Roger Daltrey says that the issues of alienation found in the Who’s Quadrophenia easily apply to today’s youth. Daltrey and Pete Townshend are currently leading the band through Quadrophenia’s second revival, performing the 1973 double album in it’s entirety for the first time in over 15 years. Daltrey told The Columbus Dispatch that teenagers’ problems never really change over the decades, explaining, “I’ve never met someone who always fit in. That period of your life, going through adolescence, that kind of story doesn’t change. I think everyone goes through that. I don’t think that there’s any problem (relating). . . This is an album that holds together the most. There was no interference from other writers. It’s obviously Pete’s pinnacle.”

Daltrey maintains that he’s still finding new things in the piece night after night on the road: “It all comes, that energy. It is wonderful. We drive each other. It’s still a work in progress — very, very different from what we had in ’97. I don’t know how many years I’m going to be able to sing this music. My voice is great at the moment.”
