Quadrophenia Tour No Sure Thing

Hopes that Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey will be able to mount a 2012 tour performing Quadrophenia in its entirety remain just that.  Speaking with Billboard, the Who lead singer said that uncertainty about his band mate's hearing problems leave some hurdles the pair will have to figure out ways around before anything gets firmed-up.  Townshend has been spending a good deal of time preparing deluxe editions of the 1973 benchmark double album by the band for release on November 14 while Daltrey tours doing the Rock Opera Tommy with Pete's younger brother, Simon Townshend, on guitar.  Roger said , 'Quadrophenia was much more a Pete animal than Tommy ever was... So for me, spending months in a studio putting something like that together is a complete waste of time.'
