1985
Pete releases his first post-Who solo album. White City - A Novel is the soundtrack to a short film that is released simultaneously with the LP as a videotape. In the film, Pete plays a version of himself, visiting an old working-class friend who lives in the titular housing project and is recently divorced from a swimming instructor. The film is followed by an explanatory interview by Pete and an in-studio performance of the otherwise-unreleased song "Night School. " Positive reviews for the album come from Variety, Michael Tearson in Audio, Bill Milkowski in Down Beat and Rob Tannenbaum in Rolling Stone, both of the latter calling it Pete's best work since Empty Glass. Negative reviews, however, tend to be very negative with slams by Billy Altman in Spin ( "pretentiously boring "), Will Smith in Melody Maker ( "a pitiful specimen ") and Craig Zeller in Creem who says Pete should give it up as far as rock 'n' roll is concerned. The film is reviewed by Stephen Holden in The New York Times who, although he enjoys the musical performances, finds the rest odd and moody with overblown symbolism. Deidre Rockmaker in Goldmine also gives the film a bad review, but positive reviews come from Ned Geesin in People ( "tremendously touching "), Tony Seideman in Rolling Stone ( "art with a capital A ") and Louis Meredith in Stereo Review who compares it favorably with the work of John Cassavetes. The album peaks at #70 in the U.K. but reaches #26 in the U.S. It is the last record to date by The Who or one of its members to reach the American Top Forty.

1999
Pete appears on The Jan Payne Show on BBC Radio 5 for a live interview promoting his upcoming radio play version of Lifehouse. On the same day, The Radio Times prints an interview with Pete in which he says he's not gay, he has a girlfriend, and he and his wife Karen are now separated.
