Really?  I mean, Moon's cutting it up, but other than that, what's so

Would that have been when I wrote, " They don't look like they're going to 
come to blows or anything..."?

Does that sound like Pete to you? He's mad at himself, so he decides to 
throw Roger a compliment? I'm not buying it.  Besides, he *knew* has was 
going to have trouble with the lyrics.  That's why he's got the stand in the 
first place.  It could be that he's annoyed at something to do with his 
equipment (he makes a comment about his guitar being out of tune), but he's 
definitely annoyed at someone.  If he was annoyed at himself, I think he'd 
be *more* likely to take a jab at Roger, like he does with the roadie that 
tuned his guitar.

No, Keith's joking around the whole show.
