HM Queen Elizabeth II, 1926-2022

“I am, like everyone else, immensely saddened by the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her devotion to duty and service to this country, as well as those of the Commonwealth, is something that was admired by people the world over.
My generation was lucky to have her in our lives as someone who brought us all closer together and bridged divides.
A ray of light in a sometimes very dark world.
What a great woman. 
She will be truly missed.”

Roger Daltrey

“I’m very sad. Elizabeth was a great and strong Queen. But I am happy to have Charles as King. He is a good man. So I have conflicted emotions. Elizabeth’s funeral will be a turning point for our country. It’s time to think about how we want our future to unfold. There is always hope.”

  1. We will not see the likes of her nor her husband again. From a generation who didn’t line cry and have to display their every emotion on social media. Long live the king!

    Beautifully statement from both Roger and Pete. The Who are and always will be a patriotic band who love their country and that is why we love The Who and our Queen. The Queen is dead. God bless her. Long live the king.

    Awesome statements. In true Mod fashion the Who are rebels with taste and class. As a British born UK, American and Australian citizen I am still not over the loss of our greatest monarch.

    Love reign over me! God save the Queen!
