The Who Plot 2011 Tour

Plus, Daltrey considers a Jimmy Page collaboration

October 28, 2010

The Who are contemplating a tour next year, according to singer Roger Daltrey. "We're in the planning stages – but we do plan on doing something," says Daltrey. "I would like to be on the road playing as many different kinds of shows as we possibly could. Maybe we'll do Quadrophenia one night and the greatest hits the next night. Maybe Tommy, too, if I can still sing it." Daltrey is also interested in recording with Jimmy Page. "I've always wanted to do something with Jimmy," he says. "Mainly because, what the hell is he doing? What an amazing waste of a talent. He's a genius."

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
