Roger Daltrey Teaches Class At Oklahoma University

On Wednesday, October 21, student musicians at the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma attended a master class taught by legendary Who singer Roger Daltrey.

The iconic performer, interviewed by Flaming Lips manager and CEO of the new school Scott Booker, answered questions from the student audience and met with The Flaming Lips who were also in the audience.

"I'm very impressed with your college," Daltrey stated before touching on topics such as interpersonal band dynamics, the musicality of Pete Townshend's legendary guitar destruction, and the importance hearing protection.

Performance class students learn and perform important songs from contemporary music history and are currently working on The Who's 1965 single, "I Can't Explain."
