In an exclusive interview with us, Pete Townshend spoke frankly about the artistic and commercial merits of him and Roger Daltrey driving the Who in today's age: ["It's not just about the largest numbers, it's about the greatest effectiveness. And I think that Roger and I, together — once the creative work is done — we're a good delivery system; that's what we understand. Y'know, maybe what I've done is found a balance between my solo needs, creatively, and my needs to feel that the Who was not just a stereotypical classic rock machine churning out songs that were eventually be used to sell soap powder. Y'know, we have really put down some very, very clear boundaries: This is what you get."] SOUNDCUE (:30 OC: . . . what you get)
