Zak Starkey's work with:
The Who

""|  summary  |  releases  |  live  |


Zak Starkey has been a major Who fan most all of his life! When he was about eight, he found Meaty Beaty Big And Bouncy in his parent's record collection and was hooked. He also came to realize that he already knew the drummer - his "Uncle" Keith!

Over the years, he not only spent social time with Keith, but worked musically with Entwistle and Daltrey on a number of their solo projects. In 1994, he was in "the almost Who" when Roger hit the road for his Daltrey Sings Townshend Tour. But in 1996, Zak would find himself in the real thing - THE WHO!

Pete says (Nov 10, 2004) that if all goes well in the studio, that the band will tour during the first half of 2005! Then he said on March 21st, 2005 that there'd be no '05 Who activity. And then the announcement May 17th of The Who's only 2005 appearance at the Samsung's Four Seasons of Hope charity event! And then the clarification on the 19th that it won't be "The Who", but instead, just "The Tw(h)o" - only Pete and Roger. Then "The Who" (without Zak, who was on tour with Oasis), perform at Live 8.
