Roger Daltrey Announced As Patron Of Brighton Institute Of Modern Music

The Brighton Institute of Modern Music has announced that legendary Who vocalist Roger Daltrey will be their "first ever patron."

The Institute provides a unique opportunity for aspiring musicians, said Daltrey, something he's happy to help promote:

"BIMM is a fantastic platform for talented young musicians who are given the opportunity to thrive and grow within the music industry. I am very happy to support new music in the U.K. and BIMM is helping to develop and nurture future talent organically and successfully."

Further honoring Daltrey, BIMM will hold a party and screening of the film version of the Who's 1973 rock opera, Quadrophenia.

The band will begin the live touring version of the opera on June 8 in Dublin, Ireland.
