In the world of rock and roll, there are few singers that can be considered true legends and master of the art. Think about it – who sits at the top of that storied list?

Freddie Mercury.

Robert Plant.

Mick Jagger.

Steven Tyler.

We could go on, of course.

Being a frontman for a rock and roll band isn’t easy. It takes style, substance, a great voice and a huge set of…pipes to keep an audience engaged. There aren’t many singers who can command a crowd better than The Who’s Roger Daltrey.

At 71 years of age, Daltrey is still on the road with Pete Townshend as The Who. They’re currently on a massive North American tour, playing to sell-out crowds of fans both old and new. Even though Daltrey has been singing (and screaming) for decades, on this current run, he’s arguably sounding as good as he ever has. Perhaps even better.

On Tuesday, the iconic singer visited The Howard Stern Show to talk about the band’s new compilation, The Who At 50, which celebrates the enduring legacy of The Who. Who compilations are plentiful, and the selling point for this latest is the inclusion of a new song, Be Lucky.

Roger Daltrey has chatted with Howard before, and the two have a natural rapport. Howard is never shy about letting his guests know if he’s a fan, and in the case of his interview with Daltrey, the King of All Media wears his love of The Who loud and proud.
