In an interview with Rolling Stone Pete Townshend of The Who made some surprising comments about the two original members of the band who have passed away. The two members who have died were drummer Keith Moon (who died in 1978 of an overdose) and bassist John Entwistle (who died in 2002 of a heart attack brought on by cocaine use).
“It’s not going to make WHO fans very happy, but thank God they’re gone, because they were fucking difficult to play with. They never, ever managed to create bands for themselves. I think my musical discipline, my musical efficiency as a rhythm player, held the band together.”
Seems like a very dumb comment to make as far as I’m concerned. Ballsy, but stupid. I should also mention that Pete Townshend is on the sex offender registry, but no one seems to care about that.
Who’s death brought you joy TGO?
