Op The Who.com wordt aandacht besteed aan gitarist Simon Townshend.
Pete: “My brother Simon knew he wanted to be a musician from infancy. He was a Who fan from 8 years old. Now he spends a lot of his performing life with The Who or with Roger when he does solo shows. Si has been in the Quadrophenia lineup since its first revival in 1996. Flesh and blood and the only member of the band that both Roger and I call a brother, his contribution to Quadrophenia in concert and his special role singing DIRTY JOBS gives him a unique view of the entire project. He met his wife Janie when she modelled as a Mod girl in the Who’s 1973 album booklet. Despite his own amazing career, a wonderful songwriter, and great guitarist, with The Who in Quadrophenia, Simon has become the 5th Jimmy.“
