Roger Daltrey

Biography

Iconic singer-songwriter who was simply the lead vocalist and co-founder from the classic rock-band The Who. Increasing to popularity in the middle-1960s, the music group released such strikes as “My Era,” “Replacement,” “I CANNOT Explain,” and “Baba O’Riley.” His initial guitar was one of is own very own creations: he produced an imitation cherry crimson Stratocaster he carved from a stop of hardwood. His performance brand was swinging the mike around by its cable during concerts. He wedded Jacqueline “Jackie” Rickman on March 28, 1964; after their divorce in 1968, he wedded Heather Daltrey on July 19, 1971. He provides three sons called Mathias, Simon, and Jamie and two daughters called Willow and Rosie. Guitarist Pete Townshend composed lots of the lyrics sung by Daltry and in addition supplied vocals for The Who on many events.

#Quote
1 [on recovering from throat surgery] I got depressed after surgery, during what I call the big silence, that's when I realized what it would be like to not have a voice. I had two weeks of silence. Silence and no drinking. How's that for a good Christmas? So, you know, it was the strangest Christmas I've ever had.
2 [on Freddie Mercury] When we lost Freddie, we not only lost a great personality, a man with a great sense of humor, a true showman, but we lost probably the best, the best virtuoso rock 'n' roll singer of all time. He could sing anything in any style. He could change his style from line to line and, God, that's an art. And he was brilliant at it.
3 I'm a rock god?! I'm five foot seven. I had me jaw broken, and so my chin stuck way out. That's how I became tough - I learned to pick up anything and fight back ... A rock god!
4 [To the audience at Boston's Beer Garden, USA, on Monday, December 3rd ] About ten hours ago this gig was absolutely fucking impossible. So this one's for the filth - or whatever you like to call 'em - the police in Montréal. We're 'ere and it's good to be 'ere and this one's for them: "Won't Get Fooled Again". [The previous night in Montréal, December 2nd, 1973, they'd been arrested and bailed for the destruction of a hotels facilities]
5 Rock used to be a right laugh. The trouble is the rock press have made it all so serious. Fifty per cent of rock is having a good time.
6 I don't want to stop and I don't think Pete (Pete Townshend) does. We're at the pinnacle of our decline.
7 Of course, chicks keep popping up. When you're in a hotel, a pretty young lady makes life bearable.
8 You know, I was a school rebel. Whatever they said do, I didn't do. I was totally anti-everything. I was a right bastard, a right hard nut. I just totally closed the doors to ever wanting to know what they had to teach me. Rock & roll was the only thing I wanted to get into.
9 [on The Who's performance at Woodstock] It was the worst gig we ever played.
10 I don't have any illusions anymore. The illusion that rock 'n' roll could change anything - I don't believe that. I've changed. Who would have ever thought that I'd end up saying that I want to be an all-around entertainer? But that's what I want to be.

2 Multi octave vocals

5 Frantic emotional singing style
6 Twirling his microphone by its cord, swinging it high into the air, and catching it effortlessly while performing onstage (the cord for his microphone is normally doubled-back and heavily taped to the handle of the mike, to prevent the cord from ripping out of the base during these maneuvers).
