London, Nov 25 (ANI): English rock guitarist Pete Townshend has revealed that he once trained as a ballet dancer.

The Who guitarist is famous for his eccentric stage antics, including destroying the equipment after every performance, along with his band mates.

However, the rock legend said that he once trained in a much more refined discipline.

“I did a short stint as a sort of Billy Elliot. My father wasn’t keen and the ballet mistress beat me, the Mirror quoted him, as saying.

The 62-year-old also said that the band could have made many more albums but he chose to give priority to his family ahead of his music. (ANI)
