Townshend to pen autobiography
The Who's Pete Townshend is set to write a memoir.
The guitarist and songwriter, known for such classics as My Generation, I Can See for Miles and the Tommy rock opera has a deal with HarperCollins for a book set to come out in autumn 2012.
In a statement released through the publisher the star, who turns 66 on Thursday, said the book was "not a vanity for me," but an "essential rite of passage".
The London-born musician has long been of rock's most introspective and self-consciously literary artists.
He was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990 as a member of The Who.
