Default Re: Kenney Jones

All The Who albums would have remained in the same WHO trail if the remaining members Townshend, Daltrey and Enwhistle held an audition to find out who could play lyrically just like what Moon did, instead of calling their friend Kenny....may be they wanted to change their course.. I know Daltrey didnt !!.

I still think the song Eminence Front would have been much different if Moonie played, instead of that dead groovy beat., .......well almost all the songs in Face Dances and Its Hard.

Yes, Kenny is a great drummer just like all the other great drummers, who "played for the song!!, ...steady groovy beats with occasional fills.... but quite unfit for The Who, which needed unsteady unpredictable fills through out and occasional groovy beats!.

(Zac goes technical as well ) The who needed a drummer who could look at Petes guitar all the time and play lyrically with no hi hats,no pre written drum music...... and most importantly no stone face either!!. :).
