WILL.I.AM REMIXES MY GENERATION
A fresh remix of The Who’s “My Generation” is coming to raise money for Haitian earthquake relief. The Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am. tells Billboard.com that he was commissioned to remix the iconic 1965 rock anthem, which will air during the Super Bowl XLIV broadcast on Feb. 7 — where the Who is performing at halftime — and then go on sale via iTunes.
“It’s the Who, their song, and then I altered the lyric to fit my generation now and then have Slash on it,” will.i.am says. “It was awesome. I loved that song way before this even came up, and talking to Pete Townshend on the phone is like, ‘What?! I’m talking to Pete Townshend on the phone?!’ That was awesome, being able to just hear their advice and everything. Those guys are just awesome.”
