Saying “I didn’t expect to get this,” Roger Daltry received a royal honor at Buckingham Palace on this day in 2005. He was awarded the Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to Music, the Entertainment Industry and Charity by Queen Elizabeth.
"Actually," noted Roger Daltrey when Forbes pointed out that he and Pete Townshend have been together in the Who for 50 years, "[it's been] 54 or 55. And," laughed Daltrey, "he’s as bloody difficult now as he always was."
Former Dr. Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson says his forthcoming collaboration with Roger Daltrey has a "heavy power-trio sound backing up a singer. It’s a British institution. No one does that better than us."
It's long been trapped in development limbo, but it looks like a movie about the wild life and times of Who drummer Keith Moon might finally be heading for theaters -- with support and creative input from one of Moon's former bandmates, no less.
Dr. Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson is preparing to record one final album and he's chosen Roger Daltrey as his partner. The Who singer met the 66-year-old at an awards show this month, and they have since worked out the details.
Roger Daltrey has always been extremely generous with his time when it comes to charity efforts and organizations, and he's continuing that philanthropic streak this September, when he'll headline Queen's annual AIDS benefit show.
How do you put together a solo album when people are used to hearing your voice used as a conduit for one of rock's greatest songwriters? It's a nice problem to have, but it's also keeping Roger Daltrey from rushing into recording new solo music.
