Roger Daltrey has revealed that he sees the influence of The Who in Muse.

The Who kicked off their 'Quadrophenia And More European Tour' in Dublin on Saturday (June 8) and will begin a 10-gig UK stint in Glasgow tomorrow night (June 12). The shows will include a full performance of the band's classic 1973 album 'Quadrophenia' as well as a selection of their other favourites.

Discussing the continued appeal of the album in this week's NME, Daltrey said: "Yes, we're looking back, but 'Quadrophenia' has also moved forward, and in that sense it's timeless. It's classic. It's classical music in a rock manner, but it's classical music in every sense of the world."

He also shared his thoughts regarding The Who's impact on other musicians. "I can certainly see us in a band like Muse, for instance - they're doing exactly what we did in the '70s but with new technologies," he said. "They're great musicians and they perform brilliantly."

Asked about The Who's future once the 'Quadrophenia And More European Tour' comes to an end, Daltrey replied: "I don't think you should ever say, 'This is the last time'. Music isn't like that. You'll be sitting there not wishing to get onto a stage again for maybe two, three, four, five months, or maybe a year, then suddenly you'll wake up and feel like you've got to do it again. It's in the blood and I never say never."
