Roger Daltrey was forced to play his own "Substitute" at The Who's annual charity concert. The benefit show for Teenage Cancer Trust took place Tuesday night at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire.
Daltrey led The Who Band in a rendition of "Substitute" after the original guest vocalists had to cancel, and then closed the night with "Young Man Blues." He also explained that Who guitarist Pete Townshend wasn't in attendance because he was "at home looking after the dogs."
Daltrey added that Townshend would probably rather do anything but hear his own songs played back to him, joking that Pete doesn't even like playing them himself.
This year's lineup of guest singers included Eddie Vedder, Liam Gallagher, Wilko Johnson, Geddy Lee, and many more. They were all backed by The Who Band, which was made up of Simon Townshend, Pino Palladino, Billy Nicholls, Frank Simes, Loren Gold, John Coury, and drummer Zak Starkey.
