Mr Kibble White Mice Story Roger Daltry. Welcome to the show man. I WANNA start by going way back to pre who you were born during the blitz but not the one that most people think of it was what the V one rocket blitz at the end Yeah the people don't realize. The Bliss was on the east end of London which was on the dock area and we lived in west London but in nineteen forty. Four Hitler suddenly least his be one bombs on this which were like a jet engine propelled missile coming. And then it would start when everybody everybody's to just run because you never knew where for and that was kind of Code mini-blitz Operation Steinbach and this was nine hundred. Forty four an the twenty ninth of February where my mom started labor and she was determined was not going to be a leap year by jury. One of these areas so it must have been really hairy time because I. I can't imagine what my parents my whole family and every other family in Britain must have gone through through years to kind of go down a shelter comeback out and half the street will be missing just rubble and the similarity that un-american kind of draw for it on your shows apart from a kind of bloom bombs fell on the West Coast is nine eleven. Of course and yeah. Can you imagine the trauma that that goes? Well they were going down the shelters and coming up to that for almost five years. Yeah so you can imagine what it did to them. And you talk about the toll that it took on your parents but you also say that what they went through in the forties actually set the stage for your generation and what you guys would create in the sixties. Explain how that evolved through in the photo were by the war destroying everything we had no option to build London was level book. But what it did for us. It gave us a blank canvas of the mind who we were at generation coming up which became the first adolescent denies generation with a little bit of spare cash to spend his blank canvas to paint on and then from your country along comes over and of course every every young eleven twelve thirteen year old preview bessant into puberty youngster in England Mile. Wanted to be over his every female. Want you to give him a Hug. Very picky so we couldn't be but we we immediately gum from these very straight short back and sides haircuts rushed out to the bathrooms out of the bar of soap and slick to hear back because we couldn't afford anything like any kind of hair treatment to get the same look but the soap worked wonders so Saturday we were an and then along came. Mrk This music. Which was American early American folk song lead belly songs and chain gangs. Kong's APPALACHIA songs. Which was that were presented in? Our country is a musical skiffle by a guy here. But you have roots music right. Yeah and Lonnie Donnegan was the one you know a source of world that what what a dream existence that Mark B. Be Singing with already knew. I could sing because I being church choir. But when I saw Lonnie Donnegan. He sang songs and a Nikon of spoke to us in a different way and the way he sang them by the why he didn't look cool. Used to come on Edina jacket and a bow tie. It was way. He sang the songs he was. Singing changed on songs of plane. These are songs of anger. There was other stuff going on. Words Lonnie was. The one. Made me think I can do this. I I like to do this because long. Used to throw his head back off. Leisler someone just let rip just like Gospel Music uh-huh became something much deeper in the white touch me so every an- and the great thing about that music was that everybody could just get some kind of instrument you know. I made my first talk. We could have by it so I made my first kind of Acoustic Guitar by Copying One. Somebody lent my dad so I could get the size of hidden and look how it was made and I learned the free coast of which you could play most of these skiffle songs and of course. Why don't you get a guitar? Learn three chords and can start singing our songs. Someone else picks up something starts banging it. You get a washboard on some thimbles and you can get a rhythm section going on a tea chest which was a kind of two foot. Maybe two foot six square plywood box with a string fruita middle of the top open in the bottom a broomstick and a piece of string. You could make that sound every bit as good as the Double Bass. Yeah it's kind of fat Albert and his Junk Yard Band You. Yeah yes ban on every street very quickly had a school band. And that's where the the WHO. Oh my what became the WHO started. I had these my own from school. Harry Wilson. He very soon came in as a drama. When we we decided we move up from the washboard a real drum kit and then it slowly slowly progressed pro sixties Ya. Yeah and I suppose there plenty of people who might assume that the WHO began with Pete Townsend. But you started the band when you were in. What high school and somewhere along the way he auditioned and you brought him on. What did you think of Pete when he first met him? Well when it first came because you knew them before that yeah I will. I recognize them from school. I A year younger than me but Labor to kind of characters that you just could not hide in a crowd. I would nice now. That's that's the only way I can conduct. Explain Charisma had it. Even then I had it and I stood out in a crowd. You can hide them in crowd of five thousand especially Pete who who knows at the time was extremely prominent because we were just coming out of food rationing we incidentally nine hundred forty. Five was the worst year of the whole year when