The first-ever biography of this controversial rock legend chronicles his amazing career, deadly addictions, and enduring presence as one of the world's greatest popular composers and performers.

He was the brains behind the innovative and phenomenally popular band The Who. He invented the rock opera with Tommy, and his new version of that show was a long-running Broadway smash. He is an outstanding guitarist whose career has flourished over more than three decades. Pete Townshend has lived a fascinating, often troubled life, but strangely, he has never been the subject of a biography -- until now.

Rock authority Geoffrey Giuliano, who has known Townshend intimately for almost twenty years, provides a complete look at Townshend's turbulent and eventful life. Giuliano details Townshend's stellar career with impressive insight, candor, and compassion.

Giuliano also delves into the sensational aspects of Townshend's much-talked-about personal life, including his devastating addiction to heroin and alcohol, his volatile and sometimes violent relationships with fellow band members, and his recent admission of his bisexuality.
-- Appendices feature a complete discography of Townshend's recordings over the last three decades and an exhaustive chronology of events.

Relying on countless interviews with dose friends, co-workers, and fellow musicians (including Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and Keith Richards), as well as with Townshend himself, Giuliano draws an enlightening and entertaining portrait of rock's often contradictory and all-too-human elder statesman.
