Ken Sharp"While Wilkerson's love and admiration for Townshend's talent is evident on each page, the author aims and succeeds in presenting a well-balanced portrait of the Who visionary, warts and all. The book is unflinching in its account of the artist's battles with booze and drugs, his continual search for spiritual enlightenment guided by the teachings of Meher Baba and the legendary Daltrey-Townshend battles (one which led Townshend being sent to the hospital after taking a savage blow to the head from Daltrey during the 1973 Quadrophenia rehearsal sessions). Wilkerson also lends incisive coverage of some of the more controversial events in the artist's life including the erroneous reports of Townshend's homosexuality and the 2003 charges of suspicion of viewing child porn on the Internet, for which he has been exonerated."
