Roger Daltrey took time out to chat about his process for working on the upcoming Who album. Daltrey, who was taking part in a Q&A on the recently wrapped "Rock Legends Cruise 6," explained how he goes about taking Pete Townshend's song demos and teases the music out until he finds the proper top melody to convey the true meaning of the song.
Daltrey, who's entering the studio next week to begin tracking the songs for the Who's long-awaited followup to 2006's Endless Wire, described how the vocal tracks come about: ["I'm going in to a demo studio — a little tiny studio with Bob Pridden, our old sound man, our stage man. And I do sketches. And I hover about the melodies — I sketch like an artist sketches and when I hear something that I think is connecting, I go for it. Once I've got the sketch, I can do it over and over again easily as anything. To me, it's all about connecting the words that Pete's written, and connecting them with a spirit and a vibration that touches people and moves people. If you don't do that, then you've failed."] SOUNDCUE (:34 OC: . . . then you've failed)
