Description

He was the brains behind the innovative and phenomenally popular band the Who. He invented rock opera with the ever-successful Tommy. His is an outstanding guitarist whose career has flourished over three decades. Pete Townshend has lived a fascinating, often troubled life, but strangely he has never been the subject of a biography. Now, rock authority Geoffrey Giuliano, who has known Townshend intimately for over twenty years, provides a complete look at the composer's turbulent and eventful life.In Behind Blue Eyes, Giuliano draws on interviews with close friends, co-workers, and fellow musicians, including Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and Keith Richards, as well as with Townshend himself.With a complete discography of British and American releases and a full chronology of Townshend's life as well as that of the Who, Behind Blue Eyes is an authoritative and irresistible portrait of rock's often contradictory and all-too-human reigning elder statesman.show more
