Roger Daltrey continues to do what he can to make sure the kids are all right.

On March 28, Daltrey performed Who and solo material as the headliner for a Teenage Cancer Trust benefit show at London’s Royal Albert Hall. And he wasn’t alone: The concert’s impressive list of guest musicians included Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood, as well as Steve Winwood and Paul Weller.

Daltrey is a longtime Teenage Cancer Trust supporter, and his commitment to fighting the disease doesn’t stop there. Along with Who bandmate Pete Townshend, Daltrey is the co-namesake of a recently launched UCLA teen/young adult cancer program.

“I think the pop business owes teenagers because they have earned their living from teenagers for years,” Daltrey said after the March 28 show. “Teenagers are very different from children and very different from adults, so let’s not ignore them.”

Daltrey was joined by a ukulele-playing Wood for a rendition of ‘Blue, Red and Grey,’ a deep track from the Who’s 1975 studio album, ‘The Who By Numbers.’ Daltrey’s set also included an acoustic version of ‘The Kids Are Alright.’

A companion Teenage Cancer Trust concert is scheduled for tonight (March 29) at Royal Albert Hall, with Paul McCartney as the headliner.
