Would you like it if your boss suddenly took credit for a project you did thinking you would get credit/respect/appreciation for it? How do you think Keith would feel if Woody wiped out and overdubbed some of his parts to make a song sound better? Would you support Woody for doing that? No, I don't think so. You assume the reason Keith overdubbed Brian's parts is because they were not up to par. You could be completely wrong; I would have liked to hear the original version Brian helped to create, that's all. Keith isn't God; he should treat his fellow musicians the way he would want to be treated; like an equal member of the team. You second guess Brian but give Keith the benefit of the doubt because he's the "Keef". Keith has own set of faults; he's human. Keith was fucked up on drugs for longer than Brian ever was; Keith in the 70s relied on Mick to do his guitar parts and would make the others wait HOURS just for him to wake up & get to the studio. Yes, the song turned out well, but for all we know, it may have been similar or even better with Brian. Now, we will never know. That was just the straw that broke the camel's back, in my opinion, when you look at how they treated him.