the war was over we had even less food for the first eighteen months because we had to share what little we had with Germans. A loaf of white bread was was it towards the middle of nineteen forty five consisted of half a loaf of chalk. Just my gut them. The amount and that's what we've been federal anyway. So I'd noticed them at school went an and the first one join me was John. Entwistle lived around the corner and I bumped into him on the street. Coming home from the sheet metal works factory where I worked and he was carrying a home-made Bass Guitar and I thought well some of my own kind of mentality you because I already made my first Electric Guitar by this time and I talk to John and he said he was in a band. He played trumpet most of the time but he was learning the Spice Guitar and he made himself. It was it wasn't much better than my one if if as good and I invited he you arguing the band. This has banned. And you know it's really good and we few youth clubs and things said to ask him if he was getting paid and he now he said you allotted yes was live through teeth so he invited me along. Sorry I invited him along to. The next rehearsal was abandoned. It was quite obvious John was a musical talent. There was no doubt about it. He Has. He had a musicality about him immediately. Obvious to me and he became vice play and at the time we used to have used to be on lead guitar. We had another guy call rage on rhythm guitar and he wasn't very good tool and John on base We have more make Harry on drums and we had a singer calling And we were kind of doing what cliff Richard Songs which the British all this ritual very soft and a little bit to a year announcing us. He was cliff Richard. We didn't but anyway after about six weeks said No. We're not GONNA get anywhere with reg on this rhythm guitarist. I know someone who would fit perfectly in his band and I said older. Yeah who's that? And he said what he's Pete and he's in Jabs jazz band with. He was in the jazz band with me and he played the Banjo. He said he's a great guitar player. Solace home bring him along them so we brought him a longer next week and there.

This is where I can really I can work with all you guys, and we can all work together and take some chances. Well, you. Yeah. We need to get an original shown to do. We went.

Simha less right, slim Harpo. That's right. Pete meeting sit down with become through those lyrics. This is going to be a month song. So basically plagiarized it. He's just to melody and rewrote this song. On the face, which was a multi. Be a facial snappy dresser. Yeah. Yeah. Style thing. Yeah. And so that became singles a group called the high numbers, which he convinced we incidentally, the band. We were though. Yeah. We were the tools that was the first one was the first name, then we were the who. Yeah. Then Pete meeting convinces to become the high numbers the high numbers to be this mode band. Yeah. After the hoop. You had the who before the high number that. Yeah. So we said. Became the high numbers. And sure enough. What it did it saw it to attract this model? We saw in the face record. Plus fat bodies time is into the full feedback. Right starting destructive buying into speak. Yes. No destruction yet. But really getting some sounds very very unusual to sounds Jimi Hendrix copied off of him. He became of more famous than he was I was so what happened that were you at that show when Hendrik showed up to would you want in the first time he went to well Hendrix, was we we. We were supposed to have forty percent of track records. Yeah. Not that we ever go anything. But I mean. I have a letter from Chris Stemp? The for the label which was the label which Jimmy was into in. So technically, we should've attempts. We never saw her up LA Di penny anyway. But I heard that when he came like who's talking to might have been Terry read about that the first performance that Chas who is who is the guy from the. The first one that blazes. And we will everyone was right. It was just stunning. He go to that place anyways. And he was at the back at the bar and Hendrix is on stage and Brian Jones came through the audience of the bar and he walked up to Terry Reid. And he said, it's terrible. If there the flooding and Terry what are you talking about the water on the floor interior? What are you talking about all of the guitar players crying? They're all crying. That's froyo draws. Yeah. I know. It was stunning. I was glad I wasn't. It gets player that diet. He will stunning. He was stunned by Clapton was there and page. Everybody's there was there was Evian's there. What was Pete's reaction? What was your reaction? I was just amazed at this guy. So prime such great shown here, and and the bam was algal Mitch Mitchell on the drums and no reading on the Bice, and I don't get enough credit because again, how they manage to find that chemistry. Those Jimmy Jimmy could be incredibly unpredictable when he's playing. Could be playing one thing. One minute. Switch on the blink of an eye of Brown. Yeah. Yeah. But those guys would stay with him every bit. Yeah. Yeah. But you guys do we do it too. Those who guys kind of never got any credit tool, but I were incredible vanished. Mitchell's drumming was phenomenal. Yeah. No ratings vice plan, you listen to he sticks with Jimmy every the way. Yeah. Amaechi I'd seems I keep is is similar in terms of his momentum. And how he'll play Mitch came from the same area of us. We. In london. We we knew guys Rony would cause number any Rony would since he was fifteen years old..

