Roger Daltrey, lead singer and founder of legendary rock band The Who, was due to perform a special show in California on Saturday to raise funds for Teen Cancer America The organisation, which aims to improve the quality of life for teenagers with cancer, is very close to his heart. SOUNBDITE, Roger Daltrey, singer, saying: "Teenagers with cancer really, really suffer in so many ways. It's the time of your life when you have great expectations and everything's going to be possible. A time in your life when you look in the mirror in the morning and you might have a spot on your nose and you go, 'Oh my god I can't go out.' Just imagine being told later on that day that you have bone cancer or something." Having just wrapped on The Who's Quadrophenia and More tour in Europe, Daltrey doesn't rule out the possibity of another album from The Who coming out SOUNBDITE, Roger Daltrey, singer, saying: "Well you never know, the gap between that one was 25 years or 24 years or something, not that we've got 24 years left in us." Since 2000, The Who has performed shows for the Teenage Cancer Trust and now Teen Cancer America, with proceeds from the concerts and DVDs going to the organizations.
