Sixty-seven year old rock legend Roger Daltrey performs The Who’s “Tommy” in its entirety Thursday night in Alpharetta at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. Singer-songwriter-actor Roger Harry Daltrey was born in London on March 1, 1944. Best known as the founder and lead singer of The Who, Daltrey has maintained a musical career as a solo artist and has also worked in the film industry, acting in a large number of films, theatre and television roles and also producing films. In 1990, Daltrey was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland as a member of The Who. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame also included three songs that Daltrey recorded with The Who on the list of 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll, including: “My Generation”, “Go to the Mirror Boy”, and “Baba O’Riley”. In 2005 Daltrey received a British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors Gold Badge Award for special and lasting contributions to the British entertainment industry.
