Pete Townshend is gearing up for both the Who's Quadrophenia & More Tour of North America and especially for the October 8 publication of his memoir, "Who I Am." In a new blog entry on the Who's official web site, Townshend wrote that he'll be doing "two weeks of PR" for the book in October, prior to the November 1 launch of the Who tour, and that he plans "to tell some of the more dodgy stories that my publisher's legal department have removed from the book. 1,000 pages cut to 500. There are a lot of dodgy stories left over." Townshend has lined up five days of book signings and appearances starting October 8 at the New York City Public Library and including stops in Philadelphia, Ridgewood, N.J., and Boston. Townshend also wrote that he finished recording an audio version of the book over the weekend, and that he's also recorded "seven new demos" for his next musical project, "Floss." Townshend also recounted the Who's performance at the closing ceremony of the Summer Olympics Games: "The Olympics gig nearly didn't happen for us -- Roger (Daltrey) and I weren't certain that two old geezers should be there singing about our generation, but so glad we did it. The day itself was immense fun. Really well organized. Backstage, it felt like being a part of a great circus, with ballet dancers, mime artists, street-party trucks and literally thousands of workers. The Spice Girls were in the dressing room next door and seemed so happy to be there, looking spectacular, practicing their vocals (and really singing by the way) and sharing make up bags. I got a few tips. Liam Gallagher and his mates in Beady Eye were mooching about, as were the guys from Kaiser Chiefs (who played 'Pinball Wizard' and were glad to hear I approved)." The Who stops in Detroit on November 24 at Joe Louis Arena.
