MOJO heeft een nieuw interview met Pete, waarin hij aangeeft dat The Who waarschijnlijk gaat stoppen volgend jaar.
“I think I will stop after this year. I think Roger and I will do odd things together. I hope that one day I can write him an album of songs that suit him and the record company won’t demand that we call it the f***ing Who, but I’ve got a bad feeling about it. I think that if I wrote Roger a bunch of good songs, our manager would say, ‘Why not call it The Who? We’ll sell double as many records!’“, aldus Pete.
Hij ontkracht geruchten dat hij en Roger meningsverschillen zouden hebben.
“Roger and I were both so upset when the English newspapers decided that we were feuding – big headlines: ‘Roger And Townshend Feuding.’ Because it’s just not the case. The acceptance of each other’s eccentricities and differences has brought us to a really genuine and compassionate relationship, which can only be described as love. And that’s something to demonstrate, because this is two old guys in rocking chairs. As Roger says, we’re lucky that we’re not in some old people’s home and that we can do this now.
“Because when this tour is over, we’ll probably both go our separate ways. So it’s to demonstrate that even this particular gang can grow old – not necessarily gracefully, but can grow old ungracefully, or whatever it is that we’re doing”
