The Who frontman claimed that his old pals make touring worthwhile as they join him in front of thousands of fans “once the music starts”.
But the singer claims that the pair always come alive for him once he picks up his mic.John Entwistle passed away in bed with a stripper in Nevada in 2002 after an all night cocaine binge (Image: Richard E. Aaron/Redferns)
Roger, 75, revealed their presence is the only thing that keeps him on the road.
He said: “I hate the touring. I hate the travelling, the schlepping, the hotels.“But once you get on the stage, it’s all worth it. There’s something about the music, and for me, because Keith and John passed so early, Keith especially, even though Zak and Pino Palladino don’t play exactly the same way as Keith did and John did, once the music starts, John and Keith are back with me. It’s wonderful.”
The veteran rocker also revealed that his signature move of swinging his microphone can come in handy for battering rowdy crowds at his gigs.
Keith Moon died in 1978 after accidentally overdosing on sedatives – John Entwistle died in a hotel room for overdose of cocaine.
Roger talks on the new new Who Record
[Pete] let me have some freedom and let me change some things, change the timing of the songs and other little ones details. And I have to tell you that after being very skeptical, I am now incredibly optimistic. I think we made our best Quadrophenia album. ” This is a declaration of love for music and for one’s profession. “Pete is a fabulous songwriter and is still ahead”. It is with words that Roger concluded his interview.
