Early Life

Roger Daltrey was born Roger Harry Daltrey on March 1, 1944, in East Acton, London, England. He grew up with mother Irene, father Harry (who fought in World War II), and sisters Carol and Gillian. Roger studied at Acton County Grammar School, where he met John Entwistle and Pete Townshend.

In 1957, Daltrey made a guitar out of a block of wood and joined a band, The Detours, as the lead singer. After his father gave him an Epiphone guitar two years later, Roger became the band’s lead guitarist as well.

Daltrey excelled in school, but he was expelled for smoking tobacco. The Detours changed their name in 1964 after finding out that another band was using it, and they settled on The Who.

Music Career

The Who signed a record deal in 1965, and later that year, Roger was fired for beating up Keith Moon after the drummer gave Townshend and Entwistle illegal drugs. He was let back in the band a week later and promised that the violent behavior was over.

The Who released their first album, “My Generation,” on November 3, 1965, and it reached #5 on the UK Albums Chart, with the title track peaking at #2 on the UK Singles Chart. The band followed their successful debut with 11 more studio albums, including “Tommy” (1969), “Quadrophenia” (1973), “Who Are You” (1978), and “Who” (2019).

In 1973, Townshend hit Daltrey in the head with a guitar during an argument over scheduling, and Roger knocked him unconscious in response. When the band turned “Tommy” into a 1975 feature film, Daltrey played the title role and earned a Golden Globe nomination.

After Moon died of a drug overdose in 1978, the band stayed together, but Roger felt that new drummer Kenney Jones wasn’t right for the band. The band stopped actively touring in 1982, but they returned to the road for 1989’s 25th Anniversary Tour.

In 1996, Daltrey agreed to help Townshend produce their rock opera “Quadrophenia” for London Prince’s Trust concert, and Roger was hit in the face by a microphone stand the night before the production. Though there was concern that he wouldn’t be able to perform with a fractured eye socket, Roger put on an eye patch and the show went on as planned.

The Who then toured “Quadrophenia” from 1996 to 1997, and in 2002, Entwistle died of a heart attack the day before the band was scheduled to begin a U.S. tour, so Daltrey and Townshend brought in a new bass player, Pino Palladino, instead of canceling the tour. The Who performed at the Super Bowl XLIV half-time show in 2010.

Roger released his first solo album, “Daltrey,” in 1973, and it reached #6 on the UK Albums Chart. His follow-up, 1975’s “Ride a Rock Horse,” spawned the singles “(Come and) Get Your Love,” “Walking the Dog,” and “Oceans Away.”

In 1980, the “McVicar” soundtrack was released; Daltrey starred in and produced the film, and he performed every song on the soundtrack. In 1992, he released the album “Rocks in the Head” and performed Queen’s “I Want It All” at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert. In 2018, Roger released his first solo studio album in more than 25 years, “As Long as I Have You,” and it peaked at #8 on the UK Albums Chart.
