The Who’s Roger Daltrey Confirms Classic Rock ‘Mega-festival’

By Hayden Wright

Recent rumors of a fall “mega-festival,” featuring some of classic rock’s greatest icons seemed almost too good to be true. But Roger Daltrey of The Who confirmed to the BBC that the festival will happen and that The Who will share the stage with Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan and Neil Young. The Rolling Stones and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd are also expected to join the three-day event October 7 to 9 in Indio, California.

“We have to face it, we are [at] the end of an era,” Daltrey told a British radio station. “We’re the last of our generation. You can see from reading the obituaries lately that we [rock stars] don’t make old bones very well, do we?”

Despite the huge names, Daltrey doesn’t expect egos to govern the historic event, which is being coordinated by the same team that organizes Coachella.

“I don’t think any of us cares who goes on first,” said Daltrey. “We’ve never worried about that. The music is all so different, that’s not going to matter at all.”
