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."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
