Roger Daltrey will release his autobiography in October.
The Who frontman has revealed his long-awaited memoir will be titled 'Thanks A Lot Mr. Kibblewhite: My Story' - which references his strict school headmaster - and will hit stores in the UK on October 18 and the US five days later.
The artwork for the book, which features a black and white photo of the 74-year-old singer in his youth, was revealed on the band's Facebook page, who also announced the 'My Generation' hitmaker will mark the release of his autobiography with a signing session at the 2018 London Literature Festival at the Southbank Centre.
Fans who pre-order the memoir will also be entered into a prize draw to win an exclusive personalised and signed print.
The release announcement came just a few weeks after Roger admitted he was struggling to write his life story because concussions over the years have affected his memory.
He said: ''The scariest thing about the memoir is that I have had four serious concussions in my life. There are huge gaps and I wonder why. But there is no wonder why.''
Roger admits the worst head injury he suffered was when he was knocked unconscious by a microphone stand being swung by disgraced glam rocker Gary Glitter during rehearsals for a performance of The Who's rock opera 'Quadrophenia' in London's Hyde Park in 1996.
The 'Pinball Wizard' hitmaker said: ''I broke my eye socket. I was out for 20 minutes. I did the show with a patch holding my eye in. That is a little bit concerning.''
Gary's involvement in the show came a year before the 'Hello, Hello, I'm Back Again' singer was arrested for possessing child pornography and subsequently jailed.
They might sound like they're from the 70s, but they way they roll is very 2020.
