A new 20 minute interview with Roger Daltrey has been posted on the official Who website. Shortly after arriving in L.A. from Tokyo to visit the Daltrey/Townshend Teen Cancer Unit at UCLA, a jet-lagged Roger Daltrey took the time and trouble to call the editor of thewho.com on Skype to talk about his Japan tour and the challenges of performing ‘Tommy’ and ‘Quadrophenia.’
During the course of the 20 minute conversation, in which he answers some questions put by fans, Roger also discussed his hopes of establishing more Teen Cancer units in the USA. The UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program, which will serve teens and young adult cancer patients at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center opened last year. The new program, which is the first of its kind in the U.S., continues to build on the previous successful efforts of the Teenage Cancer Trust, which has helped fund 19 special teen cancer units in the United Kingdom.
The vision of the UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program is to ensure that every young person receives the best possible care and professional support to help them meet the physical and emotional challenges of a cancer diagnosis. The belief is that teenagers and young adults shouldn’t stop enjoying their youth just because they have cancer.
