Noteworthy Now

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have been very generous in lending their talent to fund raising campaigns to support organizations in the fight against cancer, particularly in young people.  The pair of Who legends also stepped up and donated a million dollars to New York's Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for the establishment of a lounge facility where teens with cancer can relax in comfort and, as Daltrey said at its opening, hopefully make '...their hospital experience as positive as possible.' Stocked with a variety of comfortable seating, top-notch HD big screens, awesome sound, games of all kinds and an eraseable graffiti wall, The Lounge will go a long way toward doing just that.  Townshend and Daltrey have contributed toward the creation of close to 30 similar program spaces in the UK and 9 others in the US.  The Who lead singer calls their combined effort a way to express their appreciation to teenagers because the success of the Who would never have come about without the energized teens that supported them in the band's early days.
