PETE Townshend is working on a book about how little children react when you tell them to fuck off.

Townshend said his fouled mouthed-outburst at a seven year-old girl and her subsequent reaction had ‘exposed the dark netherworld of innocence and profanity’.

The Who guitarist, who swears at children as part of a campaign to prevent swearing at children, added: “I want to explore the way in which their faces change when an angry old man says ‘fuck off’ or ‘go fuck yourself’ or perhaps ‘what the fuck do you know, you seven year-old piece of shit?’.

“And then I want to turn it into a rock opera that will seem to last for days.”
