Best guitarist the world has ever seen. Guitarist/Singer of Legendary rock band, The Who. Famed for writing the worlds two greatest rock operas, Tommy and Quadrophenia.

Limp Bizcut- I wish i could write like Pete Townshend can. Then i would have hits.

Get a Pete Townshend mug for your coworker José.
Godfather of rock, lead gitarist, vocalist and main composer for The Who.

Falsely accused of downloading child porn in 2003, and found innocent later. Ridiculous accusation, since he was abused as a child himself and used his music to come to grips with it.
Main composer of My Generation, Tommy, Who's Next, Quadrophenia and much more.

To break something, very often a guitar. Taken from the guitar-smashing habit of Pete Townshend, lead guitarist for one of the greatest rock bands of all time, The Who.
Don't you dare go Pete Townshend on my guitar; I'll go Pete Townshend on your ass if you do!

Get a Pete Townshend Moment mug for your dog Helena.
Viewing any kind of sexually stimulating material (not necessarily illegal or even explicit) on the internet. In common use in northern England, and possibly elsewhere, this expression originates from pop musician Pete Townshend's explanation of why he gave his credit card details to a website containing visual depictions of children being sexually abused - that he wished to view the material for research purposes. Although the implication of the term is that Townshend was lying he was, in fact, cleared of all charges.
Sorry I didn't answer the phone, I was doing some Pete Townshend-style research.
