Roger Daltrey urges younger rockers to run his charity concertsMarch 30th, 2009 - 8:56 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, March 30 (ANI): The Who frontman Roger Daltrey has been calling upon Oasis star Noel Gallagher and Stereophonics singer Kelly Jones to take over his role as a charity gig organiser.
Daltrey has been managing the fundraisers for his Teenage Cancer Trust project for the last nine years.
And the 65-year-old now feels it is time for him to step down and pass the beacon to younger stars.
“I would like to take the model of what we’ve done here and concentrate on getting it started in other countries now, ” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“It does take an awful lot of energy. I call it my ‘yearly breakdown’. I would love to find someone from a younger generation to take over from me,” he added.
Meanwhile, a flattered Jones revealed he was yet to take a decision on taking up the role.He said: “(Daltrey has) asked me and Noel a couple of times to our faces. If you’re in a band and you can help people who are worse off, it’s not much to ask for.
“It’s a big job and we’re like, ‘Come on Roger, you’d do it a lot better than us’, and he carries on doing it. I’ve never really given it as much thought as answering it with a serious tone. We’ll see. You see what happens in life.” (ANI)
