The Who frontman bored by Rock Band

Daltrey won't get fooled again.

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey has grumpily admitted that Rock Band "bored" him, and laments how technology has changed the way we interact with music.

Speaking in an interview with CNN, the ageing rocker said that he tried the EA-distributed music title, but got bored quickly with it. Presumably because you've already sung Won't Get Fooled again 419,393 times over the past 38 years, Rog.

But it's not just videogames Daltrey objects to; he went on to rail against technological advancements in general such as the toaster and the digital watch. Back in the good old days "all we had was music", he said. "There was nothing else. There was cinema, music and sex. Life was better."

Yes, we can imagine being in one of the world's biggest rock groups of the '60s and '70s, surrounded by groupies 24/7, was considerably more fun than being a 64-year old man who can't work out how to use his iPhone and has all the co-ordination of a cat on mandrax.

For those not in a stadium rock band, and not addled by years of rock n' roll excesses, feel free to check out what mere mortals thought of Rock Band.
