Needless to say I loved reading Thanks A Lot Mr. Kibblewhite. The Who are my favorite Rock artists. I didn’t know what to expect from this book. Roger comes across as a very down-to-earth guy. Maybe the only ‘regular guy’ in The Who. It’s a short book and in some ways the best book about the Who, because Roger deals with personalities and not the music, equipment, or other details in the life of The Who.
Roger also covers his personal life from childhood until now.

Excerpt from the book:
The launch of the record’s accompanying tour. Another forty-two shows. Another three-month haul across North America. I was doing the launch on my own, as usual. Pete wanted nothing to do with promotion. He didn’t want to do interviews or photo shoots. Nothing. So I was on my own in the car, trying to build up the enthusiasm, and I just made the decision. That was it. This would be our last tour.
