THE WHO's Roger Daltrey made a quiet stop at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia over the weekend in support of Teen Cancer America , a charity that partners with pediatric hospitals to better treat teens with cancer. Bala Cynwyd's Howard Jaffe , a massive Who fan and founding board member of Teen Cancer America (teencanceramerica.org), said he hopes that the charity will be able to dedicate some space solely devoted to teenage patients in CHOP's new building. Daltrey, who changed his schedule so he could check out CHOP, was impressed, saying he had never seen a hospital like it. Daltrey toured the hospital and talked with teens.

HOWARD JAFFE was an impressionable 16-year-old when he first saw the Who at JFK Stadium, in 1982. Roger Daltrey's commanding stage presence and Pete Townshend's ferocious guitar got him hooked. The Who have long since given up the steady touring that touched Jaffe and thousands of other teenagers, but Daltrey and Townshend now touch the lives of new generations of teens who have been victimized by cancer. Teen Cancer America is the fledgling, stateside counterpart of the Teenage Cancer Trust, a group that has established more than 25 teenage inpatient units in the United Kingdom since it formed in 1990.

Joan Jett is returning home, in a sense, next week, sharing a bill with Roger Daltrey for his Teen Cancer benefit at the Kimmel Center. At a band rehearsal, the one-time bassist for the Runaways and the woman behind such hedonistic anthems as "Bad Reputation" and "I Love Rock 'n' Roll," sets the record straight. Jett is a Philadelphia musical Walk of Fame rocker, with a gold star along Broad Street from the Philadelphia Music Alliance. She was a true local for only the first six months of life.

If Betty Townshend hadn't broken her hip, The Who would not have recorded Endless Wire, its first album of new material in 24 years. And Betty's son, Pete, and his sole surviving original bandmate, Roger Daltrey, wouldn't be leading The Who - or "The Two," as fans have cheekily dubbed them - into the Wachovia Center tonight for the first date of their North American tour. Of course, just by giving birth to the now 61-year-old Pete, Betty Townshend can be credited as the source of one of the most brilliant resumes in popular music.

For the entire first set, Roger kept his back to the stage, pogoing to every tune the Who lashed out. Singing every song. Executing all the body english he could while astride a flimsy field-level folding chair. Facing the audience as if he himself were on stage, while the defibrillating decibels pounded over him. The slender red-haired man in the maroon shorts and souvenir tank top from Tijuana never once looked at the band. He never saw the wide-screen close-ups of sweaty, rawboned Roger Daltrey, windmilling, pony-tailed Pete Townshend, or snowy-haired John Entwistle.

How do you think he does it? Roger Daltrey looked as if he were setting himself up for a fall. Sunday's show at the Mann Music Center was billed as a tribute to his former bandmate. And at first glance, Daltrey Sings Townshend: A Celebration of the Music of The Who, appeared to be an act of hubris: An aging rock god cashing in on his past and trading on Pete Townshend's recent Broadway success with Tommy. So did Daltrey acquit himself? You better, you bet. For 2 1/2 hours, the 50-year-old singer effortlessly staked his claim on a parade of muscular Who favorites.

IN CANNES this year to serve as a film fest juror, Sharon Stone bemoaned the fact that she couldn't get any good film roles. Well, the squeaky wheel has once again gotten the grease. After a two-year absence from the big screen, Stone is set to star in two indie features. "A Different Loyalty" is the story of British spy/traitor Kim Philby, who sold secrets to the Russkies for three decades. Rupert Everett will play Philby. Stone will play his third wife. The film starts shooting in Prague this fall.

The Who have released dribs and drabs of new material since the galvanic British rockers went out with a whimper in the early '80s, most recently two new songs on the compilation Then and Now: 1964-2004. Wire & Glass (Polydor . ), which is now available as an import EP, is a taste of something more substantial. It's a six-song excerpt from a 10-song "mini-opera" that will be included on Endless Wire, due Oct. 31, the first new studio album by The Who since 1982's justly forgotten It's Hard.

When the Who is on - it's really on. Maybe it hasn't always been as consistently ferocious or tuneful a live act as it once was. Then again, are you good at every aspect of what you've been doing since 1964? The pairing of roaring Cockney singer Roger Daltrey and ruminative songwriter/guitarist Pete Townshend defines classic rock's rawest passions. When they're in fine fettle. But with Townshend occupied with writing another musical (? la Tommy) Daltrey, 65, isn't ready for semiretirement.

ANGELINA JOLIE spoke to the British Parliament yesterday about ISIS, London's Daily Mail reported. Jolie said ISIS is using rape as the "centerpoint of their terror" and told of meeting girls as young as 7 who had been brutally assaulted in war zones. Jolie, speaking before a Lords committee, said the jihadis use rape as a "policy" and as a "very effective weapon. " Jolie and former British Foreign Secretary William Hague last year hosted an "End Sexual Violence in Conflict" summit in London which brought together policy-makers from more than 100 countries to press for the rights of all victims of sexual violence, because Jolie said it's really a problem everywhere.

IN A Q&A on the website Reddit, the Who 's Roger Daltrey complained that he was having trouble getting American artists to pitch in when it came to his upcoming Philly benefit concert with Joan Jett for Teen Cancer America. All proceeds from the concert, at the Kimmel Center on July 28, go to building a center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for teens with cancer. "One of the things we're struggling with is getting more Americans involved, more American entertainers like myself, the backbone of the music industry was this age group, and I feel like if you've been successful and you've made it, just by donating a bit of your time, a bit of your energy, even if it's just talking about what we are trying to achieve now," Daltrey wrote.

Pete Townshend was 28 in 1973 when The Who released Quadrophenia , the rock opera about a 1960s teenage Mod named Jimmy, whose fractured self reflected the personalities of all four members of the explosive British band. The windmilling Who guitarist, the most self-consciously analytic of the great baby-boom-era songwriters, had hardly reached the old age that eight years earlier, in "My Generation," he would have hoped he'd die before attaining. But when Townshend wrote Quadrophenia - which he performed Saturday in its entirety along with front man Roger Daltrey and eight other musicians at a sold-out Wells Fargo Center - he was nearly a decade removed from the torturous teenage subject matter he chronicled in the most highly ambitious song cycle of his career.
