>From the Daily Mirror:
Pete was a ballet dancer
By Mark Jefferies 24/11/2007
The Who guitar wildman Pete Townshend has revealed he once trained as a ballet dancer.
The rock legend is famed for his energetic "windmill" routine in the band's awesome live performances.
But the 62-year-old confesses: "I did a short stint as a sort of Billy Elliot. My father wasn't keen and the ballet mistress beat me."
Townshend also tells Record Collector the band could have made a lot more albums - but he chose to put his family ahead of music.
