Who I Am

Written by Pete Townshend | Narrated by Pete Townshend
The story of a man whose unbelievable tales — near death experiences, inventing the rock and roll guitar smash, getting banned for life from Holiday Inns, among others — are only rivaled by his status as a musical great. After a legendary career, Townshend bares all in his much-anticipated memoir that The New York Times calls “as intimate… as a therapy session.”
