The Who mimes so many performances that we Who fans have seen over the years- Relay-Join together...when the band went into the audience and played!! And don't forget My Generation from the Smothers Brothers show, as well as ICSFMiles from that same show...just watch Moon...he's definitely not who cares...we didn't care then..why care now?

What's not to know?  The chorus is "I'm working on a dream".  On the audio @ 
1:02 he only sings the word "dream", but he's clearly mouthing the whole 
phrase on the video.  And people have been saying his vocal was the only 
live part of that performance!  I think I can safely say we have no idea 
what is live and what is recorded on any of these performances.
