The Who frontman Roger Daltrey is cautious over his plans to produced a biopic about later drummer Keith Moon.
“It’s so difficult because biopics generally don’t work,” Daltrey says to Billboard. “The only one I’ve seen that really works was the one on Brian Wilson (2014’s Love & Mercy), where they used two different actors. I loved that one because it had the balls to be a movie, and I want to make a movie, not just a biopic.”
Daltrey has been working on the film biography of Moon since 2013.
Daltrey also said the Who probably won’t be doing anything related to 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival, where the group performed back in 1969.
The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on the original Woodstock site is planning a series of events for the weekend of August 16-18.
“August in America is too hot for me to work anymore,” says Daltrey. “You can’t redo Woodstock because the stars of Woodstock were the audience. You can celebrate the date, but you can’t redo (the festival). Nobody’s approached us about it, anyway, but I really wouldn’t be interested in something like that.”
