But he is wise enough or sensitive enough to, as he says himself, "Keep it Simple " cause that's what is required for the overal effect of the band The shuffle section at the end of Black Magic Woman would be a good example of this effective simplicity ! You've opened a can of worms here - without Moon are the Who as good as they were and therefore is Pete Townsend as effective as he was with without Moon backing him (more like Moon leading him ) ? What would Pete Townsend sound like backed by Mick and John- I can't see that working ?

Great Points. Keith as people have pointed out would have sounded crap if he wasn't in the Who (And I'm a big fan but he was destined for The Who). For the Who Are You album album Keith couldn't play on one track "Music Must Change" because it was in 5/4 time instead of the normal 4/4.

I would never have wanted FM and The Who's history change but it would be great to imagine if after Peter left FM he formed a mini supergroup with Enwistle and Moon for one album or a couple of live dates as a small touring band.

However, there are very few I find interesting.
A couple of exceptions must be Snowy White and Rory Gallagher on that "Peter Green Songbook" (aka "Rattlesnake Guitar") 2CD.
And of course The Beatles' "Sun King" is sweet, but that's not a cover...

I've also stumbled across some amateur recordings on Youtube which were good. But most stuff there is nothing to write home about.
Well.... I really liked the Mick Fleetwood Bluesband with Rick Vito. Rick did a fantastic job on Peters songs. I especially liked the way he solved the problem of three guitars on Albatross. And his version of Love That Burns really got to me.
He overruled everything that Gary Moore, Bernie Marsden or Jim King have done.
