This Fall, we’re going to find out what it’s like to be one of the best frontmen of all time.
Set for release in the U.S. on October 23 is Thanks A Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite: My Story, the highly-anticipated memoir from The Who’s Roger Daltrey.
Per the book’s website, “This is his story, from his birth at the height of the Blitz, through tempestuous school days to his expulsion, age 15, for a crime he did not commit (though he was guilty of many other misdemeanours he’d got away with). Thanks to Mr Kibblewhite, his draconian headmaster, it could all have ended there. The life of a factory worker beckoned. But then came rock and roll. He made his first guitar from factory off-cuts. He formed a band. The band became The Who – Maximum R&B – and, by luck and by sheer bloody-mindedness, Roger Daltrey became the frontman of one of the biggest rock bands on the planet…Four years in the making, this is the first time Roger Daltrey has told his story. It is not just his own hilarious and frank account of more than 50 wild years on the road. It is the definitive story of The Who and of the sweeping revolution that was British rock ‘n’ roll.”
Thanks a Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite: My Story is now available for pre-order at Amazon.
