Further to this thread. Yes Kenney was a groove drummer in the late 70's Who, but actually he played way more wide open and "moon-like" in all the Small Faces. Listen to Tin Soldier, or Afterglow. I think the late-70's sound influenced the music the Who was making at that time, to be more rock steady. Even by Who Are you, Moons' drumming was tamed down by that period.
