Townshend Reveals Daltrey/entwistle Friction

Rocker PETE TOWNSHEND has revealed that friction between ROGER DALTREY and JOHN ENTWISTLE held up the release of THE WHO's comeback album - because the late bass player refused to let the singer hear raw tracks he had written. Townshend was stunned when Entwistle revealed he'd penned several new The Who songs at a band press conference in 2000 because, at the time, there were no plans to record a new album. Charged by the announcement, the guitarist set about getting his bandmates in the studio but discovered Entwistle didn't want to get together with Daltrey. He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I went to John and said, 'Have you (really) written any songs?' He said, 'Yeah, I've got 'undreds. But I'm not playing them to him.' "I said, 'Who's him?' And he said, 'Roger. I'm not having my songs sniffed out by him.' And that was that." Townshend and Daltrey eventually recorded new material after Entwistle died in 2002 and the end result, ENDLESS WIRE, is the group's first new studio album in 24 years."
