Roger Daltrey Career

Daltrey has released eight solo studio albums. The first was Daltrey in 1973, recorded during a hiatus in the Who's touring schedule. The best-selling single from the album, "Giving It All Away", peaked at No. 5 in the UK and the album, which introduced Leo Sayer as a songwriter, made the Top 50 in the United States. The inner sleeve photography showed a trompe-l'œil in reference to the Narcissus myth, as Daltrey's reflection in the water differs from his real appearance. He also released a single in 1973, "Thinking", with "There is Love" as the B-side. The British release, with considerable airplay of "Giving It All Away" (first lines "I paid all my dues so I picked up my shoes, I got up and walked away") coincided with news reports of the Who being sued for unpaid damage to their hotel on a recent tour, including a TV set being thrown out of the window.

Daltrey's second solo album Ride a Rock Horse was released in 1975, and is his second most commercially successful solo album.

McVicar was billed as a soundtrack album for the film of the same name, in which Daltrey starred and also co-produced. It featured all the other members of the Who at the time (Townshend, Entwistle, and Kenney Jones). McVicar included two hit singles, "Free Me", and "Without Your Love", which is Daltrey's best-selling solo recording.

On release, Parting Should Be Painless received negative critical reviews, and was Daltrey's poorest-selling studio album up to that point. The album was a concerted effort on Daltrey's part to vent his frustrations in the wake of the Who's break-up by assembling a set of roughly autobiographical songs. These included a track contributed by Bryan Ferry ("Going Strong"), and one contributed by Eurythmics ("Somebody Told Me"). Musically, according to Daltrey the album covered areas that he had wanted the Who to pursue.

The title track to Under a Raging Moon is a tribute to late Who drummer Keith Moon, who had died in 1978 at the premature age of 32. On his next album Rocks in the Head, Daltrey's voice ranges from a powerful bluesy growl à la Howlin' Wolf to the tender vocals shared with his daughter Willow on the ballad "Everything a Heart Could Ever Want". This was his first major effort as a songwriter for his own solo career.

Daltrey appeared in the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert in 1992, singing the hard rock Queen song "I Want It All", to pay homage to his friend Freddie Mercury, who died the previous year one day after a public announcement that he suffered from AIDS.

To celebrate his 50th birthday in 1994, Daltrey performed two shows at Carnegie Hall. A recording of the concerts was later issued on CD and video; it was entitled A Celebration: The Music of Pete Townshend and The Who, and is sometimes called Daltrey Sings Townshend. The success of these two shows led to a US tour by the same name, featuring Pete Townshend's brother Simon on lead guitar with Phil Spalding taking bass duties for the first half of each show, and John Entwistle playing for the second half. An Australian leg was considered but eventually scrapped.

An avid fan of Premier League football club Arsenal F.C., Daltrey wrote and performed a specially commissioned song, "Highbury Highs", for the 2006 Highbury Farewell ceremony following the final football match at Highbury. Daltrey's performance was part of Arsenal's celebration of the previous 93 years at Highbury as the club prepared for their move to the Emirates Stadium the following season.

Daltrey embarked on a solo tour of the US and Canada on 10 October 2009, officially called the "Use It or Lose It" tour with a new touring band he called "No Plan B" on the Alan Titchmarsh Show. The band included Simon Townshend on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Frank Simes on lead guitar, Jon Button on bass guitar, Loren Gold on keyboards, and Scott Devours on drums. Eddie Vedder made a guest appearance at the Seattle show on 12 October. In 2010, Daltrey and No Plan B appeared for several dates with Eric Clapton, including Summerfest at Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

On 15 March 2018, Daltrey announced the forthcoming release, on 1 June, of his new solo studio album As Long as I Have You. He appeared on BBC One's The Graham Norton Show, on 13 April 2018, to promote the single taken from the album.

In May 2021, Daltrey announced a return to touring, with the solo Live and Kicking Tour, starting in August 2021. The tour was rescheduled and carried out during the summer of 2022.

On the tenth anniversary of Mel Smith's death, GRIFF RHYS JONES pays tribute to the masterful comedian, July 29, 2023
GRIFF RHYS JONES: I was genuinely startled last week when an old friend rang me out of the blue to say it was now ten years since Mel Smith died. I don't mean I was surprised he got in touch. He didn't want me to go and lay a wreath or anything. I just couldn't believe that it was ten whole years since July 2013, on a day just like this, a bit overcast with wood pigeons practising their school recorder scales outside, when I noticed my wife Jo had dropped her voice in the room next door and was saying things like, 'oh, I'm so sorry to hear that…' and 'if there is anything we can do...' Shamefully, I thought, 'hello, one of her elderly cousins…' I was already sneaking out to join the wood pigeons when she told me Mel had gone. It was the unexpected news that, in truth, we had all been half-expecting. Mel was dead. It was a heart attack in his sleep, after a bad period of illness. He was 60.

The Who hint at retirement after six decades together, April 2, 2023
Rock band The Who have hinted at retirement after almost 60 years together.  Guitarist Pete Townshend, 77, claimed he and lead singer Roger Daltrey, 79, who are the only remaining bandmembers, are considering calling it a day due to their 'old' ages. He revealed the pair may take inspiration from Sir Elton John, who will hang up his microphone after his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which comprises of 333 shows and will end in July 2023, having begun in September 2018.
