You really have to be fit to do Rock & Roll

Curator’s Notes:

This is less of a jock oriented aircheck than a great interview with The Who frontman Pete Townshend. Pete talks about his career, his love for theater and how that intertwines with his rock opera “Tommy”. It’s an interesting listen for fans of the band.

This interview was in conjunction with a station sponsored concert where local musicians could play along with Townshend. I can’t find details of the event, thus, I can’t nail down the exact date.
