Keith Moon

Keith Moon’s maniacally powerful contributions to The Who cannot be overstated even now, nearly 40 years after his death.

It was around this time in 1978 that Moon the Loon sat behind the kit in front of an audience for what would turn out to be the final time with The Who, four months before he passed away.

While a far cry from his drum-bashing heyday,…

,…Moonie still embodies the fire of the Who in these clips from Shepperton.

This version of ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’ still ranks as one of my favorites from The Who with Moonie providing the aforementioned fire, Roger the machismo, Pete the brains and The Ox the consummate quiet anchor guiding the inspired lunacy.
