Watch a trailer for the imminent biography

Who I Am: A Memoir is published in the UK on 11 October and a new brief preview trailer for the book has been released.

Townshend says of Who I Am: "This book is not a vanity for me. It is an essential rite of passage. I know I am good at what I do as a performer and composer, but since my early teens, I have been happiest when writing. Writing is my principal daily occupation.”

"Rock 'n' Roll is a tough career, however cynically or comically it is portrayed by its detractors,” Pete continued. "I am lucky to be alive and to have such a crazy story to tell, full of wild adventures and creative machinations. I am happy that I am able to write my book myself, in my own 'voice' that many readers will be hearing for the first time.”

"I am not my favourite subject, that will always be art and music, but whenever I write about my life and work, I learn something,” added the guitar icon.
