At a press conference in London today (July 18) announcing The Who‘s 36-date tour of North America, which kicks off this autumn, Townshend made his comments.
What I remember of the size of Mick Jagger’s penis – I remember it as being huge and extremely tasty.
The comment follows Keith Richards’ less complimentary words about his bandmate’s member, which he notoriously made in his autobiography, Life.
According to Rolling Stone, to laughs from bandmate Roger Daltrey, Townshend added: “I don’t remember anything about Roger’s… and wouldn’t dare to mention it. Let’s hope that makes the internet.”
The Who will be performing their 1973 album ‘Quadrophenia’ in its entirety on their newly announced US tour, which begins on November 1 in Sunrise, Florida, visiting Boston, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and more, finishing up in Providence, Rhode Island on February 26, 2013.
During the press conference, the band also spoke about their contribution to the Olympics. Of this, Daltrey said: “We’ve recorded a piece of music which I think is a fabulous ending for the Olympics. This country put some fabulous music into the world. It wasn’t really about The Who being a on a TV show. It’s about just making great music that is applicable to the end of that event, where you’ve had people who have given the last eight years of their lives to be there on that field doing their thing.”
