Townshend Eyes 'Not Particularly Powerful' Solo Album
THE WHO rocker PETE TOWNSHEND is planning the release of his first solo album in 13 years, despite the material not making a "particularly powerful record". Townshend recently recorded the first Who album since 1982, ENDLESS WIRE, with frontman ROGER DALTREY, and is now considering using leftover tracks for his new solo disc, his first since 1993's PSYCHODERELICT. He tells Billboard, "A lot of the songs either I excluded from presenting to Roger or that Roger passed on once he'd heard them, they don't actually make a particularly powerful record, but wow, they would make an extremely interesting record. "So I might actually look at the possibility of putting out a solo record. But again, the only reason I would do that is if I felt I could support it."
