The Who reconnecting with new tour, album

NEW YORK, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey say they are thankful that a new album and tour led to reforming their iconic British rock band, The Who.

The Who may be missing drummer Keith Moon and bass player John Entwistle, who died in 1978 and 2002 respectively, but the New York Daily News reported that both Townshend and Daltrey have loved touring together and creating the band's first album since 1982.

"To me, this record and this tour feel the most connected the Who has been," said Townshend. "This isn't Roger and I deciding to do a tour to help save John, to give him something to do. We're not doing this out of a sense of duty. It's because we've really hit on something."

"When we're onstage," Daltrey said, "and I'm singing and Pete's playing the guitar, it's like there's this little space between us -- and that space is The Who."

The band released its newest album, "Endless Wire," Oct. 30 and has been performing singles from it as part of its tour, which is scheduled to wrap up Dec. 11.
