Roger Daltrey Admits the Who Were ‘Too F—-ing Loud’

Roger Daltrey admitted the Who were “too fucking loud” in their heyday and said his hearing problems are a “penalty” for his band’s behavior. The group was once listed as the loudest band in the world, being registered at delivering 136db of sound at an open-air show in 1976. While others have staked the same claim over the years, the Guinness World Records organization no longer records the feat since it’s connected with permanent ear damage.

Roger Daltrey Claims He Lost Money On The Last Who Album

Roger Daltrey maintains he's about $10,000 out of pocket after recording the last Who album — 2019's Top Two hit, WHO. Daltrey, who along with the band, is back out on tour and spoke to Britain's The Independent about the state of the record business and explained, “Musicians cannot earn a living in the record industry any more. That is ridiculous, and they’re being robbed blind by streaming and the record companies, because the old deals with record companies that existed in the '70s, '80s, and '90s — they’re still working on the same percentage breaks.”
