Why is he great?
Powerhouse of The Who and everyone’s favourite Mod, Keith Moon was also a fine player with a well developed, personal sound and style. Tony Williams greatly admired Moon’s sense of freedom and dynamic attack, heard at its most joyful on Who hit ‘My Generation’ and throughout their classic rock opera Tommy.
“Personality, originality and genius fills. Keith Moon had it all, which is what makes him my favourite drummer of all time.” (Martyn Guy, Selby)
“Keith Moon’s playing was the purest expression of drumming I’ve ever heard.” (Alan Robertson, Glasgow)
“He was the original rock drummer, who opened the floodgates for the tidal wave of famous awe-inspiring drummers out there today. Thank you Keith.” (Gareth Aston, Northwich)
