Tijdens zijn optreden op Glastonbury riep rapper Kanye West uit dat hij de “greatest living rockstar on the planet” was. Pete dacht daar het zijne van.
US Magazine heeft een artikel hierover.
“But as many Glastonbury fans took to social media to question West’s claims, world-famous rockers Daltrey and Townshend decided their headline appearance on Sunday night was as good a place as any to set the record straight.”We’re going to send you home now with a rebellious, ‘Oh yeah, who’s the biggest rock star in the world?,’” the ’60s rockers announced to their fans, before Townshend performed a mindblowing guitar solo“.
Ook The Lad Bible doet een duit in het zakje.
“Admittedly, in the last 35 years [The Who]’ve only released three albums and only one of them went platinum. And even that was only in the US. That basically means there is an entire generation of people who think Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are nothing more than a couple of aging rockers who made the theme tune to CSI and misspelled ‘Wasteman’ when they wrote Teenage Wasteland.
They may be getting older, but their famously rebellious edge is still alive. Because when they heard Kanye had called himself the ‘greatest living rock star on the planet’, Townshend had something to say about that… He then launched into one of his world-famous guitar solos in what is probably the finest example of proving someone with an ego the size of the milky way, wrong.
They don’t make them like The Who any more“.
