Townshend Challenges The White Stripes
THE WHO guitarist PETE TOWNSHEND insists he can easily out-rock THE WHITE STRIPES, but admits he falls short in the looks department. The MY GENERATION star, 61, is convinced he could recreate the BLUE ORCHID rockers distinctive sound all by himself. But he admits he is likely to have less of a visual impact than the striking, black-haired duo. He says, "I could probably outdo The White Stripes with a guitar and a f**king drum machine. "Whether I would ever be as much fun, or as gorgeous, is another story."
