The Who frontman who famously sang “I Can’t Explain” is going to do his best to try.

Roger Daltrey’s long-awaited memoir will hit shelves in August 2018, according to multiple reports. Blink Publishing won the rights to the rock icon and repeat Stern Show guest’s forthcoming tell-all in a nine-way auction.

In addition to behind-the-scenes tales of the 73-year-old’s ascension to rock royalty, Daltrey’s book will reportedly touch upon a variety of broader themes, including how Britain has changed in his lifetime.

“It’s great that I’ve found a young, enthusiastic publisher, an upstart in the world of books, to publish my story. It feels like the right fit,” Daltrey said in a statement. “I’ve always resisted the urge to ‘do the memoir’ but I finally feel I have enough perspective. I’ve been lucky enough to live in interesting times – I’ve witnessed society, music and culture change beyond recognition.”

Daltrey, of course, shared more than a few of those tales with Howard when he returned to the Stern Show in May of 2015 to discuss the Who’s then-upcoming 50th anniversary tour. Listen to him reveal which song he has vowed to never perform again (below) and get more from the epic conversation here.
