AS CURRENTLY ON SHOW AT EALING PROJECT
English singer/songwriter, actor and film producer, Roger Daltry is a co-founder and the lead singer of The Who, considered one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century. Daltrey's hit songs with The Who includes "My Generation”, which became their trademark. The band regularly played The Ealing Club.
Roger first assembled the group that would become The Who in 1961 while at Acton County Grammar School, recruiting John Entwistle and subsequently agreeing to John’s proposal that Pete Townshend should join. In those days Roger, whose daytime job was working in a sheet metal factory, even made the band’s guitars! The Who's stage act was energetic, and Daltrey's habit of swinging the microphone around by its cord on stage became his signature move. It’s his relationship with the microphone in one of Solomon NJie’s photos that inspired Stella’s digital painting of the singer.
Sol says, “The Who were the first live band I saw at the age of 15. Remember being amazed how Roger Daltrey swung the microphone around his head and over the audience without missing a beat. Stella has captured Roger in classic pose during his prime while singing at full tilt.”
