He doesn’t sound happy about it!
Back in 1973, The Who released their theatrical rock-oprea album Quadrophenia. The album revolved around a character who discovers rock music for the first time, and follows how the music changes his life. In 1979, the album was adapted into a movie, which did well in the box office.
It’s almost been 40 years since the movies release, and recently there were talks of a sequel or reboot of the project. In a time where a lot of movies are seeing later sequels, or reboots (Star Wars, King Kong, Beauty and the Beast etc.), there are mixed emotions about the upcoming anticipated project. Lead vocalist of The Who Roger Daltrey, however, is pretty heated about the possibility of the project. He doesn’t want to see this happen at all, and sounded off in a recent interview!
“It’s irrelevant, it’s f****** irrelevant. It’s got no meaning at all. ‘Quadrophenia’ was a moment in time. That’s the whole idea of it. I find all of all of the other things done to ‘Quadrophenia’ apart from the original album and when The Who played it on stage to be a no no. They just don’t mean anything, what’s the point? The film captured the moment in time. They’ve taken the rock out of ‘Quadrophenia’ and made some complete nonsense from it.”– Daltrey said.
How do you feel about the project? Let us know!
