Pete Townshend commented a few days ago that, thank God, Keith Moon and John Entwistle are dead. It did not take long to qualify his words. What he said exactly was’thank god they are deadIt was very difficult to play with them. They never created a group. I think my musical discipline as rhythm guitar kept us together ».

The scandal was served and he had to write a long statement on his Facebook profile in which he said the following. «No one can know how much I miss them, as people, musicians and friends. The alchemy we had in the studio is not on the new album and it has always seemed a mistake to carry on without thembut I guess we had to keep trying. It pisses me off that they are dead. It’s selfish, but I feel that way.

Townshend clarifies that he has always appreciated being able to continue with The Who, “I thank God, but it was ironic when I said what I said. I am grateful to be free as a musician or songwriter, but sad to have lost an old friend. It’s not irony, it pisses me off. The same thing happened to me when my mother died, I was relieved when she left, but I still miss him a lot.

It also indicates that “I understand that the fans of The Who were hurt by what I said and that it was used as a headline. Best of all, with Keith and John we went on tour and had a great time. Playing with them was tough, but Roger and I doubled down on that difficulty to laugh as much as possible even though we could have lived a much quieter life. It was a constant struggle.

He does not hesitate to apologize to the Moon and Entwistle families, «I have done many interviews in three months, I have lost my patience. I forgive myself and hope they do. I always adored them. It’s very hard to imagine how everything would have turned out if John and Keith were here. Maybe we would have grown up musically or maybe we would have spiraled, but we would be great friends. ” We await your comments regarding these statements.
