I don't mind the "muh-muh-muh-muh-my-my" stutter, but it *is* a bit 
overused by Daltrey.  I believe he started it in the early '70s & used
it off & on thereafter.  Going from memory, I think he employs it on
the '73 KBFH boot.

I like his stutter technique on the IOW CD & the Young Vic CD.  Those
ones are freaky.

Then, of course, there's his use of "bloody" & "fuckin'" - as in "I'm 
not tryin' to cause a bloody/fuckin' big sensation!"  Those are always 
fun!  ;-)
