The Who guitarist Pete Townshend said he was glad late drummer Keith Moon and bassist John Entwistle were no longer in the band.

In a candid interview with Rolling Stone, Townshend said the former members were “fucking difficult to play with.”

“It’s not going to make Who fans very happy, but thank God they’re gone,” Townshend said bluntly. “Because they were fucking difficult to play with.

However, Townshend expressed gratitude for singer Roger Daltrey.
