Pete Townshend

Stuart Grundy, John Tobler, The Guitar Greats (BBC Books), 1983

PETE TOWNSHEND NEEDS little introduction – he is, although he would perhaps reject the term, a celebrity. Pete was born on 19 May 1945, in London, to a musical family – his father was a musician, of which Pete was very proud and he enjoyed going to see his father play.
