Roger Daltrey Memoir Title, Release Info
The Who fans don’t have much longer to wait – details about Roger Daltrey’s long-awaited memoir were shared on the band’s Facebook page.
Thanks A Lot Mr. Kibblewhite: My Story will be published in the UK on October 18th and will be out in North America October 23rd. Mr. Kibblewhite was Daltrey’s “draconian headmaster” (according to the synopsis) during the singer’s teenage years.
Daltrey issued this statement: “I’ve always resisted the urge to ‘do the memoir’ but now, finally, I feel I’ve enough perspective. When you’ve spent more than half a century at the epicenter of a band like The Who, perspective can be a problem. Everything happened in the moment. One minute, I’m on the factory floor in Shepherd’s Bush, the next, I’m headlining Woodstock.”
“It’s taken three years to unpick the events of my life, to remember who did what when and why, to separate the myths from the reality, to unravel what really happened at the Holiday Inn on Keith Moon’s 21st birthday,” Daltrey said in a statement. “I hope the result is more than just another autobiography. I’ve been lucky enough to live in interesting times. I’ve witnessed society, music and culture change beyond recognition. That I’m still here to tell my tale when so many others around me didn’t make it is nothing short of a miracle.”
What’s the best rock book of all-time? You gotta think there’s gonna be some incredible stories in this one!! Can’t wait to give it a read.
