Who I Am: A Memoir

Who I Am: A Memoir

Pete Townshend

From the voice of a generation:

...smashed his first guitar onstage, in 1964, by way of accident.
...heard the voice of God on a vibrating mattress in rural Illinois.
...invented the Marshall stack, suggestions, and the concept that album.
...stole his windmill guitar-playing from Keith Richards.
...detached from his physique in an aircraft, on LSD, and approximately died.
...has a few explaining to do.
...is the main literary and literate musician of the final fifty years.
...planned to jot down his memoir while he used to be 21.
...published this publication at 67.

One of rock music's so much clever and literary performers, Pete Townshend—guitarist, songwriter, editor—tells his closest-held tales concerning the origins of the preeminent twentieth-century band The Who, his personal profession as an artist and performer, and his stressed existence out and in of the general public eye during this candid autobiography, Who I Am.

With eloquence, fierce intelligence, and brutal honesty, Pete Townshend has written a deeply own ebook that still stands as a chief resource for well known music's maximum epoch. Readers should be faced via a guy laying naked who he's, an artist who has requested for almost sixty years: who're you?
