The Who’s Roger Daltrey takes us on a rumbustious ride through his stellar career. Scraps with Keith, scrapes with death, plus the brand new solo album he’s made with the help of Pete Townshend (could it be Who’s last?). Meanwhile the free cover mount CD collects R&B nuggets from the birth of Mod. Bobby Parker, Chris Kenner, Ernie K-Doe and Rosco Gordon are among 15 tracks of shakin’ and shimmyin’. Also in this issue: Ry Cooder slides on, Courtney Barnett dodges superstardom, Yes divide and conquer, Sister Rosetta Tharpe gets her due. Plus Beatles’ PR guru Derek Taylor, Johnny Cash’s secret poetry, the Texan Thai pop of Khruangbin, the madness of ZTT, Unknown Mortal Orchestra branch out, inside the eternal Forever Changes, Steeleye Span unpicked, Gaz Coombes portrays himself (in 3D) and Derek Smalls revisits the dawn and dusk of Spinal Tap.
