The Who's Pete Townshend said there was "a lot of hatred" in the early days of the band.
He said: "There was a lot of hatred and uneasiness in the early Who that we tended to cover up with crazy behavior and just start losing ourselves in a kind of a running comedy act. Keith just made a joke out of everything. He kept everybody happy. But there was always a strong possibility of the band flying apart at any moment. I'm surprised that didn't happen."
"What's more amazing is that Roger Daltrey and I are on tour together at the moment. I think it's astonishing. Bands are peculiar things. It could be magic in a way, two musicians performing together; it doesn't necessarily mean they will be friendly."
