Happy birthday to Pete Townshend, born on 19th May 1945, musician, singer, songwriter with The Who. Had the 1965 UK No.2 single ‘My Generation’ and the 1967 US No.9 single ‘I Can See For Miles’ plus over 20 other UK Top 40 hit singles, 16 US Top 40 singles and rock opera albums ‘Tommy’ & ‘Quadrophenia’. Townshend became known for his eccentric stage style swinging his right arm against the guitar strings in a windmill style, often smashing guitars on stage. Although known primarily as a guitarist, he also plays keyboards, banjo, accordion, harmonica, ukulele, mandolin, violin, synthesiser, bass guitar, and drums. Favourite Who track?
