schema:description"Noting that Pete Townshend has sold over 100 million records over a fifty-year period only partly quantifies his accomplishments. During his career, this legendary musician has been credited with the creation of the concept album, worked as a literary editor, developed scripts for television and the stage, and written songs that have defined a generation. In one of the most eagerly awaited autobiographies of recent times, singer, songwriter and lead guitarist of The Who tells his story for the first time. From the sex, drugs and smashing guitars, to the death of Keith Moon, the inspiration behind his acclaimed music, and wanting to give it all up, this is a frank and eloquently written story of ambition, relentless perfectionism and rock 'n' roll excess. One of the greatest rock stories yet to be told, Pete Townshend: Who I Am is destined to become a landmark music memoir."@en
