It sounds like Billy Joel fans aren't the only people who don't understand why Billy Joel would retire from recording and touring. Peers like Bruce Springsteen and Pete Townshend are having a tough time with it too.
The Who's Pete Townshend was honored, and Foo Fighters won two of the three Creative Awards for musicians, at the 28th annual Technical Excellence and Creativity (TEC) Awards Friday at The NAMM Show in Anaheim.
Last night (December 9th) the Who wrapped the 21-date 2012 leg of their ongoing Quadrophenia And More tour at Uncasville, Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Arena. Apart from their set at Wednesday night's 12-12-12: A Concert For Sandy Relief at New York's Madison Square Garden, the Who will be on hiatus until January 28th when the band launches its 2013 leg at Anaheim, California's Honda Center.
Pete Townshend is undeniably one of rock music's most dynamic performers. The Who guitarist has always been notable for his energetic stage exertions -- particularly his signature "windmill" move, which consists of Townshend swinging his arm around in a furious windup before delivering a powerful strike to sound power chords on his guitar. In an interview with David Letterman, the musician says his trademark move was inspired by fellow rock icon Keith Richards.
Chris Stamp, the former co-manager of the Who, died of cancer on Saturday (November 24th) in New York City at age 70. Stamp, who was the younger brother of actor Terrence Stamp, played a pivotal role in the band's early career.
