Pete Townshend Lost Two Days After Daltrey Punch
The Who guitarist says that his bandmate is a "one punch man"
Speaking to The Times, Townshend said that tensions boiled over when he tried to order Daltrey to remain in the studio when he wanted to leave during the mixing sessions for Quadrophenia.
Townshend said: "I walked into the studio, having not slept for two days after doing the final mixes. I had been in my big Mercedes limousine drinking brandy. Roger was in the studio, having waited for me for the last five hours. 'We've done it' I shouted at him. 'Yeah? Well I've been here since one o'clock and I'm going'. 'You can't fucking go,' I said. He pushed me out the way, I spat at him, and I got knocked out."
He continued: "When I came round an hour later my memory was gone for two days. He's a one-punch man, Roger."
