As long-time readers of this site may recall, there was once a tagline used to describe the ethos of Glorious Noise: “Rock and roll can change your life.”
And now I must report with some sadness that it can change lives in a way that I’d prefer not to imagine.
A few weeks ago I wrote about Ray Davies becoming knighted by the Queen.
And a couple weeks before that I wrote about how Roger Daltrey was working with Rolls-Royce to create a bespoke version of the Wraith motorcar.
Now the two subjects have come together.
The Who version of the Rolls Wraith has come out. It features the artwork of Mike McInnery: the album cover of Tommy is painted on the hood and the birds that are also part of the cover art flit about on the fenders and C-pillars.
But that is but one of nine “Inspired by British Music” cars that has been developed.
