Radio promotion is an important part in helping to get the word out about tours, album releases etc. and the members of The Who have done their fair share of this over the years. I have quite a few recordings of these from their solo careers but one that has eluded me is the radio spots Pete Townshend did for Empty Glass in 1980. If anyone has a copy and could let me have an mp3 or even a transcript of these I'd be extremely grateful. Obviously I would credit the usage in the book. If you do have any information please get in touch.
My research and writing on 'Four Faces' has recently stepped up a notch, which I've found to be really satisfying. It's been good to revisit some history that I had almost forgotten. I have a few new interviews in the bag now, which have been interesting and more are planned shortly.
I'm still busy gathering memorabilia etc from Pete, Roger, John and Keith's solo projects and would be interested to hear from anyone who has any particularly rare and unusual items
I am currently researching and writing a book about the solo careers of Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon, outside of The Who. Having written previously on the band I've now decided to look at the work the band members have done as solo artists. A varied and entertaining ride it is too.
A lot of books have been (or are due to be) released about The Who since they celebrated their 50th anniversary and I wanted to do something different. I intend to explore the solo work of each member of the band in as much detail as The Who's body of work was covered in 'Anyway Anyhow Anywhere - the complete chronicle of The Who 1958 - 1978', which I co-wrote with Andy Neill.
