Shots fired! The Who’s Pete Townshend took a shot at Kanye West for calling himself the ‘greatest living rock star’ at the Glastonbury Music Festival. Wait until you see what the legendary rocker said!
Kanye West, 38, just got dragged through the mud by two members of the iconic rock band, The Who. After declaring himself the “greatest living rock star” to the tens of thousands of music lovers at the 2015 Glastonbury Music Festival, Pete Townshend, 70, took the stage with The Who and used the opportunity to throw major shade at Ye.
Most artists know better than to go on stage at a music festival and declare themselves better than the rest. Of course, it’s no surprise that Kanye wouldn’t be classified under “most artists.” The rapper was thrilled to announce how important he was to the music industry at the Glastonbury Music Festival on Saturday night, June 28.
“I’m going to say this tonight because 20 years from now, 30 years from now, 40 years from now, I might not be able to say it, but I can say it tonight….You are now watching the greatest living rock star on the planet,” Kanye proudly told the crowd. Unfortunately, not everyone agreed with him.
When The Who took the stage for their headlining performance, it was guitarist Pete Townshend that used the opportunity to mock Kanye for his self-entitlement. “We’re going to send you home now with a rebellious, ‘Oh yeah, who’s the biggest rock and roll star in the world?” he asked, and the crowd cheered in delight. Then, to further prove his point, Pete delivered an incredible guitar solo. Well played, The Who!
