Daltrey Learns From U2's 'Greed'
THE WHO frontman ROGER DALTREY was convinced fellow megaband U2 were greedy for touring on such a grand scale, before realising their tactic made sound business sense. The MY GENERATION star, who kicks off a staggering 18-month tour with The Who this summer (06), has never looked back since following in the Irish rockers' footsteps. He says, "I was having coffee with (bassist) ADAM CLAYTON from U2 some time back and said, 'Why do you do mammoth tours?' "You can't be so greedy that you need to own the whole of the south of France. "Now I realise that these tours have to be done on a massive scale to be viable."
