the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Founding Member of The Who, ROGER DALTREY, will sign his new book at Bookends : Roger Daltrey: My Story ,Thursday, October 25 at 7 PM.

If any one member of The Who can be said to be the group’s founding member it is singer Roger Daltrey. Born in the West London suburb of Shepherd’s Bush on March 1, 1944, Roger first assembled the group that would become The Who in 1961 while at Acton County Grammar School, recruiting John Entwistle and subsequently agreeing to John’s proposal that Pete Townshend should join. In those days Roger, whose daytime job was working in a sheet metal factory, even made the band’s guitars, and it was his energy and ambition that drove the group during their formative years. That same energy, coupled with his unwavering resolve, has sustained the group during periods of uncertainty ever since.

Reader says New parking system is not too hard to figure out . . . it’s too damn inconvenient to warrant my using it

New parking system is not too hard to figure out . . . it’s too damn inconvenient to warrant my using it. I’ve kept dimes and quarters in my car for the past 30 years so, no, I am not toting around rolls of quarters in my pockets . Grab a quarter, drop it into the meter and go. Easy. I don’t have to memorize my five license plates or kept that information stored on my phone. My trips to the CBD are short in nature . . . run into Rite-Aid, go the the ATM, post office, etc. I’d spend more time going to the meter and inputting my information than it takes my to run an average errand. And there is no way in hell I’m parking in a garage at the far end of the CBD to run a 5 minute errand. This system might work for diners and strollers but it’s not going to work for the bulk of Ridgewoodians who are conducting their every day lives. We will simply be taking our business elsewhere.
