. Kinda you know on creative on still creative. I'm still raunchy overtime. And so I wanted to commit to Mike an album, and I thought if I commit for wanna do I have to ride the songs notice writing sums I have to really really good demos of the songs to get Roja excited about them. Because Russia is in difficulty is not question about it. You know, I had to help him with his own subtle out. Great. He wanna put it out. And listen to this is fucking great is not such pepper. But it's a great record for a solo artist. Like you to you sink. Right. The choice of songs. He's great. It's the album he put out by the way. I heard just the our base stuff extra stuff the which I like as well anyway. So I push push push to knee heel for Nate's encouragement because he so doubtful about where he stands with his own creative work. And I think he's got the problem that might be singers half. And he doesn't rise song. Sorry, become Ryan. Combined with other people in particular anyway. So I I really need to do good on.

I don't really care if you don't mind this stuff, you have to sing it on your like in ten years time was. But he chewed up and says he's gonna do it's best to sing them. Once he comes in all sick ferried collection of staff, some of its, you know, might Thais is so broad, you know, go from Monday crush this week is our in right is just discovered on, you know, just love his stuff.

"And it will be creative. And there's lots of opportunities to do crazy stuff. But I'm not quite show would be flying. It was still too about sums. It's an exciting time because we're exchanging ideas, but we will probably play a chunk of Tony chunk of quarter failure with okay. And then a selection of songs that suit that kind of arrangement which actually broadens our scope hugely. I think it means that we can do perhaps some of the lighter songs from the launch house years. Who's next year's like Thanh is pulsing and too much of everything those kind of ballot songs, which quite sure. Oh, they lack force when you play the kind of throwaways if you play them in a peak grace hitch destroyed I might flaw. I don't know. So that's where we all. And it'll be the same backing band is the previous tour with Zach and everybody and Pino is now outright that the new year. He went out to work with John Mayer. Yes, Joe was doing alone tour, and we were taking hero obstacle year of. So we might not get peanut bike. I'm on very happy with John. Bon his good. He's not in a pay an individual exceptional. It was a pity that he left when he did because hands I was starting to gel a little bit the Jones good. He's really good. He's really good. He's great looking great personality. He's very elusive. Playa gets a good sound stage. You know, I miss those kind of crise moments of Pino lunacies casually come out with some amazing saying because he was Lewis a fundamentally simple and then occasionally something. But explode, I guess it's the same time. And so it's the tiny fiftieth. So we'd playing songs I've Tommy that you haven't played on recent tours. Are you thinking has structure that Tommy portion, you know, one could talk about this. Now, I have trouble with Tomi. We did it recently. Out the whole wanted to do it for the T night's concert shows that I saw out of bright now, hopefully throw it triggered by when I wrote I wasn't aware of the issues on half posted might be this for another compensation now. Yeah. We play a medley of stuff it won't be anything unusual out. Hey, it'd be like sparks like amazing journey and all that stuff. Right. Then Quadrophenia John. I think that will be a tight medley as well. Both of them will be interesting to do with ochre strike with having abandoned off must say that. When I heard that Roger was doing is to with an orchestra and had drums. I just oh God so difficult to combine drums with strings because of noise spill, but also because strings have a much looser rhythmic syncopation. But everything I've heard about roaches shows. Good from the people that were on it and for people in the audience. I'll got my fingers crossed. You think he might doing fan club shows in the states, maybe to play a few feet, or you know, we should do it. We should really do rather than get op into trying to Broadway stuff, or whatever, you know. We should really just bang into the fake. And you know, I had a friend of mine went into Dylan the beacon last month to month before last and said he was better than they see ages. It was astounding done. That was a big surprise because I suppose to see debt can often be so interested in it. I said it was fantastic yet. There's been happened on this last tour seen him time that we're just shows. They were unreal. Well, that's good engine. He does so much. And you weren't you really want to see him? Enjoy it. You know, what's interesting. I think with Dylan certainly with may in the last five to fifteen years, slowly. But surely realize that happiness is not something that arrives. It's something that you suddenly kind of allow to happen telling my son, he's had a difficult. Couple of months just have faith. You know, when you get to be about sixty Sutton eighth. The cloud lifts I think it's really difficult. And I think it my Popper to dinner yet. So you're tempted to play the beacon with who do you think I'll be like a different kind of love to just not sure quite when we would do it. I think the moment we're committed what the way through to the winter this year..

