AUDIO: The Who's Pete Townshend (1989)

Mat Snow, Rock's Backpages Audio, 1989

Mr Townshend talks at length about what drives him creatively; the ossification of US classic rock radio; his resentment that songs like 'Won't Get Fooled Again' overshadow more personal work; his belief in the status of rock as art, and the death of the Who as a creative force.