"Renews automatically cancels anytime. Okay. Good. Let's do the show. All right. Let's do this. How are you? What the fuckers what the fuck buddies? What the fuck stirs? What's happening? I'm Marc Maron. This is my podcast W T F broadcasting from midtown Manhattan in a hotel room with a living room. I'm not saying it's nice, but it's a mid sized sweet. But I'm here for two weeks. So, you know, it's nice to have a little room sitting in a couch on a couch, and it is in mind that is the wrong fabric for a hotel room. I don't like the fabric. When it just, you know, what couches are no towel rooms, generally, not great. But I think many of you know, my feelings on that that generally if you're sitting on furniture and the hotel room, you should be wearing clothing aerobic or perhaps put a towel down. And I'm not a germaphobe. It's just that. I have to assume that if these couches could speak. I'm not sure I'd want to know. And how often do they clean the couch? I don't know. I don't know. This is an observation. I think that was once put in my head years ago by Todd berry joke to be honest with you about bedspreads, and yes, do not send me the pictures of what those. Those special infrared cameras of hotel room couches and sheets. And I don't want him. I'm here for a while. I'm Doug in not afraid of germs. I'm on a not need to know basis with what the bedding and the couches have been through. I'm just taking proper precautions some maybe maybe I won't. Maybe I won't maybe I'll live on the edge and sit on the hotel room couch with my bare. But before I leave my might do that today on the show from a band called the who Roger Daltry is here. I had a nice chat with Mr. Daltry back at the garage. I didn't know what to expect. You don't know. I don't know a lot of times from these older rock dudes. But when you really think about Daltry, whether you're a who guy you're not a who guy, you know, if you who tunes, but you also have to realize that Roger Daltry was a king among a Rockstars. He was an archetypal rock singer. He is one of the. The the guy who created modern rock singing. He think about a rock singer. You'd think about Daltry you'd think about plant that era. You know what I'm saying? So fucking whom and I talked to Roger Daltry about his book, it's called thanks a lot Mr. Kibble, white my story. And so just so you don't get let down I didn't. I didn't even think to fuck and ask them who Mr. Kibble white is. But that's my style. That's who. I am. I didn't even think to do it. It's the title of the goddamn book. I'm not beating myself up. I didn't think to do it. So. Another thing. I want to address if I could while I sit here and after telling you that the other day that I was sort of isolated here by my own doing and trying to justify it as being okay because I'm working I want to thank the people who emailed me. I do read them specially in film, isolating in a hotel room and midtown Manhattan. I'll read the emails. Thank you for the suggestions. Thank you for inviting me places. Thank you for telling me what to do what I should do. I appreciate that. It was all done with a good hearted concern and desire to get my head in the right place who doesn't need that. I hope I do that for all of you sometimes. So I'll tell you something I know for sure if I could in these times, we need good journalism more than ever it's vital to our survival.

"Yeah, who don't have that? They just have great music more than there's no sense of danger to them like the stones in the most cliche, yes. In the most cliche, it's the most sort of cliche like dumb ass. Dumbed down sense. But that's true. I mean, because that's what even in hip hop on people reference being a rock star. They mean like Mick Jagger, which is weird though. They awesome. Do me like Keith moon, they don't know who keeps moving right, but they they do mean the thing is Keith moon was the ultimate hotel rebbe, but he wasn't sexy, right? But he was the drummer and those stories almost feel separate from the legacy of the who it's legacy of Keith in a weird way to quote p. We were the first band of the bar and find the distance to the stage too far which actually now maybe he was trying to use actually trying to say like, hey, we were fuck ups to which they were. But yeah, there's just something I, it's just a and I think there's also, you know, there's a suspicion of big arena rock, but listen like the. Bands that you would say, okay, they wouldn't exist without our Pearl Jam. YouTube will also are not considered super cool, but you know, at least back, you could argue they gave birth to power pop, and punk and arena rock. All three different things. Yes, I've gone around arguing that. I think I think it's very true. They definitely invented power pop. Yes, and even prog and some crazy ways you could argue. So there's so many different things that came out of yet. They don't get the credit for much of it. He is just starving an alley. I'm not saying that I've seen. Zepplin looms, so large and the who, and zeppelin in the seventies, whereas big and since nineteen eighty gone in such different directions out, say since nineteen ninety ninety one, I think from the moment that John Bonham died and they split and it was just frozen in time. It's yeah, it's it's hard to say, but yes, I know what you're saying and the general interest in the rock canon as a whole has declined. But even relative to that, this is peculiar thing and and it cannot stand this aggression. Can I say, well, we should mention a messy set of ugly allegations against towns and that we won't dig into it. But you know if it doesn't appear to be really based in in any truth, it's just a really unfortunate ugly thing that you idiots to talk about, but that didn't help either tar them. They had a Broadway play on full house. When Danny was singing the song to embarrass daughters, he was singing a song, it's they body. Like with dad's like in a lot of ways? Yes. So it's unfortunate association, and you know that said there's never been a Quadrophenia musical on Broadway. They tried one on like the West End. I think I feel like you never know. You never know. Things could have a moment. I think Tommy, I think the culture isn't probably not gonna have another Tommy moment though, like next year is the fiftieth so God knows whether under the. Yeah, and I think Tommy, I think there's a the who have a strange story, and that's one of the reasons I love them is this is a strange unruly story. I mean, Tommy has way too much weight in the history of the who is the stones. Don't have anything like that. Have you know it's as if you know their satanic majesties request became bigger than the the stones. I mean, it's a bad comparison Thomas much. They were damaged by it and they can't flogging it over and over again a movie, a tour in the eighties, play. Again, they, they kept flogging it, but if you listen to something like young man's blues from live at Leeds like that for me is the very essence of of the who as much as you know, it's funny Stevens says the best who album and I cut to argue with this to face and he really believes he believes.

