Interestingly I've never been a big Who fan. I used to have Who's Next and really liked that album a lot. I ended up trading it with a friend for another album I wanted. But it's always been one of my favorites, probably because it was one of the first few albums I ever bought for myself. And as a drummer, Moon was never all that high on my list. But I have to say I would have enjoyed seeing them in concert when they had Simon Phillips playing drums with them. It's a shame that they never used him to record any music and instead used Kenny Jones, who I never liked at all. And Zack Starkey, Ringo's kid, is a really good drummer, far better than his dad from a technical standpoint. He would have been good for their recorded stuff. Anyway, I'm rambling.
I know this isn't the same, but watching that reminded me of this .....
you would have to watch his early live performances to really appreciate Keith.he was larger than life and it cost him his.his drumming on the who albums was a forward instrument.not a back beat like most from his time..there is a reason the who filled stadiums.they are were professed as the loudest band,constantly breaking the 120 decibel range.they broke many records in there day.they broke many attendance records as well.
they were also politically connected to the young generation in the 60s and 70s with their anti rich folk attitude.the played a large part in the british invasion and the fall of the gentry...i was also part of that and haven't really changed my opinions since..Keith was trained by Carlo Little..
