BLUES music, ROCK music, and STUTTERING
When writing singles for the Who in the mid-1960s how did songwriter Pete Townshend take from the history of popular music, specifically American blues and R&B, to create a uniquely English synthesis of urban pop blues? This subject is discussed in relation to Pete Townshend's stuttering song 'My Generation' (1965) looking specifically at what factors influenced the song's 'authentic' mod 'voice': firstly, in what ways is this song a response to the search for an 'authentic' blues voice in the English R&B scene of the mid-1960s? And secondly what influence did the blues and folk revival led by the writers Samuel Charters and Paul Oliver, specifically their interpretation of the voice in the country blues, play in shaping Townshend's interpretation of authenticity?
