    O ?????? Kibblewhite ???????? ??? Roger Daltrey ??? ?? ??????? ???????? ??? ??? ??? ?? ????????? ?????? ??? ??? ???.? 15?????? Roger ???? ???? ?????,???? ??? ?????? ??? ???? ...

    In a 2016 Rolling Stone interview Daltrey mentioned he was working on his biography. He said there was no publishing deal, so he could take as long as he liked, and only publish if he liked it. Pretty much sums up how he likes to live life. To me Daltrey has always seemed edgy, a bi...

    The front man for The Who tells his side of the story, in a calm and simple way as though you're hearing your grand da reminisce with a cuppa tea by the fire. Moonie and The Ox certainly led wilder lives, but then they're no longer with us, are they? ...

    Loved it. As much as I enjoyed Pete Townsend's memoir, Daltrey's is more down to earth and less ego than Pete's. A quick and fun read. ...

    An engaging, easy and fast read. Daltrey has lived an interesting life and his narrative is refreshingly humble, honest and plainly told. Quite blunt in places, he portrays his former Who colleagues - like Keith Moon - not as gods but real people with plenty of failings and demons. It ...

    ( Format : Audiobook ) "Behind blue eyes." Long time fans of the group, The Who, are used to periodic public pontificating by Pete (Townsend) but from Daltrey, not so much. In fact, hardly at all. So this is a very welcome book from the band's singer and voice of Tommy who was ther...

    A wonderful, humorous account of the life of Roger. I finished this book in just a couple days as it was riveting, comical and at times very moving. It's sometimes hard to believe that Roger has lived as long as he has. Having grown up with the music of The Who and having read Pete Tow...

    Honest and in some spots interesting ... I appreciate that it did not devolve into T&A and debauchery as so many do ... Mr. Daltrey seems like a stand-up guy, but the story is flat, as if told by a bystander, and the biggest bummer is that the book is not connected in any way to th...

    No ghostwriter here! I loved this honest account of Daltrey?s life with and without The Who. I?m a long time fan and learning the background to his life with the band was illuminating. Just one thing, though, Roger. When you and your band performed Tommy at the RAH, Pete DID tur...

    Good book Pretty well written, but could have had more intimate details of his relationships with his fellow band members. It's hard to believe that Daltrey was the straight man of the group, but he at least apparently came through it all relatively unscathed. ...

    3.5*. Really good start. Interesting story, but flatter towards end. ...

    excellent. a great memoir of the lie and times of one of the greatest singers ever ...

    Very easy read. I really enjoyed the casual writing style. I would have liked to hear about a few things that were left out, such as more about Roger's solo albums and a few of his other acting jobs, but I know that wasn't the focus of the book, it was more about the The Who. ...

    . ...

    Roger is the best. Parts of it made my laugh, some made me cry...... ...

    3.5 stars Pete Townshend was my hero in The Who, but Roger Daltrey more than any other band member represented what the group stood for. He was always candid -- not arrogant and brash, but forthright. If asked for an opinion, Daltrey relayed how he saw it. He was true to his working c...

    Anyone who follows me likely knows the absurd amount of books about The Who that I read. When I saw Roger was coming out with an autobiography I immediately slammed the "put on hold at your local library" button. What else was I to do? At least I had 22 people behind me waiting for it....

    The author of this book, Roger Daltrey, was the founder and lead singer of The Who, one of the great British bands of the ?60s and ?70s and arguably one of the most influential bands of rock and roll development. This book grabbed a hold of me right from the start and kept me engag...

    Before saying anything on Roger Daltrey?s memoir, ?Thanks a lot Mr. Kibblewhite?, you have to be a fan of The Who to get the most out of the book. It is well-written and accessible, perhaps due to excellent editors, and it represented a marked improvement over Pete Townshend?s ...

    "We knew each other. We followed each other. We communicated with each other through the music. And something that gets missed in all the war stories about the Who... We respected each other." I love this band quite a lot, so when I heard that this book was coming out, I got really ...

    3.5 stars. Interesting look at the artist by the artist, focused mostly on his early life and The Who from inception to present day. Roger Daltrey does talk about the tough stuff: Keith Moon's and John Entwistle's deaths, the Cincinnati concert, Pete Townshend's arrest. Daltrey has a g...

    Despite some recent tone deaf comments on such topics as the metoo movement, Brexit and prison reform, I still like Roger Daltrey and I always have. In The Who, he was perhaps the least possessed of musical genius (an observation made by Pete Townshend that Daltrey notes with some sarc...

    Roger Daltrey's autobiography "Thanks a Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite" answers the question, "Why does The Who continue to tour when half the founding members are dead?" It's the money, innit? It's telling that in a 260 page book spanning a 50+ year history as a musician Daltrey spends more tim...

