Roger Daltrey has said he would rather perform on stage with his The Who bandmate Pete Townshend than anybody else.

The rocker is set to perform with Paul Weller and Kelly Jones at his Teenage Cancer Trust shows this year, and promises there will be "more surprises" at the concerts.

But he admitted he is keen to work with Pete again.

Roger said: "Ultimately, if I could sing with anyone, I'd rather sing with Pete. I'd be on stage with Pete over anybody."

He added: "We're talking about doing things, we have ideas, so that's good.

"Pete's needs are very different from mine. I need to work, I need to sing to keep my voice going, otherwise it'll stop doing what I want and disappear."

The 68-year-old singer joked that if he and Pete did reform again, they would have to be called Who's Left, as the rest of the original line-up for the band are no longer with us.

:: The Teenage Cancer Trust series of concerts begin at the Royal Albert Hall on March 28. For more information on the charity, go to www.teenagecancertrust.org.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Working with your best friend, romantic or business partner will be productive. You're good at handling the small details, while your other half stays focused on the big picture. A publicity campaign will attract lots of loyal customers. Don't be afraid to put money into advertising. Once the word gets out, you'll see a dramatic increase in profits. You'll also meet lots of interesting people; some may even become lifelong friends. You love rubbing elbows with rebels who won't play by the rules.More
