“You can’t stop doing what you’re doing, because you know you’d let down all these people. It’s not people just saying ‘you’ll disappoint your fans if you don’t go on. The show must go on’. You must go on, otherwise all those people will be upset.
It’s: ‘you gotta go on, man, otherwise, all those kids, they’ll be finished. They’ll have nothing to live for’. That’s Rock n’ Roll.”
Happy Birthday Peter Dennis Blandford Townshend!
