Great call on American Dreaming.  Also, isn't Brendan Perry's entire solo album "Eye of the Hunter" drummer-less?  Saturday's Child is a great one there...
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

No drum kit in this song. Keith Moon (RIP) wasn't able to play 6/8 timing, and just a bit of percussions was used from Pete Townshend's demo.
 
 
I don't think that this song could be better with the drums.

You are absolutely right. Oh let's just add that entire album as well! It's very good! I was surprised. SLOTH is my favourite.
Belhold the power and gift of BEARD! As Damian Wilson sports a beard now his voice somehow got even better than it already was. :)

maybe could have used brushes instead of sticks? The snare would have been too much for sure

Pete Townshend said in an interview that Keith Moon doesn't know to play 6/8; Moon never knew to play 6/8 timing, Townshend said. Then the drums were removed from the song, and Jon Astley, the younger brother of Townshend's ex-wife and the producer of Who Are You the album, was recorded these "steps" and "claps", & some percussion from Townshend's demos were added.
 


Post Moon The Who era, a live version with drums on it..



An amazing performance actually, but I prefer the album version.
