De Rolling Stone heeft een interview met Roger. In het interview praat hij o.a. over zijn betrokkenheid bij het Teenage Cancer Trust, Doors-toetsenist Ray Manzarek en het solo-optreden vandaag in Costa Mesa.
“A singer has to sing. The Who don’t do enough gigs for me. If I stop singing at the age I am now, my voice will be gone within two years. So I’ve got to keep it going. It’s like a car engine you’ve got to keep running. I do solo shows and I love to sing Who songs. They’re my songs as much as they are Pete’s, in a way, and I have great fun doing them, love doing them. I’m a painter and decorator, what else do I do?”
Roger zit te denken aan een solo-album: “I’m looking at doing a solo album, mainly because I want to keep singing and I don’t want to keep going out and doing Who songs, though that’s what people want at the shows I do. I go out and do corporate gigs. I keep a band together and they pay the wages, so I would like to do an album. It’s finding songs, because whatever I do the songs will be criticized unless they’ve got the Who’s meat and potatoes, because I’ve sung Townshend all those years. If I can get the songs, I’ll do something“.
