The Scottish singer Fish, best known as the frontman of Marillion in the 1980s, was described by the music journalist David Hepworth as having a voice which was a "conflation" of Daltrey and Peter Gabriel. Fish is a self-confessed fan of The Who, citing "Quadrophenia" as one of his favourite albums, and also recorded a cover of the band's song "The Seeker". See more »
