Weller and Daltrey to Collaborate?

In what could be the biggest collaboration since The Travelling Wilburys (well, maybe not that big), former Jam and Style Council frontman, Paul Weller, has signalled his interest in working with The Who’s Roger Daltrey.

Speaking to NME, Daltrey said:

“Paul Weller’s been talking about an idea that he’s been working on, which I’d love him to do. I’ve been very bad at finding material and he’s got this idea and he’s always said to me, ‘Why don’t you sing more?’ and I always say, ‘Find me some material’. So we’ll see if we can come up with something.”

The two men came together on Wednesday’s Teenage Cancer Trust bill – of which Daltrey is the patron – to perform The Who’s ‘Magic Bus’. A song which they performed together previously in 2009, at the Hop Farm festival.

Currently at the peak of the U.K. Album Charts for the fourth time in his solo career with eleventh studio album, Sonik Kicks, Weller’s last fruitful collaboration came in the form of ‘Are You Trying To Be Lonely?’, a single with producer Andy Lewis that reached number two in the U.K. Indie Chart.

Conversely, only one of Roger Daltrey’s solo albums managed to break the top ten – Daltrey, which reached number six in 1973. His last solo effort was 1992′s Rocks in the Head, which failed to chart.
