Overview

Roger Daltrey —cantante, tunante y fundador del cuarteto The Who— es la voz de una generación, la primera en rebelarse contra las sombrías miserias y privaciones de la Segunda Guerra Mundial... para redefinir, en tan necesario empeño, la propia figura del artista adolescente. De su puño y letra, cúentase aquí la historia desde su nacimiento —en los peores días de los bombardeos que asolaron la capital londinense—, pasando por sus no menos tempestuosas andanzas escolares; colmadas, para mayor gloria, con su temprana expulsión, a los 15 años. Evocación de un trauma que tórnase en agradecimiento al autoritario Mr. Kibblewhite, temido director del centro; pues, como señala al poco del arranque, de no ser por tan providencial expulsión hubiera muy probablemente seguido la suerte que parecía aguardar a todos los de su condición. Pero luego hízose el rock 'n' roll. Construiría con sus propias manos su primera guitarra valiéndose de los desechos del taller donde, además, procurábase el sustento. Formaría su primera banda, se convertiría en The Who y, por su inquebrantable determinación, Roger Daltrey se proclamaría líder de uno de los grupos más grandes de la época.Roger Daltrey is a founder of the quartet The Who. In his own voice, this is the story of his birth— in the worst days of the bombings that devastated the London capital— through his no less stormy school adventures that led to his early expulsion at age 15. Though if it weren't for his expulsion, he likely would not have followed the path that he did, the one that led him to become a rock 'n' roll star. He would build his first guitar with his own hands, making use of the scraps from his workshop. He would form his first band, it would become The Who and, because of his unwavering determination, Roger Daltrey would proclaim himself the leader of one of the largest groups of the time.

Author Biography

Roger Daltrey is the founder and singer of one of the great quartets of the British rock era: The Who. He began singing thanks to the good offices of the parish choir when he was barely seven years old. With the launch of My Generation in 1965, and the birth in 1969 of Tommy, the great rock opera of the time, he and his three companions in arms, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon, would achieve their consecration as stars of planetary rock.
