The Who Returns With The First Studio Album Since 1982
The Whos first studio album since 1982 may finally see the light of day next spring. According to guitarist Pete Townshends official Web site, the set carries the provisional title "WHO2," perhaps a reference to the fact that he and vocalist Roger Daltrey are the lone surviving original members of the legendary rock act. Pete says: WHO2 will not be a concept album. That is, in itself, a concept for me. Roger and I meet in mid December to play what we have written. If we move ahead from there, we may have a CD ready to release in the spring. My working-title for the project - ?Who2? - is only partly tongue-in-cheek. If the recording works out we will tour with the usual band in the first half of 2005.
"green day" is a slang term for spending a day smoking marajuana. Billie Joe Armstrong wrote a song called "Green Day" about his first experience with the drug, and it soon replaced "Sweet Children" as the band´s name.
