Keith, on rare occasions, contributed vocals and lyrical ideas to The Who as well. So he was aware of what was going on.
Ive seen it and he says it is around what Roger is doing, not what Roger is saying. big difference. A lot of lyrics are pointless drivel, does that mean the drum part should be the same? The mood of a song as a whole dictates the playing, not what the word are.
