    Pete Townshend's memoir will publish in 2012. The Who guitarist has been working on the tome for quite some time -- since the '90s. He must be measuring his words carefully. Townshend released a statement, saying, "Rock 'n' Roll is a tough career, however cynically or comically it is portrayed by its detractors. I am lucky to be alive and to have such a crazy story to tell, full of wild adventures and creative machinations. I am happy that I am able to write my book myself, in my own 'voice'."

    The tentative title, according to Rolling Stone, is Who He?.

    Do you want to read Pete Townshend's long-time-in-the-making memoir? I do. Sounds like a fascinating read.
