Daltrey Slams Establishment Despite Cbe

Rock legend ROGER DALTREY has slammed the monarchy - despite meeting British royal QUEEN ELIZABETH II yesterday (9FEB05) to collect his Commander Of The British Empire (CBE) honour.

The MY GENERATION singer agreed to attend the ceremony at London's Buckingham Palace where he was awarded the honour for his services to music and charity - but is still a fierce critic of the British Establishment.

He says, "I don't think the Queen's a rock and roll fan.

"She'd probably fall off her podium if she heard The Who's songs. A good blast of My Generation would go down quite well now.

"I still have criticisms of the Establishment but the Queen is an exceptional woman."
