On the subject of #MeToo, The Who frontman Roger Daltrey has criticized the movement making its way into the rock scene. In fact he believes rock stars aren’t the issue here and shouldn’t be seen as predators, but rather the women for coming on to them.
“Why would any rock star need to push themselves on women?" Daltrey asks. “Usually, it’s the other way around. I’d like to have £1 for every woman that screws my a**. Mick Jagger would be a billionaire out of it. If it was going to be in the rock business, it would’ve been out by now. It would’ve been out a long time ago.”
He goes on to liken alleged false accusation of the #MeToo movement to what happened to bandmate Pete Townshend when he was arrested on child pornography charges in 2003. “I find this whole thing so obnoxious. It’s always allegations and it’s just salacious crap. Like the allegations against Pete when he got arrested,” Daltrey offers. “He didn’t have anything on his computer at all. He was accused of downloading, accused of this and accused of that. They never found one f***ing thing on 35 computers. It’s a joke.”
- The Who are set to kick off U.S. tour dates beginning June 8th.
