He also compares the European Union to the mafia
The Whos Roger Daltrey says Brexit wont affect British musicians.
The frontman, who has previously defended his pro-Brexit views, was asked whether Brexit would be bad for British rock music.
No. Whats it got to do with the rock business? he told Sky News. How are you going to tour in Europe? the interviewer replied.
Oh dear. As if we didnt tour Europe before the f****** EU, he said. Oh give it up!
Daltrey then compared the EU to the mafia, saying: If you want to be signed up to be ruled by a f****** mafia, you do it. Like being goverened by FIFA.
Speaking of his pro-Brexit views in an interview with The Telegraph last year, Daltrey said: Im not anti-Europe, Im anti-Brussels, but people dont get the distinction Thats why Im so angry about it. I want someone at least answerable to me that I can say: F**k off, youre useless!
The Who will be heading out on an American tour later this year.

For me, one of the nearly essential elements of Rock is the anger. Without the anger, a lot of music is really Pop and not Rock. But the Who have always been seething. I like that.
Roger won’t get fooled again.
The punk meets the Godfather
Well just ignore U.K. voted to leave the “mafia”.
You better you bet!
‘Who the f are E.U.’?
People try to put us d-down
Yep. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss. F that. Loved his episode on CIS - perhaps the creepiest episode ever. No one saw that coming.
I guess he didn’t die before he got old :)
Read it-”Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite”. Really good book. Always loved Daltrey, he always seemed a down to earth guy, at least by rock star standards.

Won’t be fooled again! BOOM!
I saw The Who at the Atlanta Omni 1975. Fun concert. Lots of laser beams reflecting off of 2 mirror balls extending from the ceiling. Whos Next was my favorite album.
And Parliament just overturned that vote.
There’s many millions of fans that would raise all kinds of hell.
The Brexit mess is what happens when there is an unelected party leader.
The party elites (mafia) gathered and selected Theresa May (a remainer).
