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
"People talkin' about it. People talkin' about it."
