In an interview with Mojo, The Who's Pete Townshend said that he thinks The Who will stop after this year.
“I think I will stop after this year,” he explains, though he stresses it won’t be the end of his collaborative relationship with Who singer Roger Daltrey. “I think Roger and I will do odd things together,”and added, “I hope that one day I can write him an album of songs that suit him and the record company won’t demand that we call it the f***ing Who, but I’ve got a bad feeling about it. I think that if I wrote Roger a bunch of good songs, our manager would say, ‘Why not call it The Who? We’ll sell double as many records!’”
Finally, Townshend stated: "When this tour is over, we’ll probably both go our separate ways. So it’s to demonstrate that even this particular gang can grow old – not necessarily gracefully, but can grow old ungracefully, or whatever it is that we’re doing.”
The Who will play BST Hyde Park Friday 26 June.
