The Boy Who Heard Music - Pete Townshend

Pete Townshend

Pete Townshend is the greatest songwriter in the history of rock 'n' roll. Pete is also one of rock's greatest rhythm guitarists - he invented the power chord. He is one of the very rare songwriters who is able to compose prolific songs year after year; song after song.

Pete's songs and musical prowess had - and still do - an enormous impact and influence on me as a guitarist, songwriter, and lyricist.

Pete writes with clear insight. As well, he writes from the heart and writes without shame. I think these are the traits I admire the most about Pete's songwriting, and "golden rules" I try to follow when I write my songs. I truly believe the only way to write a song is to leave your inhibitions at the door.

Pete Townshend's guitar playing is ferocious, but controlled as well. I learned from listening to his playing that a well-constructed song doesn't have to be complex to be good. A three-chord song can really rock if the proper approach is taken.
Pete has made great contributions to rock 'n' roll, music, and the world of art. He is always expanding his horizons, it seems. I'm quite excited to see where his latest project - The Boy Who Heard Music - leads.
I used to "back" Pete when was alive and well and living on the Internet.
I signed the "Add Pete Townshend (as a solo artist) to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame" petition."
