Pete Townshend has announced an interview and performance for Friday, October 12th in Boston at the Berklee Performance Center. Tickets for the appearance will run $32.50 with a copy of Townshend’s new memoir, Who I Am, being included in the price of admission. Earlier that day, Townshend will wrap his mini-signing tour at the Barnes & Noble store in Boston’s Prudential Center.

Excerpts from Who I Am have already been printed in Rolling Stone, with Townshend naming old friend n Mick Jagger as the only man he’s ever had the urge to sleep with, revealing in the book: “Mick is the only man I’ve ever seriously wanted to f***. He was wearing loose pajama-style pants without underwear; as he leaned back I couldn’t help noticing the outline of his ample c*** lying against the inside of his leg. From then on, I encouraged the band to arrange our ‘equipment’ for maximum effect, especially onstage or in photographs.”

Townshend revealed to us that unlike today, where he specifically writes for himself, in the past he never focused on who would perform his material, choosing to just let the inspiration be his guide: “What used to happen was that I used to write, irrespective of whether I was going to sing the song or that the Who were going to sing the song — or to be honest, if someone came along to me one day. . . Y’know, if Paul Simon, or Sting, or Paul McCartney, or the Stones or something, said, y’know, ‘Have you got a song?’ Y’know, I gladly would’ve written for anybody else, it’s just that nobody asked me.”
