Daltrey has sold over 100 million records including 9 US & 10 UK top ten albums and 14 UK top ten singles. He’s played over well over 2000 gigs in a career spanning over 50 years including venues such as Woodstock, Monterey Pop, Glastonbury (twice), Hyde Park (four times), The Isle Of Wight (three times), Desert Trip, Shea Stadium, The Superbowl half time show and Live Aid to name but a very few.
Roger has raised tens of millions of dollars for charity all over the world and was awarded a CBE for his work with The Teenage Cancer Trust. He is in the UK Music Hall Of Fame and has lifetime achievement awards from The Brits and from The Grammys.
Daltrey has also cultivated a singing career outside of The Who, beginning in 1973 when he found himself on the BBC’s “Top Of The Pops,” the UK’s then premier chart TV show, promoting the single “Giving It All Away” which reached No. 5 in the UK charts. It was a track from his first solo album “Daltrey,” released that same year, which he followed up with the albums “Ride A Rock Horse” (1975), “One Of The Boys” (1977), the soundtrack to “McVicar” (1980) and “After The Fire” (1985).
As Long As I Have You is Daltrey’s first solo album in twenty-six years and will be available on June 1st, 2018 on Polydor/Republic Records. The album was produced by Dave Eringa, best known for his work with the Manic Street Preachers and on Roger and Wilko Johnson’s album ‘Going Back Home’ and features Pete Townshend’s inimitable guitar on seven tracks as well as guest performances from Mick Talbot on keyboards (Dexys, The Style Council) and Sean Genockey on lead guitar who has worked with Suede, Shame and The Proclaimers.)
“This is a return to the very beginning, to the time before Pete started writing our songs, to a time when we were a teenage band playing soul music to small crowds in church halls.” Roger Daltrey 2018
