About the Author:

The defining guitarist of a generation, Pete was the powerful creative force behind The Who, widely regarded as one of the greatest rock bands of all time. His musical knowledge and writing ability was and is unparalleled, and his taste for rebellion renowned. The destruction of the very guitars that resounded with the legendary tracks My Generation and I Can't Explain brought him acclaim and notoriety in equal measure, but his pure passion and talent has guaranteed his status as an icon and authority on rock `n' roll for decades. Pete has widely been cited as an inspiration to countless musicians, celebrated in their own right, and continues to perform to sell-out audiences across the globe with his fellow band members.

Review:

`More honest than any fan would have hoped. Maybe nobody knows what it's like to be the bad man, to be the sad man, behind blue eyes-but Who I Am is as close as we are likely to get.' Rolling Stone `Astonishingly frank, detailed and heartfelt.' The Sun `Whatever the subject, he writes passionately and eloquently.' The Times
