New life in Who's 'Quadrophenia'

(Continued)

During the past decade, the Who has settled into a lineup of Townshend and Daltrey joined by drummer Zak Starkey and bassist Pino Palladino. For the current tour, they will be joined by guitarist Simon Townshend (Pete’s brother), musical director/keyboardist/backing vocalist Frank Simes, keyboardist Chris Stainton and keyboardist/backing vocalist Loren Gold.

Townshend said the current band has given him something of a new lease on life within the Who.

“I’m not saying what I do now is better than what I did then, but I do feel freer to explore (anew) what I did as a musician back then, but also to find new things,” Townshend said.
