THE WHO: Roger Daltrey says "We will be doing something in the very near future"
Roger Daltrey is convinced Pete Townshend has one more great Who album in him.
Speaking to Billboard, Daltrey says, "We will be doing something in the very near future, that's for sure. I've always been of the opinion that if Pete really puts his mind to it he could potentially write his greatest work at this age. He's got that kind of brain that would use his life experience and his musical ability to perhaps come up with his greatest compositions, and the group has been playing so well recently I think [Townshend] thinks we have a valid voice in the music business. So who knows? He has all the ability to do it; Let's just hope he can be inspired to do it."
The Who's last studio album was Endless Wire in 2006.
Daltrey released his first solo studio album in 26 years, As Long as I Have You, Friday. This coming Friday, he starts a month-long tour, in which he will do The Who's Tommy, on the site of the Woodstock festival in Bethel, New York.
