Roger Daltrey confirms details for long-awaited memoir

The Who star originally announced the book in October 2017

The Who‘s Roger Daltrey has confirmed details of his long-awaited memoir.

The musician initially announced his plans to release an autobiography back in October 2017 but has kept any concrete details under wraps until now.

Now, a post on The Who’s Facebook page has revealed that the memoir will be titled Thank A Lot Mr. Kibblewhite: My Story and will be released on October 18 in the UK, arriving in the US five days later. The cover features a black-and-white photo of a young Daltrey.

The star will also hold a signing at the 2018 London Literature Festival at the Southbank Centre on October 18 to mark the book’s release, while fans who pre-order the memoir will also be entered into a prize draw to win an exclusive personalised and signed print.

A statement announcing the book last year said it would contain all of Daltrey’s experiences over the decades with The Who but also his solo career. It will focus particularly on how Britain has changed since he was born in 1944.

Daltrey first spoke about writing his memoirs back in 2009. “It’s probably time,” he said. “Just the story of my life and the things I’ve done, you know, it’s kind of interesting. And when I look at the juxtapositions of things – you know, like being the singer in The Who to being a fish farmer, and being a film star to being a beef farmer, there’s all these swings and roundabouts in my life that are so juxtaposed.”
