Pete Townshend says he "hates" The Who and that he regrets signing up for the band's upcoming farewell tour.
As well as the tour which kicks off in Glasgow on November 30, The Who are celebrating their 50th anniversary with the 2CD set The Who Hits 50, released on November 3.
But guitarist Townshend says he isn't looking forward to the year-long jaunt, even if playing live is second nature to him.

The news was confirmed by his family and publicist following days of online rumours started by a hoax. He'd been suffering from liver disease.
Despite their difficult and often violent relationship, drummer Baker said last night: "A very sad day. Goodbye my friend." Clapton added: "He was a great musician and composer, and a tremendous inspiration to me."

Nick Mason believes Pink Floyd's final album The Endless River won't translate to the road - and so the band are unlikely to tour.

Fleetwood Mac Songs 'Profound', Says Buckingham

>>> Bruce Henne, TeamRock.com - 10/17/2014

Fleetwood Mac have confirmed they are planning to record their new album in 2015.
Following the return of keyboardist Christine McVie, the band - minus Stevie Nicks - spent two months in a Los Angeles studio this past spring working on a batch of new songs by McVie and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham.
Unavailable for the sessions because she was in Nashville recording her collection of lost tracks, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault, Nicks returned in time for the group's autumn North American tour, which has just been extended to next March.
However, she will be involved in the recording process for the new Fleetwood Mac album.
