Opening the 2018 London Literature Festival, lead singer and founder of The Who, Roger Daltrey, joins writer and presenter Will Hodgkinson on our Royal Festival Hall stage to discuss his new memoir Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite: My Story.
In an engaging conversation Daltrey gives the inside story on the rise of British rock, and of his time as the vocalist in one of rock music’s era-defining bands. Separating myth from reality he reflects on his wild journey with the band through chart-topping hits, in-fighting, drugs, mayhem, trashed hotel rooms and the premature death of Keith Moon, as well as a life spanning a tumultuous time of change in Britain and America.
Southbank Centre is the home of literature and spoken word events in the UK, and the venue for London Literature Festival and Poetry International. Throughout the year we host talks, discussions, readings and more featuring bestselling authors, award-winning poets and inspirational writers.
