"Keith Moon is hands down my greatest drum hero of all time. Most musicians talk about seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan as ‘that moment’, well for me it was when I was 11 years old and I saw The Kids Are Alright in the movie theater. Although I'd been a Who fan since Tommy came out in '69, I'd never SEEN Keith play.
“I was completely transfixed and couldn't take my eyes off of him! I knew at that moment that not only did I want to be a drummer, but I wanted to be a drummer like Keith.
“It has nothing to do with technique it had to with personality which I think is waaaay more important. Watching Keith made you smile and that's the type of drummer I wanted to be!"
