In 2008, he received Kennedy Center Honors. He was ranked No. 10 in Gibson.com’s 2011 list of the top 50 guitarists, and No. 10 in Rolling Stone’s updated 2011 list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
On 21 May 2016, he and Roger Daltrey received The George and Ira Gershwin Award for Lifetime Musical Achievement at UCLA.
Many rock guitarists have cited Townshend as an influence, among them Slash, Alex Lifeson, and Steve Jones.
Although he grew up in a household with jazz musicians, Townshend absorbed many of his ideas about performance and rock music themes during art school. Townshend’s roommate at Ealing Art College, Tom Wright, had a large record collection, and Townshend listened to and became influenced by R&B and rock & roll artists like Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Booker T. & the MGs, Little Walter, and Chuck Berry.
He was also strongly influenced by cellist, Malcolm Cecil, who often damaged his cello during performances, along with Gustav Metzger, pioneer of auto-destructive art. In light of these influences, guitar smashing became not just an expression of youthful angst, but also a means of conveying ideas through musical performance. “We advanced a new concept”, he writes. “Destruction is art when set to music.” Townshend also cited Robbie Basho as a significant influence, saying “I’ve totally been influenced by him. You can hear it in my work.”

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire PETE TOWNSHEND for an event?)
(i.e., what is PETE TOWNSHEND booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for PETE TOWNSHEND, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
