[lastfm]Roger Daltrey[/lastfm] of the [lastfm]Who[/lastfm], already collaborating with Pete Townshend said in a recent interview that he’d “love to work with some of rock’s other iconic guitartists.” On the short list – Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page…not too shabby.
[lastfm]Roger Daltrey [/lastfm]of [lastfm]The Who[/lastfm] is excited to continue his collaboration with [lastfm]Pete Townshend [/lastfm]but says he’d also love to work with some of rock’s other iconic guitarists.
In an interview posted on the band’s official website, Daltrey says that [lastfm]Led Zeppelin[/lastfm] great [lastfm]Jimmy Page[/lastfm] is on his list. As for [lastfm]Eric Clapton[/lastfm], though, the singer says there could be some problems.
“It would be very difficult for us to work together [onstage] because he’s doing a very laid back blues show. I think he needs a bit of driving, does Eric. That blues stuff is alright, but you need dynamic. Never forget dynamic. I think we could do interesting things,” Daltrey says.
As for Page, The Who frontman said, “I’ve always wanted to do something with Jimmy Page. Mainly because, what the hell is he doing? What an amazing waste of a talent. He’s a genius.” Page’s last studio offering was 1998’s Walking Into Clarksdale with [lastfm]Robert Plant[/lastfm].
