Well well well!
Sh*t went berserk online after THE WHO axeman Pete Townshend made a stupid statement on hate bandmates Keith Moon and John Entwistle.
The comment was made by Pete in a new interview with Rolling Stone. Pete said he doesn’t miss the late drummer Keith Moon and bassist John Entwistle.
“It’s not going to make WHO fans very happy, but thank God they’re gone.
“Because they were f*cking difficult to play with. They never ever managed to create bands for themselves. I think my musical discipline, my musical efficiency as a rhythm player, held the band together.”
He further added:
“John’s bass sound was like a Messiaen organ.”
“Every note, every harmonic in the sky. When he passed away and I did the first few shows without him, with Pino [Palladino] on bass, he was playing without all that stuff…. I said, ‘Wow, I have a job.’ ”
“With Keith, my job was keeping time, because he didn’t do that.”
“So when he passed away, it was, like, ‘Oh, I don’t have to keep time anymore.’”