"I think for while it was very hard from 'cause the songs they were all written by Pete and the drummer. So it was so flamboyant and send so famous and everything for the an Pete sing. So, well, if if you're Pete's demos of the songs are fantastic. So for Roger, to find his voice was a long process. It took about seven years in that band to really stablishment self as the firm singer that he did with Tommy the who in the sort of classic rock cannon as perceived by millennials and younger because there is still some currency for a lot of things everyone burst in the stone still have a certain currency among some people. I'm concerned about the who's Outreach to the young generation or because they are very top of the rock cannon. And yet my sense is that for people under thirty that status has slipped even when they look back historically, I think the biggest thing is that zeppelin and the Beatles and Pink Floyd are frozen in the amber of the seventies differ ever young the forever. Great. And the who they kept going, you know, they broke up about seven years in the eighties, but they kept going, they got older. They did endless tours of the same songs. Then Pete sold the songs for two like commercials. It was selling Nissan and thousand or things. So the music was just on TV all the time. It was on on c. s. I it was just sort of everywhere and they lost their cool. It was just always there. I think that I rarely I was going to say, I never I rarely begrudged people or musician's big pay. 'check baton. You basically sold a bunch of these rides and said that, you know, basically buying himself a boat every time. Yeah. And also, you know, every time he did that he didn't have to do the grueling roadwork he would have otherwise had to do, and I don't begrudge at the same time for their legacy. It's definitely, I think it's hurt them, but he, I think he made a decision is like, well, I'm not eventually I won't be around for the legacy. Yeah, but I will be running my boat. I have raised this topic to myself. I said, Pete, I hear behind blue is now I think of other things besides songs using insomnia places, and he was just like, that's your problem. That's not my problem, you know? So he doesn't keyed, doesn't care. And I think a big thing that hurt them is that Roger in eighty round two thousand nine or so was having major vocal problems and yet surgery eventually which which caused a huge difference. But they played the Super Bowl at the peak of his uncle problems. So in front of the biggest audience, they ever had his voice wasn't there. He we were talking about this yesterday, the snow like the Super Bowl is a doer. Di occasion also came at a time when they were starting to become skeptical about like, why do we have to keep hearing all this old rock when you're facing that attitude, which is understandable attitude, you better bring it. You're talking about one of the greatest live bands of all time who had a bad night on one of the biggest nice of their career. If there was ever a lingering impression left on generation. Unfortunately, it's that and that sucks. And you know, I also think the who are kind of I don't wanna over. Generalize, they only have always had female fans, but they're a little bit of a dude band. There are perceived that way there. Roger has a macho aspect him. Pete is not macho. They're actually a pretty arty band, but I think it's kind of a misconception. But I think they're perceived as kind of just like macho dude rock, which is shame is more complicated, and I think that they never had lunch crossover hits, pop radio. There's never like a beast burden type who song that got got outside of the rock audience. They lot in many big hits, but they were rockets. I would also suggest that they are plagued by something that originally plagued them back in the early sixties, which is there's not really acute one. You know your trouble when they kind of put your drummer up in front to be the cute one in the pictures. I, it's, it's just the picture of Jimmy page swigging from Jack Daniels spot oil, and it looked so perfect or the iconic bad ass -ness of Mick, Keith. That translates across generation?.
