Daltrey has been an actor and film producer, with roles in films and television. Planet Rock listeners voted him rock's fifth-greatest voice in 2009, he was ranked number 61 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest singers of all time in 2010. Roger Harry Daltrey was born on 1 March 1944, in Hammersmith Hospital, East Acton, west London, one of three children of Harry and Irene Daltrey. Daltrey's father, who at the time was fighting in the Second World War, came home a few years later. Daltrey attended Victoria Primary School and Acton County Grammar School along with Townshend and Entwistle, he showed academic promise in the English state school system, ranking at the top of his class on the eleven-plus examination that led to his enrolment at the Acton County Grammar School. Daltrey made his first guitar from a block of wood in 1957, a cherry red Stratocaster replica, joined a skiffle band called the Detours, who were in need of a lead singer, they told him that he had to bring a guitar, within a few weeks he showed up with it.

When his father bought him an Epiphone guitar in 1959, he became the lead guitarist for the band. Townshend wrote in his autobiography, "until he was expelled Roger had been a good pupil."Early on, Daltrey was the band's leader, earning a reputation for using his fists to exercise control when needed, despite his small stature. According to Townshend, Daltrey "ran things the way he wanted. If you argued with him, you got a bunch of fives ". In 1964, the band discovered another band performing as the Detours and discussed changing their name. Townshend suggested "the Hair" and Townshend's roommate Richard Barnes suggested "the Who"; the next morning, Daltrey made the decision for the band, saying "It's the Who, innit?". With the band's first hit single and record deal in early 1965, Townshend began writing original material and Daltrey's dominance of the band began to decrease; the other members of the Who fired Daltrey from the band in late 1965 after he beat up their drummer Keith Moon for supplying illegal drugs to Townshend and Entwistle, causing him to re-examine his methods of dealing with people.

A week Daltrey was admitted back to the band, but was told he'd be on probation. He promised that there would be no more violent assaults. Daltrey recalled, "I thought. If I didn't stick with the Who, I would be a sheet metal worker for the rest of my life."The band's second single, "Anyway, Anywhere", was a collaboration between Daltrey and Townshend. As Townshend developed into one of rock's most accomplished composers, Daltrey gained an vaunted reputation as a powerful singer and riveting front-man; the Who's stage act was energetic, Daltrey's habit of swinging the microphone around by its cord on stage became his signature move. Daltrey's Townshend-inspired stuttering expression of youthful anger and arrogance in the band's breakthrough single, "My Generation", captured the revolutionary feeling of the 1960s for many young people around the world and became the band's trademark, his scream near the end of "Won't Get Fooled Again" became a defining moment in rock and roll. By 1973, Daltrey was acting roles.

While other members of the band worked on recording the music for Quadrophenia, Daltrey used some of this time to check the Who's books. He found they had fallen into disarray under the management of Chris Stamp. Lambert was Pete Townshend's artistic mentor, challenging him led to renewed tension within the band. During a filming session Townshend and Daltrey argued over the schedule. Townshend hit Daltrey over the head with his guitar, Daltrey responded by knocking Townshend unconscious with a single blow. With each of the Who's milestone achievements, Who's Next, Quadrophenia, Daltrey was the face and voice of the band as they defined themselves as the ultimate rebels in a generation of change; when Ken Russell's adaptation of Tommy appeared as a feature film in 1975, Daltrey played the lead role, was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for "Best Acting Debut in a Motion Picture" and appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine on 10 April 1975. He afterward worked with Russell again. Daltrey worked with Rick Wakeman on the soundtrack to this film.

The Who continued after the death of their drummer Keith Moon in 1978, but tension contin

Kippinge Church

Kippinge Church stands alone, midway between Vester Kippinge and Øster Kippinge in northwestern Falster, Denmark. It is west of Redslev wood. Thanks to three reputed miracles, the Early Gothic church attracted many pilgrims until the end of the 19th century, it is known for its frescos from the mid-14th century. By 1338, the villages of Vester- and Østerkippinge had grown up on either side of the parish church, which remained on an isolated site in the countryside. In the Middle Ages, the church was dedicated to the Virgin Mary. At the beginning of the 16th century, the Crown had calling rights for the appointment of clergy similar to the English advowson. In 1767, it was sold into private ownership but was soon reacquired by the State until 1868, when it was sold to the citizens of the parish, it gained full independence in 1938. The church is famous for the pilgrims it attracted over the centuries thanks to three reputed miracles; the first miracle was the bleeding Sacrament in 1492. The second was a miraculous altarpiece depicting the Virgin Mary.

The church subsisted as a result of the healing properties of its holy spring. The nave, culminating in a chancel with a three-sided end, was built of red brick on a sloping plinth in the Early Gothic style c. 1300. The north door, with its pointed arch, the priest's door are bricked in while the somewhat modified south door is still in use; the porch and tower were added in the Late Gothic period. The west chapel, adjoining the tower, no doubt connected with the pilgrimages, was built before the Reformation; the chancel had five small pointed windows which have been replaced with more recent round-arched windows. The Baroque spire was renovated in 1911, its base takes the form of a sturdy dome with an octagonal lantern. The spire proper is thin; the church provides excellent examples of work intricately carved by Jørgen Ringnis in the Auricular style. The altarpiece, with a central painting by Anthonius Clement, is flanked by the figures of Matthew and Mark, it presents female figures symbolizing Faith and Charity and is decorated with angels.

The pedestal has one at his christening, the other at the Last Supper. The figures of Luke and John stand on either side of the cornice; the elaborately carved octagonal font and canopy are by Ringnis, the base bearing the figures of the four Evangelists. The double-arched panels present the Annunciation, Christ's birth, the Adoration of the Magi and the Circumcision; the canopy, shaped as an octagonal lantern with arched panels as in the base, bears male and female herms. In the centre, there is a baptismal scene with naked figures; the coloured and gilded finish has been restored. The lattice choir screen consists of nine panels decorated with flowers and symbols of the virtues; the pedestal bears the naked figures of Adam and Eve while the upper cartouche presents Christ bearing the globe. The screen was decorated by Hans Lauridsen in 1680, who added the six small paintings of a woman in various positions. Ringnis' pulpit is similar to that in Nakskov Church with figures of the Evangelists and of John the Baptist and Moses.

The coloured decorations and paintings are the work of Anthonius Clement. The church has one from the 14th century, the other from the 15th century; the old font in the west chapel is of Gotland limestone. Its base is decorated with four heads; the frescos in the chancel vault are from c. 1300. They were rediscovered under the limewash in 1904 and restored in 1909; the well executed paintings present images principally from Genesis, Chapters 3 and 4, by artists from the Kippinge workshop. In the east panel, Christ flanked by John the Baptist and two angels can be seen. To the west are frescos of Adam and Eve and the sacrifice of Cain and Abel; the north panel shows the St Michael combating the dragon. The eastern side of the north vault presents the Annunciation adjacent to the Fall
