The Who Bootleg Their Own Shows

THE WHO are planning to make bootleg recordings of their own shows on their forthcoming European tour, in a bid to raise money for charity. Surviving original members ROGER DALTREY and PETE TOWNSHEND will sell DVDs and CDs, and are also working on releasing podcasts and a webcast of an entire concert. And guitarist Townshend is urging major corporate sponsors to "get their heads out of their a**es" and back the initiative. He says in a posting on his official website: "I intend to bootleg Who shows myself and give the proceeds to charity. "On this tour we will sell DVDs as well as CDs. We will also sell downloads. We will also offer podcasts. "In addition we will webcast a live stream of 30 minutes featuring at least one live number by The Who from every show for 99 cents. Proceeds to local health, childrens' and street charities. "Why are we doing this? Because we f**king well can. Will it make us look good? We don't give a f**k. (I can still be rather crude in my old age, you will probably have noticed.) "If you are a corporate sponsor considering sponsoring The Who in this mammoth first ever tour webcast venture, get your head out of your a**e and walk towards us. We are about to take off."
