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". Apart from being the prime mover, Pete Townshend was the main songwriter both for the group and the rock genre in general. His portfolio include notable Who singles like "Magic Bus," "Pinball Wizard" and "Won't Get Fooled Again." In the 1980s, he saw the release of his solo records, and he involved himself more in literary pursuits. However, he has never actually ceased to work with the Who, regularly participating in the group's occasional reunions after its formal breakup.