"But it was kind of a wonky who album it wasn't. I wouldn't call it a real album. It was kind of a Centric for the most part. Yeah. And I was thirteen years ago. And that's only record in the past thirty seven years. Yeah. Those county. Yeah. So they've to or nonstop, but just there's been such a lack of new stuff, but this tour will be largely before the album, and it's likely that the play any new songs on the tour. So what was Pete liking conversation? I found him pretty intimidating honestly, the one time I talked him. I think if he's in the mood. He can be kinda fearsome. It sounds like your experiences a little different. No I had him to be delightful. It's sort of intimidating that you're sitting in his room and Pete Townsend right there eight I'm such a big fan. But it was very light. It was very conversational e talks a lot. He goes off on tangents, though, gotta be careful because a single word will send him on a story. Well, one time out of phone or with him and it lasted longer than the time that I was supposed to formerly interview him in persons. He just talked and talked for like an hour and twenty minutes. Yeah. I think he loves to do interviews. I think that after the history of the whole who like. On way, back the sixties. He likes talk the press end to be unfiltered to sort of be completely honest. Right. He explained to you on winter the entire story of Tommy before he'd ever released anything sixty eight and credible detail, I asked him about playing time and his tour aniversary, and he said to me that he just play a few songs off it. It's so personal him. It's so intense. It's a reflection of such trauma in his past that he has a bit of a breakdown when he tries to play most the songs that's kind of weird in that they played it like a thousand times. But it's been years. He said that they put it once in recent years at the Royal Albert Hall for charity, and he had a breakdown in the middle of doing it. He was telling me. Wow. Yeah. Well, I wanna get to this interview. Let's hear Andy green and Pete Townsend in towns, London home. All right. So tell me roughly that what the plan is for this tour that you're doing this here I took a year or after we played South America, we did desert trip. And then we went to South America who played McComb, then we went to South America last year and ended a pretty busy for me. So I don't Tober I decided to take sabbatical, and I spent a year doing puzzles stuff trying to work out what my happen next of thought Kaime, the notion that I had in certain enjoyed playing and enjoyed does it trip enjoyed South America, Mexico on enjoyed some of the shows that we did in. It's not to say, the identity joy shows in America or the you Kyle Germany or France just that we play their lot. And so there was very novelty.

Andy, flew out to London the other day to talk to towns of the who who announced to Andy to wrong stone that the who are planning to record their first new album in a while that Pete has all the demos ready to go. Weirdly, he didn't wait until they actually recorded. He just went to let Andy no that that they're going to do it. And in a couple minutes, we're going to let you hear Andy green talking to towns. But this is kind of a surprise like down like Andy, we want to have you come out and talk. Yeah. It was surprising. I got called up and told that they're going to go on tour and they have new songs, and they both want to go talk to me about it. So I'm like sounds good. I'll be out there. I was supposed to talk to them both at the same time in hotel room. But then Rogers travel plans change, so I ought to Pete's house. Instead, which was pretty cool. I talked him there for two hours go to Pete's house which. Was like how far out of central London roughly I had to take it was to to blinds toll the end of the tube. Then I walked mile. No kidding. Yeah. So you walk this mile at the end of the mile. You ring the doorbell towns how I was there about ten minutes early, and I didn't want to early but my phone had just died. And I was like oh shit. I can't get back to the to my phone is dead. I was freaking out from they go, wait peaking, just tears my phone. So I got his door at the time, and he answers, and he says, you know, do not or some water. I said, no. But my phone is dead. And he was okay. I can charge it. So we laughed and he had a cord, and I'm like, you beat helpful. That's awesome. He kinda showed you his studio. Yeah. At the end of it. He walked me into the basement where he's huge studio because this was run woods house back in the day. And so did he buy it directly from Ron water? I think in between there other buyers the studio state and Pete helped Ron install the studio with it's in the seventies. Obviously. So the studio was always pizza and away. And he. Points to room, and it was yes. So that's where Ted soup was recorded in everything. It was crazy. And did he have like a bunch of Qataris and stuff there was guitars, venture synthesizers, their stuff everywhere. It was really for a who fan. It was overwhelming to be down there. Yeah. I'm kind of jealous, man. Did he play you any music? He played me about one minute of one song. And what was the deal with that? They don't want me to talk about song specifics yet, which is a bummer. But that was the agreement that I made with them to he rap on. No, no, it was broken. Yeah. There's no rap. But the deal is like they haven't recorded the odham Pete recorded demo. Yeah. He recorded demos that he told me we're very elaborate and very well done and very professional, but he wants Roger to sang songs, obviously. And he sent them off to Roger and hear anything back and was kind of pissed about that. And Roger supposed to talk to spoke them. Yeah. I spoke to him on the phone, but it was supposed to be in person. Right. Yes. Yes. But it was still fine. But the main news that they wanted to get out was this tour that the going out and their payment symphonies, but Pete felt that in order to justify tour. Yeah, he's dead. He said that he's getting sick of the snarky comments from younger bands that other who are good. But there's played it hits. You know, he felt insulted by some people he told me, and he felt the need to prove the world that he can still do this. I personally find that exciting. It's been awhile since their last album, which had at least one son that I really liked on it called. We've gotta hit. And we should actually hear that. The one..
