Roger Daltrey Quotes / Quotations

Quotation of Roger Daltrey


I love Sell Out, I think it's great. I love the jingles. The whole thing as an album is a wonderful piece of work. The cover. Everything about it. It's got humor, great songs, irony.
Quotation of Roger Daltrey


I met Pete first when he came to one of our rehearsals with a guitar. I saw him at school, he was a character. You could hardly miss him. But he loves to make those kinds of stories up and we have had a lot of fights in the past and I did used to rule the band with an iron fist.
Quotation of Roger Daltrey

Monterey, I remember, but I seem to remember the Fillmore West, that we played the week before Monterey. That was much more memorable for me. The first time in San Francisco. They were good gigs.

My love for the band is still there. It hasn't changed, maybe that's why it's so painful these days.
