Progrography

Roger Daltrey
One of the great talents in rock, Roger Daltrey's voice was perhaps The Who's most recognizable instrument. His performances on songs like "Love Reign O'er Me," "Won't Get Fooled Again" and "Who Are You" are the stuff of legend, spit out with the seven million subtle shadings of impotence and outrage that define youth. Commodity that it is, Daltrey's voice has been put to occasionally ignoble use in his solo career ("Quicksilver Lightning" comes to mind), often singing material written by others. His solo catalog reminds me of the "fake" fire my folks have in their fireplace comprised in part of a fan and some red tinsel; it looks like real fire from a distance, but try to get close to it and the heat's not there. That said, Daltrey's solo work may be the better avenue for Who fans looking to expand their world, since it often sounds like the genuine article.
