Jon Bon Jovi Says Justin Bieber Is an A–hole

35 Years Ago: The Kinks’ ‘Misfits’ Album Released

40 Years Ago: Roger Daltrey’s ‘Daltrey’ Album Released

The Who were approaching the end of the recording sessions for their second concept album, ‘Quadrophenia,’ when Roger Daltrey’s first solo record was released in May 1973. And fans expecting a rock-god epic from the singer were in for a surprise. Unlike Pete Townshend’s and John Entwistle’s solo albums, which sounded enough like Who records if you wanted them to, ‘Daltrey’ was all about distancing the singer from his band.
