The Who star reveals, ‘I never seem to be in the same pocket where I’m singing it for the first time.’
The Who star Roger Daltrey hates performing the band’s hit Won’t Get Fooled Again because it bores him senseless.
The Pete Townshend track was released as a single in 1971 and remains one of the British rock group’s fan favourites, but Daltrey would have no problem dropping it from a set list.
“That’s the only song I’m bloody bored s**tless with,” he tells Rolling Stone magazine. “I don’t know why, but I’m being honest. All the others I can approach like I’m singing for the first time.
“I don’t know what’s happening there psychologically. Maybe it’s the song, but I never seem to be in the same pocket where I’m singing it for the first time.”
And there’s one The Who song Daltrey reveals he’ll never perform live – Rael from the album The Who Sell Out.
“We couldn’t do that,” he tells the publication. “I don’t think I can sing up there anymore. I could probably do most of it, but I don’t want to ever sing Rael onstage.
“That was done in the studio… It was all tape-looped and double-tracked on two tape recorders. Bouncing across it was layers after layers of vocals. Just trying to bloody reinvent that would be a nightmare.”
