Pete Townshend has released a new symphonic version of The Who’s classic Quadrophenia. But the British musical elite isn’t allowing the album, featuring tenor Alfie Boe, to be considered for the British classical music charts.
Townshend took to Facebook to voice his displeasure.
Before you think that Townshend is looking to add more accolades to his extensive list of them, he is really more concerned with the artists who took part in the project.
Pete said that he wanted the young, talented team behind the album to get the credit they deserve….even though he’s a ‘rock dinosaur’.
Here’s a video of Love Reign O’er Me from Classic Quadrophenia. Thoughts?
