Classic Rock Legends Support Roger Daltrey Project

Share This:

Classic rock A-Listers including Bill Wyman, John Paul Jones, Ray Davies and Tom Jones descended upon London’s Victoria and Albert Museum on Nov. 13 for the unveiling of The Adoration Trilogy: In Search of Apollo, a mammoth work of art by renowned British photographer Alistair Morrison. The project is in collaboration with Roger Daltrey, as the pair created a mixed media artwork that involves over 60 rock legends.

Also at the event were Peter Frampton, Alice Cooper, Donovan, Carl Palmer, Paul Weller, Kenney Jones, Peter Gabriel and, of course, Daltrey.

Paraphrasing The Who’s website: “The complete triptych includes over 40 individual panels featuring the elite of rock music in a strange fictitious setting of dark archways and dimly lit tunnels. Morrison photographed each musician in various settings in the U.K. and in America and then painstakingly created the finished artwork, bringing everyone together into the dimly-lit setting by use of digital technology to piece together the many individual images to create this masterpiece. The project is to benefit both Teen Cancer America and the Teenage Cancer Trust, two charities close to the hearts of Daltrey and Pete Townshend.”

The piece will ultimately be part of a trilogy, with influential female musicians the focus for the second piece, and a third work depicting today’s rising stars.

Details have yet to be revealed how the fundraising will take place.
