Pete Townshend: I Wish I'd Never Joined The Who
Guitarist wishes he'd been a solo artist
In a new new interview for the The Who: The Ultimate Music Guide, made by the makers of Uncut, Townshend revealed that he may have done things a little differently if he had the chance again when he was starting out.
"What would I have done differently? I would never have joined a band," he said. "Even though I am quite a good gang member and a good trooper on the road, I am bad at creative collaboration."
He added: "I would have made a much more effective solo performer and producer working the way Brian Eno has worked. I would be less physically damaged today."
"My ears, right wrist and shoulder would work more efficiently. In all other respects I am in extremely good shape."
