Townshend Inks Book Deal

Like sports autobiographies, books authored or co-authored by musicians tend to be as shallow and predictable as the typical 'taking 'one game at a time' cliche jocks lean on in pre and post-game interviews. Recent books by Keith Richards, Steven Tyler and Sammy Hagar have proven much more interesting and entertaining than most books by or about Rockers. Pete Townshend 's new book is bound to be another that raises te bar. HarperCollins emerged as the high bidder for the publishing rights to Townshend's new book.  In a release about the book the Who guitarist calls himself, '...lucky to be alive and to have such a crazy story to tell', and says that, above all, he wants the account to be honest.  Given the fact that the quote came out on the anniversary of the date Townshend decked a plain clothes cop during a Who concert at the Fillmore East in New York, we don't think much embellishment will be needed to make his autobiography a great read.
