Storms and people passing

  The big storm passed through, not too bad where I live in London, but Rob Lee our webmaster lives by the sea on the south coast and I was worried for him. The storm ended a tumultous few weeks.    Several people important to me have passed away. Peter Kay, a friend and chef […]

Tour Diary: June 10th, 2013 – Dublin

  So we played Dublin and Edge from U2 suggested Roger and I adjust our clothing. More on that later.   It’s been fabulous weather here and that has raised the spirits of all the people we’ve met. The crowd was terrific, and the show was pretty good. Despite the solid commitment to Quadrophenia displayed […]

TOUR DIARY – December 9th, 2012

The Clown who plays Ukelele.   It occurs to me that Roger’s first TCA ‘ambassador’ Sarah Sterner, who tells a funny story about being entertained by a clown playing ukelele when she was recovering from cancer treatment, might not be so funny for the clown in question. She did not sneer at this clown. She […]

Pete Townshend Remembers Frank Barselona

  Frank Barsalona was The Who’s agent in the USA from the beginning almost until the end.

Pete Townshend Remembers Mike Shaw

Mike Shaw worked with The Who for just a few years, from 1964 to 1967, when he had a car crash that rendered him paraplegic, wheelchair bound with limited use of his upper body.   In his time with us before the accident, he ran everywhere in Soho where Track offices were based, like a […]

Three Tributes

 CHRIS STAMP   Chris Stamp wasn’t just a good looking boy. He was tough, kind, creative and fun to be around. I can’t think of anyone with whom it was better to brainstorm. For me, our best idea will always be THE WHO SELL OUT. We got so excited when we figured we could sell […]

TOUR DIARY – November 21st, 2012

  I have been spreading rumours that Rachel and I would be premiering our orchestral version of Quadrophenia at the Royal Albert Hall Teenage Cancer concert in March 2013. Now we have decided that because the Who tour extends into March and probably beyond into April in the UK that it would be too much […]

TOUR DIARY – November 14, 2012

TEEN CANCER AMERICA   Wow! Roger did such a powerful and passionate presentation yesterday at the National Press Club Luncheon in Washington, DC that it brought tears to my eyes. Much of what he said was as new to me as it was to the audience. For me, Teenage Cancer has always been about raising […]

TOUR DIARY – November 7, 2012

  Great to be in the USA on election day. I would have been happy for either candidate to win. There are pros and cons. The only longing I have is for the President to work more closely with the UK than he appears to have done before. As unpopular as they ended up with […]