    I love the way Roger writes. I?m sure he had some editing help but he doesn?t come across as uneducated just blue collar. After reading Pete?s book a few years back I see that Roger may have put himself in a somewhat better light than the reality, but who doesn?t? It?s a litt...

    As much as I loved this book and enjoyed reading it overnight, as a biography, I have read better ones. Since I've already read Pete Townshend's autobiography and Keith Moon's biography, nothing - or not very much - was new information, even if it was presented from a different perspec...

    ?I spent a lot of time with the disabled extras we had in the film, and they taught me a lot. I already knew from Mike Shaw how difficult life in a wheelchair could be. You just need to push someone around for a day and you realize how hard it is, and how little things make a huge di...

    This is an immensely charming and entertaining read. Roger has a self-deprecating charm about his unique place in history, as well as a survivor's awareness. There is a fair amount of grounded perspective in this recounting. But I suspect there's also a healthy dose of reputation "burn...

    I read Townsend's massive memoir and thought this would be a breezy memoir that told no tales and kept everything light. After all Pete is the brains, and Roger is the front man with the awesome hair and usually no shirt. Wrong! The book was great. It glossed over things, but Ro...

    After listening to Roger Daltrey chat about this memoir with both Marc Aaron and Alec Baldwin, I was really looking forward to reading this memoir. Daltrey gives a lovely overview of his life as a singer with this iconic band. It wasn't until I married my husband that I became especial...

    3.5 stars Pete Townshend was my hero in The Who, but Roger Daltrey more than any other band member represented what the group stood for. He was always candid -- not arrogant and brash, but forthright. If asked for an opinion, Daltrey relayed how he saw it. He was true to his working c...

    Anyone who follows me likely knows the absurd amount of books about The Who that I read. When I saw Roger was coming out with an autobiography I immediately slammed the "put on hold at your local library" button. What else was I to do? At least I had 22 people behind me waiting for it....

    The author of this book, Roger Daltrey, was the founder and lead singer of The Who, one of the great British bands of the ?60s and ?70s and arguably one of the most influential bands of rock and roll development. This book grabbed a hold of me right from the start and kept me engag...

    Before saying anything on Roger Daltrey?s memoir, ?Thanks a lot Mr. Kibblewhite?, you have to be a fan of The Who to get the most out of the book. It is well-written and accessible, perhaps due to excellent editors, and it represented a marked improvement over Pete Townshend?s ...

    "We knew each other. We followed each other. We communicated with each other through the music. And something that gets missed in all the war stories about the Who... We respected each other." I love this band quite a lot, so when I heard that this book was coming out, I got really ...

    3.5 stars. Interesting look at the artist by the artist, focused mostly on his early life and The Who from inception to present day. Roger Daltrey does talk about the tough stuff: Keith Moon's and John Entwistle's deaths, the Cincinnati concert, Pete Townshend's arrest. Daltrey has a g...

    Despite some recent tone deaf comments on such topics as the metoo movement, Brexit and prison reform, I still like Roger Daltrey and I always have. In The Who, he was perhaps the least possessed of musical genius (an observation made by Pete Townshend that Daltrey notes with some sarc...

    Roger Daltrey's autobiography "Thanks a Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite" answers the question, "Why does The Who continue to tour when half the founding members are dead?" It's the money, innit? It's telling that in a 260 page book spanning a 50+ year history as a musician Daltrey spends more tim...

    I love the way Roger writes. I?m sure he had some editing help but he doesn?t come across as uneducated just blue collar. After reading Pete?s book a few years back I see that Roger may have put himself in a somewhat better light than the reality, but who doesn?t? It?s a litt...

    As much as I loved this book and enjoyed reading it overnight, as a biography, I have read better ones. Since I've already read Pete Townshend's autobiography and Keith Moon's biography, nothing - or not very much - was new information, even if it was presented from a different perspec...

    ?I spent a lot of time with the disabled extras we had in the film, and they taught me a lot. I already knew from Mike Shaw how difficult life in a wheelchair could be. You just need to push someone around for a day and you realize how hard it is, and how little things make a huge di...

    This is an immensely charming and entertaining read. Roger has a self-deprecating charm about his unique place in history, as well as a survivor's awareness. There is a fair amount of grounded perspective in this recounting. But I suspect there's also a healthy dose of reputation "burn...

    ( Format : Audiobook ) "Behind blue eyes." Long time fans of the group, The Who, are used to periodic public pontificating by Pete (Townsend) but from Daltrey, not so much. In fact, hardly at all. So this is a very welcome book from the band's singer and voice of Tommy who was ther...

