    Well it's news to me that the Daltreys have an open marriage.

    I read a really good biography of Adam a few years ago and IIRC Jackie wouldn't divorce him. She seemed resigned to his philandering. Quite a complicated bloke and difficult to get along with, by all accounts. Everyone involved with the Stardust movie remembers him as a miserable sod who felt that he was above everyone else.

    Well, in terms of years and in an "in name only" basis, that marriage was long, but . . . yeah, Mr. Faith was some character, wasn't he?

    Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley have been married since the 80s--and they work together, of course.

    It amazes me that he was able to put up with his bandmate's antics in the late 60s and 70s. It must have been the ultimate test of patience to put up with Brian, Keith, Mick, the other Miick, and to a lesser extent Bill, and later on, Ron.

    That’s what I thought of first. Three of my favourite bands are based on this:
    Ira and Georgia from Yo La Tengo
    Mimi and Alan from Low (first album in the early 90s, together since high school)
    Liz and Dan from Ida (first album in the early 90s, together since going to Brown I believe)

    Jeff Tweedy from Wilco has been with his wife Susie since the late 80s or so. They met when she owned Lounge Ax in Chicago. Uncle Tupelo played there frequently and would sleep on the floor of her place when they passed through town. She’s several years older than him and they have grown kids now.

    Love Richie’s voice. Wish the corona virus would end so guys like him could get out in the road instead of turning into tv news junkies. He is a super duper crazy trump supporter.

    True but I would bet often easier to communicate and get on with than the rest as like Charlie they would keep their egos in check in band situations.
    Still you have a good point, he was the dirty old man of the Stones!

    I read that she was the one who encouraged him to answer the ad when Led Zeppelin were looking for a bassist.

    Daltrey said in his autobiography that on the road infidelity should not bother waves. He worded it slightly differently mind you.

    Dizzy Gillespie 1940 - 1993.
    In a televised interview he was asked why he didn't have troubles like Charlie Parker. His answer was "My wife wouldn't let me."
