Roger Daltrey looking to hand Teenage Cancer Trust shows to Noel Gallagher

Roger Daltrey looking to hand Teenage Cancer Trust shows to Noel Gallagher
For the last seventeen years The Teenage Cancer Trust has benefitted from a series of fundraising gigs, allowing big acts like Muse to do some very good work. Behind the scenes Roger Daltrey of The Who has been organising every year along with a larger team, but seventeen years is a long time… and he’s thinking of change by 2020.
Daltrey told NME: “I’d like to do 20 years and that’d be enough for me... I’ll probably hand it over to Noel [Gallagher] or someone. One of the younger mob.” He explained “I think in three years time, it’ll be time for me to hand over to er to find someone else to pick up my reigns.  I’m sure there’ll be someone be there to do it. I will warn them that it’s much more work than they’d think it is. But it’s the most rewarding work that you’ll ever do, not financially or in anything like that, but it fills you up with something money can’t buy. It’s amazing.”
Which begs the question, who else could do it? Alongside Noel you’ve probably got Jarvis Cocker as a culture roaming star from the same era, or you could come up to date. It’s a little strange to see Noel referred to as one of the younger mob!
