The Real Congregation :: Pete Townshend – Who He Is (Part One) :: 11/13/12
It’s been a long time comin’, and you knew it was bound to happen one day. Marc With a C geeks out about the work of his very favorite artist of all time, Pete Townshend. With the help of Cap Blackard, this episode focuses mainly on Pete’s work away from The Who from the years 1970-1982. We dissect the genesis of Lifehouse, Pete’s never fully completed prophetic tale of future times (which also may have helped invent the Internet as we know it), get really in-depth about our shared love of the Empty Glass and All The Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes albums, and have our minds blown by the sheer quality of Pete’s home demos.
If you’ve ever been curious about why Pete Townshend is Marc’s Star Wars, Harry Potter and Doctor Who all rolled into one, this initial installment of a two-part episode is the place for you to start!
