Roger Daltrey Turning His Barn Into A Tourist Hotel
Thursday, August 8, 2013
Roger Daltrey has tried several other hats apart from fronting the Who; actor, trout fishery proprietor -- but now holiday hotelier??? Daltrey has been granted permission by local authorities to transform the cattle shed on his 400-acre estate in East Sussex, England into a holiday getaway. Planning agent Julian Bluck told Express.co.uk, "The farm is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty and has a peaceful setting with good access to footpaths thus creating a desirable environment for those seeking a quiet rural holiday."
Over the past 40 years, Roger Daltrey has released a total of eight solo studio sets. He told us that when he first began releasing solo albums in 1973, it was only to bide time between Who projects -- and was never given the same amount of energy or importance as anything related to the Who: "And when the Who resurfaced, it was all put back in a cupboard. Y'know, it was really a weird period for me, because the record companies were kind of nervous of getting totally behind me 'cause they thought I would leave the Who. Little did they know me, I didn't have any ego to be a solo person at all. It's my band, how can I leave my own band (laughs)" )
