Roger Daltrey is showing no signs of taking it easy in 2019, with the long-planned Keith Moon biopic starting to finally take shape, prepping a new solo live album, along with recording a new album for the Who, and undertaking two sets of North American runs this year. Daltrey chatted with The Los Angeles Times and spoke about the coming year for him, explaining, "My biggest plan is to get a Keith Moon film started. It's very difficult because I don't want to make a biopic. I want to make a great film. They all seem to fall into the same trap, except for the Brian Wilson one, Love And Mercy, which was great. We'll be working on a new script. I'll get there; I've got the vision of what I want it to be."

He went on to say, "I'm also going to release a live album of my Tommy show that I just did with an orchestra, for the 50th anniversary of Tommy. This is the way Tommy should have always been played — with orchestrations and with the band. One mistake rock bands make is when they just have orchestras playing 'pads,' as I call them, music that could be played on a synthesizer. This Tommy has properly arranged orchestral, percussive pieces that stand up on their own. There's nothing schmaltzy in there."

Daltrey explained that for a friendship that goes back as far as the 1950's -- his and Pete Townshend's still isn't what fans imagine it to be: "It's a strange relationship. We're not close like buddies that go out. It's kind of like a family thing, like brothers. Although I've never had a brother. But maybe it's not like that. It's something really special. Maybe there's not a word for what our relationship is."

When talking about Townshend's lack of interest in starying far from the Who's most popular music on tour, Daltrey admitted: "He’s coming around to it now because we’ve done all the other stuff. In my solo shows I’ve done 'How Many Friends,' 'Dreaming From The Waist,' 'Athena,' and other songs the Who never really played. Pete won’t do 'Blue, Red, And Grey,' but I love it and I’ll do it. We’re talking now and coming up with ideas."

During our last chat with Roger Daltrey about the 2019 dates, he explained that a compromise needs to happen between playing new material, deep cuts, and the classic hits. He told us that during the Who's 2006/2007 dates behind Endless Wire, there was a marked difference with crowd reaction between the tried and true standards and the tunes from the new album: "It was alright -- but let's face it, it takes off when you get. . . I don't know If I wanna play the hits all the time. I don't wanna play them all the time, but we've got a huge body of work that can be explored of already familiar stuff with people. We couldn't do the whole of (The) Who By Numbers. (I) don't wanna do a whole album. I think it's just, like, a thing that everybody's doing. We wanna do something different."
