Tonight, rocker Pete Townshend and his celebrated band The Who are set to entertain a crowd of screaming fans at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.

Yesterday, however, the songwriter took the spotlight in a much quieter venue, joining NPR contributing host Jacki Lyden on Talk of the Nation at our DC headquarters. In a live interview about his childhood, songwriting and new memoir, Who I Am, Townshend also responded to fans who dialed in to share their "Who moment."

On the way out, we got our own special "Who moment" as Townshend posed to show he's a fan of NPR.
