Cringing Cult of Celebrity
  • Further to the piece about Roger Daltrey and Shepherds Bush. His cousin Brends was my best friend. We were a couple of years older than Roger. We met him once in Ravenscourt Park, he was a skinny little 14 yearold. He lived in the downstairs basement and ground floor a big ols Victorian house In Shepherds Bush . Brenda and her family had the top 2 storeys....I think. I've lived in Australia for 40 years and can't now remember the name of the street. I remember the fun of seeing little Roger Daltrey fronting The Who and on P covers. I loved saying, 'I know him.'
  • roger daltry lived in percy road ,shepherds bush. and went to victoria rd school. when he was eleven he moved to bedford park.the high numbers ,detour and who(all the same group)played at the GOLDHAWK SOCIAL CLUB friday or saturday nights . they NEVER played at the goldhawk pub how do i know? i was a mod and lived in shepherds bush in the early 60s and went to the goldhawk social!
  • Pete Townshend and Rog Daltrey Didn't live off the Goldhawk road. The Goldhawk pub was an early haunt of the Who and venue for their early gigs but Townshend lived in whitehall gardens in Acton and Daltrey in the south acton/bedford park area.
