    Pete Townshend of The Who is set to give the first John Peel lecture in Manchester, England later this month. According to BBC News, Townshend's lecture is titled "Can John Peelism Survive the Internet?," where he will tackle the subject of how musicians can survive in the digital age.

    That's a relevant topic.

    In case you didn't know who John Peel is, he was a famed English radio DJ who became an icon for his love of music and his inviting on-air personality. He passed away in 2004.
