Pete Townshend's autobiography, "Who I Am," hits the bookstands today.
For his writing talent alone, it's worth picking up.
Townshend's writing always settles the argument about which band was better — the Rolling Stones or the Who. Hands down, Townshend could write circles around either Mick Jagger or Keith Richards.
While admittedly the Stones produced more approachable hooks than the Who, it was the Who's unapologetic journey into the deeper themes of life — led by the prose of Townshend — that gives them the edge as the best band to come out of London.
Rock non-fiction devotees should enjoy this one.
