“It’s a waste of a life really, because he’s got talent,” Daltrey told the Sunday Mirror. “He seems to be feeding of it, now he’s become infamous for his drug addiction he seems to think ‘that’s what I do so I’ve got to do it’, it’s very sad.”
Doherty however wasn’t the only musician in Daltrey’s sights, as he also knocked Sir Paul McCartney saying despite knowing the former Beatle for almost 40 years he doesn’t feel he’s met the real man.
“Paul acts like what is expected of him, I find it very strange, but it’s how he deals with his life,” said The Who man. “Everything, though, becomes the Paul McCartney show.”
Daltrey did however praise The Rolling Stones, commending them for keeping their edge. “Mick (Jagger) is just remarkable,” said Daltrey, “The amount of energy he has is amazing.”
