Roger Daltrey working on memoir

Roger Daltrey

Roger Daltrey is ready to look back.

The Who's longtime frontman has a book deal with US and UK publishers for a currently untitled memoir scheduled to come out next August.

According to the publishers, Daltrey will not only reflect on his decades with The Who and on his solo career, but also on how Britain has changed in his lifetime.

Daltrey, 73, was born in London during World War II and was one of rock's biggest stars in the 1960s and '70s, known for his vocals on My Generation, Won't Get Fooled Again and other hits.

Daltrey said in a statement that the book would capture his head-turning rise from factory worker to musical idol.
