The Who’s Roger Daltrey Says Rock Is Dead

Mark it down, a member of The Who says rock has “reached at dead end.”

Roger Daltrey sat down with The Times of London for an interview at the Desert Trip festival earlier this month, and stoically said that the only singers who have anything to say nowadays are hip hop artists.

“The sadness for me is that rock has reached a dead end. The only people saying things that matter are the rappers and most pop is meaningless and forgettable,” Daltrey told The Times. “You watch these people and you can’t remember a bloody thing.”

The Who vocalist reminisced that the high point of his career was over forty years ago at the Day On The Green festival in Oakland back in 1976.

“Since then it seems we’ve been stuck in a cycle,” Daltrey recalled in his interview with The Times. “Day on the Green happened 40 years ago yesterday. At Desert Trip we played the same set.”
