Love live Who clips! Keith covers a fair range there too.

Funny thing, the talk of Moonie's looseness. If he wanted to play tightly he'd probably be reduced to simplifying a great deal, in which case I imagine he wouldn't bother and find something else to do.

Tony, I agree re: "force of nature". He wasn't wedded to drums the way many of us are. He never practised in his free time - there's the famous anecdote about him not touching a kit in years and having to re-learn for the Who Are You sessions.

I love that mad wash Keith puts behind Pete's structures. A key thing is that his volume is way lower in the mix than is usual today, especially the kicks and snare. It's a different way of playing.