    A wonderful, humorous account of the life of Roger. I finished this book in just a couple days as it was riveting, comical and at times very moving. It's sometimes hard to believe that Roger has lived as long as he has. Having grown up with the music of The Who and having read Pete Tow...

    No ghostwriter here! I loved this honest account of Daltrey?s life with and without The Who. I?m a long time fan and learning the background to his life with the band was illuminating. Just one thing, though, Roger. When you and your band performed Tommy at the RAH, Pete DID tur...

    Good book Pretty well written, but could have had more intimate details of his relationships with his fellow band members. It's hard to believe that Daltrey was the straight man of the group, but he at least apparently came through it all relatively unscathed. ...

    3.5*. Really good start. Interesting story, but flatter towards end. ...

    excellent. a great memoir of the lie and times of one of the greatest singers ever ...

    Very easy read. I really enjoyed the casual writing style. I would have liked to hear about a few things that were left out, such as more about Roger's solo albums and a few of his other acting jobs, but I know that wasn't the focus of the book, it was more about the The Who. ...

    Anyone who follows me likely knows the absurd amount of books about The Who that I read. When I saw Roger was coming out with an autobiography I immediately slammed the "put on hold at your local library" button. What else was I to do? At least I had 22 people behind me waiting for it....

    The author of this book, Roger Daltrey, was the founder and lead singer of The Who, one of the great British bands of the ?60s and ?70s and arguably one of the most influential bands of rock and roll development. This book grabbed a hold of me right from the start and kept me engag...

    Before saying anything on Roger Daltrey?s memoir, ?Thanks a lot Mr. Kibblewhite?, you have to be a fan of The Who to get the most out of the book. It is well-written and accessible, perhaps due to excellent editors, and it represented a marked improvement over Pete Townshend?s ...

    "We knew each other. We followed each other. We communicated with each other through the music. And something that gets missed in all the war stories about the Who... We respected each other." I love this band quite a lot, so when I heard that this book was coming out, I got really ...

    3.5 stars. Interesting look at the artist by the artist, focused mostly on his early life and The Who from inception to present day. Roger Daltrey does talk about the tough stuff: Keith Moon's and John Entwistle's deaths, the Cincinnati concert, Pete Townshend's arrest. Daltrey has a g...

    Despite some recent tone deaf comments on such topics as the metoo movement, Brexit and prison reform, I still like Roger Daltrey and I always have. In The Who, he was perhaps the least possessed of musical genius (an observation made by Pete Townshend that Daltrey notes with some sarc...

    Roger Daltrey's autobiography "Thanks a Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite" answers the question, "Why does The Who continue to tour when half the founding members are dead?" It's the money, innit? It's telling that in a 260 page book spanning a 50+ year history as a musician Daltrey spends more tim...

    I love the way Roger writes. I?m sure he had some editing help but he doesn?t come across as uneducated just blue collar. After reading Pete?s book a few years back I see that Roger may have put himself in a somewhat better light than the reality, but who doesn?t? It?s a litt...

    As much as I loved this book and enjoyed reading it overnight, as a biography, I have read better ones. Since I've already read Pete Townshend's autobiography and Keith Moon's biography, nothing - or not very much - was new information, even if it was presented from a different perspec...

    ?I spent a lot of time with the disabled extras we had in the film, and they taught me a lot. I already knew from Mike Shaw how difficult life in a wheelchair could be. You just need to push someone around for a day and you realize how hard it is, and how little things make a huge di...

    This is an immensely charming and entertaining read. Roger has a self-deprecating charm about his unique place in history, as well as a survivor's awareness. There is a fair amount of grounded perspective in this recounting. But I suspect there's also a healthy dose of reputation "burn...

    I read Townsend's massive memoir and thought this would be a breezy memoir that told no tales and kept everything light. After all Pete is the brains, and Roger is the front man with the awesome hair and usually no shirt. Wrong! The book was great. It glossed over things, but Ro...

    A wonderful, humorous account of the life of Roger. I finished this book in just a couple days as it was riveting, comical and at times very moving. It's sometimes hard to believe that Roger has lived as long as he has. Having grown up with the music of The Who and having read Pete Tow...

    Honest and in some spots interesting ... I appreciate that it did not devolve into T&A and debauchery as so many do ... Mr. Daltrey seems like a stand-up guy, but the story is flat, as if told by a bystander, and the biggest bummer is that the book is not connected in any way to th...

    No ghostwriter here! I loved this honest account of Daltrey?s life with and without The Who. I?m a long time fan and learning the background to his life with the band was illuminating. Just one thing, though, Roger. When you and your band performed Tommy at the RAH, Pete DID tur...

