The frontman of one of the greatest bands of all time tells the story of his rise from nothing to rock 'n' roll megastar, and his wild journey as the voice of The Who. “It’s taken me three years to unpack the events of my life, to remember who did what when and why, to separate the myths from the reality, to unravel what really happened at the Holiday Inn on Keith Moon’s 21st birthday,” says Roger Daltrey, the powerhouse vocalist of The Who. The result of this introspection is a remarkable memoir, instantly captivating, funny and frank, chock-full of well-earned wisdom and one-of-a-kind anecdotes from a raucous life that spans a tumultuous time of change in Britain and America. Born during the air bombing of London in 1944, Daltrey fought his way (literally) through school and poverty and began to assemble the band that would become The Who while working at a sheet metal factory in 1961. In Daltrey’s voice, the familiar stories—how they got into smashing up their kit, the infighting, Keith Moon’s antics—take on a new, intimate life. Also here is the creative journey through the unforgettable hits including My Generation, Substitute, Pinball Wizard, and the great albums, Who’s Next, Tommy, and Quadrophenia. Amidst all the music and mayhem, the drugs, the premature deaths, the ruined hotel rooms, Roger is our perfect narrator, remaining sober (relatively) and observant and determined to make The Who bigger and bigger. Not only his personal story, this is the definitive biography of The Who.

'Before the sixties, you were a child and then you were a man. You went to school and then you went to work. That changed. Our generation changed it.' Roger Daltrey is the voice of a generation, and this is his story. This is the story of his tempestuous school days and his expulsion, age 15, thanks to his authoritarian headmaster, Mr Kibblewhite. That could have been where the story ended, as the life of a factory worker beckoned, but then came rock and roll. Making his first guitar from factory off-cuts, Roger formed a band that would become The Who, one of the biggest bands on the planet. This is the story of My Generation, Tommy and Quadrophenia, of smashed guitars, exploding drums, cars in swimming pools, fights, arrests and redecorated hotel rooms, but also how all those post-war kids redefined the rules of youth. This is not just a hilarious and frank account of more than 50 wild years on the road, it is the definitive story of The Who and of the sweeping revolution that was British rock 'n' roll.

Thanks a Lot Mr Kibblewhite: My Story by Roger Daltrey: Conversation Starters The Who's rise to popularity coincided with the sexual revolution. Roger Daltrey's girlfriend got pregnant when he was 20; he married her and lived with her. But he eventually left to become a rockstar. Daltrey recounts how the band tried to make the group stand out from the countless rock groups during their time. It was having their own style that distinguished them, Daltrey thought, including wearing op art t-shirts and Carnaby Street mod clothes. It was Keith Moon however who made The Who famous. Daltrey is the voice of a generation. His generation was the first "to rebel, to step out of the shadows of the Second World War...to invent the concept of the teenager." His memoir is the story "of how the postwar generation redefined the rules of youth." The music industry was born out of the postwar generation. Thanks A Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite is written by The Who lead vocalist Roger Daltrey, a 2008 Kennedy Center Honoree and a 1990 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee.
