Legendary guitarist Pete Townshend is to give a lecture at this year's Radio Festival in Salford, UK, on October 31st.

The man famous for tearing up the stage with The Who will deliver the inaugral John Peel lecture, which will focus on helping musicians to learn how they can make their own path in the music industry.

You can listen to the lecture on BBC 6 Music.

The lecture is named after the late BBC Radio DJ, who won respect as a purveyor of new and often unsigned music, Peel died of a heart attack in 2004, aged 65.

Townshend spoke of his honour at hosting the event (via Contact Music):

"John didn't just listen to music, he played it on air and let his audience decide. He was a listener first, and an activist second, and I am happy to have a chance to honour him and examine how his legacy might extend into the future."

The lecture will take place at Lowry Theatre in Salford.