    Good book Pretty well written, but could have had more intimate details of his relationships with his fellow band members. It's hard to believe that Daltrey was the straight man of the group, but he at least apparently came through it all relatively unscathed. ...

    3.5*. Really good start. Interesting story, but flatter towards end. ...

    Very easy read. I really enjoyed the casual writing style. I would have liked to hear about a few things that were left out, such as more about Roger's solo albums and a few of his other acting jobs, but I know that wasn't the focus of the book, it was more about the The Who. ...

    3.5 stars Pete Townshend was my hero in The Who, but Roger Daltrey more than any other band member represented what the group stood for. He was always candid -- not arrogant and brash, but forthright. If asked for an opinion, Daltrey relayed how he saw it. He was true to his working c...

    Anyone who follows me likely knows the absurd amount of books about The Who that I read. When I saw Roger was coming out with an autobiography I immediately slammed the "put on hold at your local library" button. What else was I to do? At least I had 22 people behind me waiting for it....

    The author of this book, Roger Daltrey, was the founder and lead singer of The Who, one of the great British bands of the ?60s and ?70s and arguably one of the most influential bands of rock and roll development. This book grabbed a hold of me right from the start and kept me engag...

    Before saying anything on Roger Daltrey?s memoir, ?Thanks a lot Mr. Kibblewhite?, you have to be a fan of The Who to get the most out of the book. It is well-written and accessible, perhaps due to excellent editors, and it represented a marked improvement over Pete Townshend?s ...

    "We knew each other. We followed each other. We communicated with each other through the music. And something that gets missed in all the war stories about the Who... We respected each other." I love this band quite a lot, so when I heard that this book was coming out, I got really ...

    3.5 stars. Interesting look at the artist by the artist, focused mostly on his early life and The Who from inception to present day. Roger Daltrey does talk about the tough stuff: Keith Moon's and John Entwistle's deaths, the Cincinnati concert, Pete Townshend's arrest. Daltrey has a g...

    Despite some recent tone deaf comments on such topics as the metoo movement, Brexit and prison reform, I still like Roger Daltrey and I always have. In The Who, he was perhaps the least possessed of musical genius (an observation made by Pete Townshend that Daltrey notes with some sarc...

    Roger Daltrey's autobiography "Thanks a Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite" answers the question, "Why does The Who continue to tour when half the founding members are dead?" It's the money, innit? It's telling that in a 260 page book spanning a 50+ year history as a musician Daltrey spends more tim...

    In a 2016 Rolling Stone interview Daltrey mentioned he was working on his biography. He said there was no publishing deal, so he could take as long as he liked, and only publish if he liked it. Pretty much sums up how he likes to live life. To me Daltrey has always seemed edgy, a bi...

    The front man for The Who tells his side of the story, in a calm and simple way as though you're hearing your grand da reminisce with a cuppa tea by the fire. Moonie and The Ox certainly led wilder lives, but then they're no longer with us, are they? ...

    I love the way Roger writes. I?m sure he had some editing help but he doesn?t come across as uneducated just blue collar. After reading Pete?s book a few years back I see that Roger may have put himself in a somewhat better light than the reality, but who doesn?t? It?s a litt...

    As much as I loved this book and enjoyed reading it overnight, as a biography, I have read better ones. Since I've already read Pete Townshend's autobiography and Keith Moon's biography, nothing - or not very much - was new information, even if it was presented from a different perspec...

    ?I spent a lot of time with the disabled extras we had in the film, and they taught me a lot. I already knew from Mike Shaw how difficult life in a wheelchair could be. You just need to push someone around for a day and you realize how hard it is, and how little things make a huge di...

    This is an immensely charming and entertaining read. Roger has a self-deprecating charm about his unique place in history, as well as a survivor's awareness. There is a fair amount of grounded perspective in this recounting. But I suspect there's also a healthy dose of reputation "burn...

    I read Townsend's massive memoir and thought this would be a breezy memoir that told no tales and kept everything light. After all Pete is the brains, and Roger is the front man with the awesome hair and usually no shirt. Wrong! The book was great. It glossed over things, but Ro...

    After listening to Roger Daltrey chat about this memoir with both Marc Aaron and Alec Baldwin, I was really looking forward to reading this memoir. Daltrey gives a lovely overview of his life as a singer with this iconic band. It wasn't until I married my husband that I became especial...

    If I just gave K.K. Downing?s book a four (and I?d give Townshend?s a three and Clapton?s a two), I?d say this is a 4.5. A must for Who fans, without question. As with most rock autobiographies, I would have liked more details and stories from the years that are skipped over....
