Sp: Music instead of war.
Daltrey: Young humans have in the Adoleszenz now once aggressions. I
believe, we it from the public removed. It looked probably in such a way, as
if we would heat the Kids up. But we looked only violent. In truth we
probably prevented a world war.
Sp: Did you at that time already know that?
Daltrey: No, but I position myself in such a way that today.
Sp: Did you have never fear of your public?
Daltrey: No, never.
Sp: "the singer works badly, because he is accused the lions", sings to Mick
Daltrey: If one would throw Mick into its public, he would have also
difficulties. If one became me in the public of clean throws, then it me
simply back-throws. There was never this high barrier between us and the
public. With the Stones is that different.
Sp: Because the Stones as stadium volume. . .
Daltrey: . . . yes, they are higher, and there is an enormous shut-off
position. That gave and does not give it not with the Who. Pete played for
the first rows - and I for those in the back. We had never this overstar
status of the Stones. A little perhaps in the "Tommy" phase, but the people
essentially talk not about us, but about our music. And that is mad.
Sp: Probably you have with more were therefore survived.
Daltrey: Yes, well possible. . . But who counts my many, many lonely nights?
Sp: What, if instead of mineral waters something else stood to drink here?
Daltrey: If you would lead an interview with Keith Richards, here a bottle
Jack Daniels would stand. But before you would have come, Keith would have
hung two teebeutel into a glass water and would in such a way do, as if he
gave himself from the Jack Daniels after.
Sp: They rob all illusions from me!
Daltrey: I said nothing.
Sp: Ray Davies of the Kinks sings over the "Dedicated Follower OF Fashion".
Do the Englishmen understand themselves to tighten actually better?
Sp: But you were nevertheless a Mod!
Daltrey: No, I played the Mod.
Sp: But you know, what one carries.
Daltrey: No, no, actually not. Because I am so small, I cannot carry
anything. It is a nightmare, because nothing does not fit me, anything looks
good. It is terrible, I is a changing, small laundry bag.
Sp: In "Tommy" you see very gestylt out.
Daltrey: That was somehow zusammengehauen. My stage costume, the "Tommy"
suit with fraying, made for me a friend. The suit became correctly famous by
Woodstock. It consisted old rag of a few Fetzen, with which one deseams the
car. To wash one could not weggeschmissen that anyway, after two, three
appearances has I the thing. Me this costume pleased, because one could
attend unhindered to its work. I carried nothing more drunter and was
therefore perfectly free.
Sp: Before one half million humans: Was Woodstock the largest experience?
Daltrey: No, no. For us it was only a show under many, no particularly good.
When we came finally on the stage, it was early in the morning - and all
stood under drugs.
Sp: The whole public?
Daltrey: I said: Everything. The technicians, the musicians, the public,
everything were broken from drugs. (he orders a further bottle mineral
