Empty Glass, released in 1980, is the first solo album of original material, and third album overall, by Pete Townshend. It deals with issues that Townshend was struggling with, including alcoholism, drug abuse, marital problems and deceased friends, particularly Keith Moon, The Who's drummer, who died in 1978. Empty Glass contained the devotional love song, "Let My Love Open the Door", which became a top ten hit in the US, and the modestly successful singles "Rough Boys" and "A Little Is Enough". The album was rated No. 57 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest of the 1980s. A Gibson poll rated it at No. 5 among "the greatest albums released by an artist who was previously in a successful band".
