I think Pete's playing style with the Who was as a "rhythm-lead" guitarist, as opposed to a virtuoso style of playing that characterized Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen and others. He seemed to be setting up Entwistle and Moon to take lead roles musically (like the bass solos in My Generation, for instance).
He is definitely a rhythm guitarist that plays a bit of lead when absolutely necessary. Though I'm not a huge Who fan I think he's the greatest rhythm player I've ever heard.
I agree Deb.The Who were fantastic.A tremedous version of A Quick One.Keith was on fire.
Keith Moon was one of kind! I really like The Who's performance at the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus. Mick Jagger felt that The Who blew the Stones off the stage and didn't want to release RRC after its 1968 filming....... and it didn't see the light of day until the mid 1990s.The Who doing "A Quick One" at the RRC:fOG12sE-krw
