The Who has harsh words about their deceased bandmates

Usually when someone passes away you get nostalgic and start to miss them. This doesn’t seem to be the case for Pete Townshend of The Who.

Rolling Stone recently asked Townshend if he gets nostalgic during concerts when photos of his deceased bandmates Keith Moon and John Entwustke are shown on the screen. His responses was definitely not expected.

“It’s not going to make Who fans very happy, but thank God they’re gone,” said Townshend. “They were [censored] difficult to play with. They never, ever managed to create bands for themselves. I think my musical discipline, my musical efficiency as a rhythm player, held the band together.”

Wow. I just hope that when my time comes, we don’t have Joey or Producer Richie thinking “Thank God Karina’s gone.”

UPDATE: After the article was release, Pete Townshend has clarified his remarks. You can read them here.
