There are many that consider the Who’s classic track “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” To be one of the greatest rock songs of all time. We happen to agree with you but, don’t ask Roger Daltrey.
His response when he spoke about the track with Rolling Stone: “That’s the only song I’m bloody bored shitless with,” said Daltrey: “I don’t know why, but I’m being honest. All the others I can approach like I’m singing for the first time. I don’t know what’s happening there psychologically. Maybe it’s the song, but I never seem to be in the same pocket where I’m singing it for the first time.”
The singer was less harsh when it came to some of the other tracks in the bands catalog.
He said that at the time of recording, he thought 1982’s It’s Hard was “overproduced,”but he still digs the song. And he also said that he was still into the track “Cry If You Want.” Daltrey also talked of the tracks “How Many Friends” and “Dreaming From the Waist,” from 1975’s The Who by Numbers, explaining that he was playing both songs with his solo band, and even singled out “How Many Friends” as “a great song, especially in these days of antisocial media.”
As for the future, Daltrey is publishing his memoir later this year.It will be titled Thanks a Lot, Mr. Kibblewight, and is due to be released in October. Daltrey said of the book: “It’s been kind of weird and a little like falling off a cliff and seeing your life go before your eyes,” adding: “It can leave you a bit wishing you’d done more, but then equally when you look back at it all you think, ‘Fuck me. Didn’t I do a lot!’”
