Changing the face of rock drumming, Keith Moon exploded (quite literally) into the drumming world, finally bringing drumming to the forefront of the band. Like his style or not, his crazy antics paved the way for modern rock drumming.
As if the brightly coloured Rolls Royce prowling the back streets of old town Poole wasn't unlikely enough in the mid-1960s, seeing Keith Moon step out on Green Road and bellow to his mate Chris Ferguson must have blown the minds of the locals.
"Yeh, Moonie was some character," says Chris today, with due understatement.
When I was a pimply, quivery-voiced teenager trying to act cool whilst my balls dropped, like every teen, I knew everything. At least I thought I did. No-one could tell me anything, because I just wouldn’t listen. In my little bubble world, I also thought I knew everything about music.
