Born Peter Dennis Blandford Townshend on 19 May 1945, in Chiswick, London, he is the guitarist and driving force behind The Who, a British group that ruled the rock stage throughout the 1960s. Raised in the suburbs of London, Townshend first started playing music as a teenager. In 1964, he became a founding member of The Who, along with bass player John Entwistle, vocalist Roger Daltry and drummer Keith Moon. By the end of the following year, the combo was already famous for their violent stage acts (Townshend smashed guitars during performances) and for the hit songs "I Can't Explain," "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" and "My Generation".
