Roger Daltrey Net Worth: Roger Daltrey is an English singer, musician, songwriter and actor who has a net worth of $65 million dollars. Born March 1, 1944 in Hammersmith, London, Roger Daltrey is best known as the founder and lead singer of English rock band The Who. Just after leaving grammar school in 1963, he formed a skiffle band called The Detours, then had the unusual instincts (at such a young age) to gather together players who would later become The Who: Daltrey on vocals, John Entwistle on bass and Pete Townshend on lead guitar. In 1965 they added drummer Keith Moon and the fabulous line-up was complete, each band member bringing something different to the table: Townshend's art-school sensibilities; Daltrey's down-to-earth interpretation; and Entwistle's and Moon's skill as performers. They were first noted for their deafening shows and for smashing their instruments in ferocious displays of auto-destructive art, but went on to show chart success through original songs written by Townshend and the more humor-oriented Entwistle. Townshend wrote the first rock mini-opera for their second album, and after their first tour of America, the band presented the full-length rock opus Tommy, which shattered barriers and established The Who as a major force in the world of music. Daltrey released his first solo album in 1973 and followed that with a number of solo chart successes. He also established a stage and film career after starring in the movie of Tommy (1975). After the death of drummer Keith Moon Daltry turned to film production with the drama McVicar (1980). The band continued to perform sporadically with different drummers and John Bundrick on keyboard, but returned to full force in the '90s with the addition of Zak Starkey on drums. Though Townshend is noted as the songwriter and lead guitarist of The Who, Daltrey remains the one who drives their performances. His energy and stage presence established The Who at the monumental Monterey Pop, Woodstock and Isle of Wight music festivals and his instincts for production carved their path through the era of stadium rock. The filmography of musical performances stand as the best evidence of Daltrey's brilliance as both a musician and a stage performer.
