Simon Townshend Guitar and vocals
Doug Boyle Guitar
Geraint Watkins Keyboards
John Hogg Bass
Jody Linscott Percussion
Billy Nicholls Backing vocals
Steve Weston Harmonica
Ben Townshend Drums
Katie Jacoby Violin
Simon Townshend, brother of Pete, you will, of course, know very well from countless Who shows.
Doug Boyle on guitar; Doug played guitar for several years with Robert Plant and has played for Nigel Kennedy and in recent years has been a member of Caravan.
Geraint Watkins, Welshman and king of the keyboards, has played for Dave Edmunds, Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler and Slim Chance.
John Hogg on bass, from Indie band Moke, known, appropriately enough, for their 1990s single, ‘My Degeneration’.
Jody Linscott, a regular on Who shows and solo shows for both Roger and Pete.
Likewise, Billy Nicholls, a major part of The Who family for so many years.
Steve ‘West’ Weston – one of Britain’s top blues harp players – you’ll know him from the Going Back Home album which Roger made with Wilko Johnson. Steve is the harp player of choice for Mud Morganfield (Muddy Water’s son) when Morganfield plays shows in the UK.
On drums, Ben Townshend, son of Simon T, who has played on several of Simon’s albums and albums by The Cornerstones.
And who else but . . . the fabulous Katie Jacoby on violin.
Roger’s special guest on all twelve shows will be Leslie Mendelson.
