A Scottish couple will be telling the tale of when The Who’s Roger Daltrey crashed their wedding for a long time to come.
The iconic frontman says “My voice is still in good shape.”
“The Who, we’ll always have Pino [Palladino] on bass, I’m sure, and if the music is suitable for Zak [Starkey] on the drums, then great. I don’t know. The Who is Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey. And the echoes of John [Entwistle] and Keith [Moon] will always reverberate whenever we play. I can’t tell you who we’ll use if we make a new album, until I hear the music.”

“We have recorded a piece of music that is a fabulous ending for the Olympics… and just shows the great music that has come out of this country,” Daltrey said. “This country has put some fabulous music out into the world.”
“What I remember of the size of Mick Jagger’s penis — I remember it as being huge and extremely tasty,” Townshend said. “I don’t remember anything about Roger’s… and wouldn’t dare to mention it. Let’s hope that makes the Internet!”
