I hope this story gets as much press as the ones that came out when he was arrested!

Townshend Cleared of Possessing Kid Porn
LONDON – Pete Townshend was cleared Wednesday of possessing pornographic images of children. But The Who guitarist was warned by police not to access a Web site containing images of child abuse.
Townshend was arrested in January on suspicion of making and possessing indecent images of children. The arrest was part of Operation Ore, an FBI-led crackdown on Internet child pornography.
After a four-month investigation, London’s Metropolitan Police said Wednesday that the rocker “was not in possession of any downloaded child abuse images,” but had accessed a site containing such images in 1999.
The musician acknowledged using his credit card to enter a Web site advertising child pornography but said he was doing research for his autobiography.
The title character in Townshend’s rock opera “Tommy” — a deaf, dumb and blind pinball wizard — is sexually abused by an uncle, and Townshend said he believed he had been sexually abused as a young boy, while in the care of his mentally ill grandmother.
Police said it was not a defense “to access these images for research or out of curiosity.”
As part of the cautioning procedure, Townshend’s fingerprints, photograph and a DNA sample will be taken by police, and he will be placed on a national register of sex offenders for five years.
Townshend was one of The Who’s four founding members, along with bassist John Entwistle, singer Roger Daltrey and drummer Keith Moon. Moon died in 1978 and Entwistle died last year.
The group, founded in London in the early 1960s, was part of the first British rock invasion, alongside the Rolling Stones and The Beatles. Their hits included “I Can See for Miles,” “Pinball Wizard” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”
