Roger Daltrey Age
Harry was born on 1 March 1944 in East Acton, London, England. He is 75 old as of 2019.
Roger Daltrey Family
He was born in Hammersmith Hospital, East Action to Irene Daltrey and Harry Daltrey. His father, Harry, fought in World War II at the time and came home after a few years. Roger was brought up in Action and attended Victoria Primary School and then Acton County Grammar School along with Townshend and Entwistle. He ranked at the top of his class on the eleven-plus examination that led to his enrolment to County Grammar School.
His parents had high ambitions that their son, Roger, would eventually continue on to study at university. Unfortunately, he turned out opposite and developed a dedicated interest in the emerging rock and roll music scene instead.
He made his first guitar from a square of wood, a cherry red Stratocaster copy, and joined a skiffle band called the Detours, who needed a lead artist. They disclosed to him that he needed to bring a guitar, and inside half a month he appeared with it. At the point when his dad got him an Epiphone guitar in 1959, he turned into the lead guitarist for the band; soon a while later he was ousted from school for tobacco smoking. Townshend wrote in his collection of memoirs, “until he was removed Roger had been a decent understudy.”

Roger Daltrey compares the EU to the “f***ing mafia” in TV interview
The Who’s Roger Daltrey says Brexit has nothing to do with the music business.
Roger Daltrey has slammed the EU during an interview to promote The Who’s upcoming date at Wembley Stadium. The moment came at the end of a filmed segment where Daltrey and Pete Townshend had talked about the band’s past.
Asked if Brexit was going to be bad for rock music, Daltrey responded, “No. What’s it got to do with the rock business?”
“As if we didn’t tour in Europe before the fucking EU! Oh, give it up! If you wanna sign up be ruled by a fucking mafia, you do it. Like being governed by FIFA.”
In January, the band announced the 2019 Moving On Tour of The US.
“The Who are touring again in 2019,” said Townshend. “Roger christened this tour Moving On! I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose. Looking forward to seeing you all. Are you ready?”
Townshend has also confirmed that the band are planning to release a follow-up album to 2006’s Endless Wire, with the tracks pulled from 15 demos he recorded last year.
The guitarist describes the new music as “dark ballads, heavy rock stuff, experimental electronica, sampled stuff and cliched Who-ish tunes that began with a guitar that goes yanga-dang.”
