In een interview heeft Roger gezegd dat Jimi Hendrix zijn gitaarstijl van Pete heeft gekopieerd. Dat is te lezen op The List.
“Pete’s guitar style – there’s nothing like it. People say the best guitarists are [Jimmy] Page, [Eric] Clapton; yeah, they’re fantastic, no doubt about it – amazing – but are they original? I would say they are derivative of Robert Johnson and all those people. But you hear Townshend with a power chord and the things he does with a guitar, which was copied by Hendrix, and it’s totally original.
You think, ‘Where the f**k did that come from?’ I think the real root of it came because he was a banjo player before he was a guitarist. Then you start to see that make sense.“
