Pete Townshendâs much-anticipated memoir will be published next fall by Harper Collins, the legendary Who guitarist has announced. Townshend describes the book, titledÂ Who He?, as an âessential rite of passage.â
âI am lucky to be alive and to have such a crazy story to tell, full of wild adventures and creative machinations,â Townshend said, in a prepared statement. âI am happy that I am able to write my book myself, in my own âvoiceâ that many readers will be hearing for the first time.â
Townshendâs book agent is Ed Victor, who also represented Keith Richardsâ 2010 memoir,Â Life.Rock star autobiographies have been hot of late, with memoirs by Steven Tyler and Sammy Hagar each achieving best-seller status. Harper Collins executive editor David Hirshey will work with Townshend on edits for the book. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
