** In the early 2000s, Pete began personally researching sexual abuse in children under the belief that he may had been molested as a child and didn't remember. Unfortunately, his research led him to a child pornography site, which landed him on a sex offender's list for eight years.

** Townshend had also burned out on Music/{{Tommy}} by the beginning of the 1970s, particularly as it [[ToughActToFollow threatened to eclipse]] everything the band had done at that point and was the yardstick by which all subsequent Who/Townshend works were measured. He was faced with the task of replacing ''Tommy'' as the centerpiece of the Who's live set. Unfortunately for him, ''Lifehouse'' and ''Rock Is Dead--Long Live Rock'' were abandoned, and ''Music/{{Quadrophenia}}'' suffered technical issues live which led to friction that threatened to split up the band. These events, and Keith Moon's tragic death in 21978, may have continued to haunt Townshend at least until the first breakup of the Who in 1982.

** A band whose image was largely built around [[RockersSmashGuitars their at-the-time-shocking and revolutionary act of wrecking their equipment onstage]] and for wrecking hotel rooms and causing havoc on tour[[note]]The Holiday Inn chain banned them for life from their hotels in the 1960's[[/note]] had the misfortune of being in constant debt for much of that decade, until {{Tommy}} became a success in 1969. This, and whatever "legal matters" the band went through over this behavior became a constant source of pressure for the band, and the group was very close to breaking up many times. It can easily be said, then, that any attempts by the band of, erm, "sell(ing) out", affixing a quirky pop song like "Pinball Wizard" onto ''Tommy'' to help sales, or playing Woodstock [[MoneyDearBoy for the money]] would be [[JustifiedTrope very well justified and understandable]]. The inside fold out of ''Live At Leeds'' shows bills sent to the band for their antics and instrument destruction

* TroubledProduction[=/=]WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''Lifehouse'', the project that started out as an idea for another RockOpera but failed and became ''Music/WhosNext'' partially due to Townshend's inability to explain the idea and make anyone understand it.

** A second abandoned ConceptAlbum project, ''Rock Is Dead--Long Live Rock'' chronicling the history of the Who, was worked on in 1972. According the TheOtherWiki, tracks salvaged from the piece included the singles-only tracks, "Join Together", "Relay" and ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Long Live Rock]]", "Put The Money Down" from ''Odds And Sods'', and early versions of the ''Music/{{Quadrophenia}}'' tracks, "Is It In My Head", "The Punk And The Godfather" and "Love Reign O'er Me", among other tracks.
