Pete Townshend has gone public with the news of his marriage to partner, Rachel Fuller.
He took to Facebook to share the news and add that he plans to take an extended period of time away.
"This seems like a good time to tell everyone who doesn't know yet," He wrote.
He then followed with: "We married nearly a year ago and did keep it as quiet as we could, telling only close family."
"Why did we keep it quiet? Really, we were being selfish," wrote Townshend. "I have been away on tour so much in recent years, we just wanted to be together, and savour the moment."
In a seperate post Townshend shared plans to take a yearlong sabbatical.
