On a recent episode of Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, Roger Daltrey discusses growing up in post-WWII England, Elvis, skiffle groups and building his first two guitars. He doesn’t go into a huge amount of detail, but it was interesting to hear his determination to make music without the money to buy a “real” instrument. Anyway, interesting show, especially for Who fans. If you’re not a regular, this podcast is NSFW and also not very friendly toward the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Thus, viewer discretion is advised.
It takes real spirit to want something bad enough to make it yourself. Thanks for the link.
