Washington, January 22 (ANI): Pete Townshend is grateful to his fellow rocker Roger Daltrey for backing him while he faced child pornography charges.

The Whos guitarist was taken into custody after being suspected of accessing child pornography websites in 2003, though police found no evidence of child abuse images.

The songwriter was eventually cleared of the allegation following his claims that he had been engaged in research.

And now the 63-year-old has expressed his gratitude towards bandmate Daltrey for his support during the entire ordeal.

“Roger bravely stood by me when I really couldn”t speak for myself. He took a chance, as did Jerry Hall and some other people who spoke up for me, Contactmusic quoted him as telling The Daily Express.

They made their public statements of belief in me several months before it was established there was no evidence against me,” he added. (ANI)
