Keith Moon

Keith Moon, the celebrated original drummer for The Who, was born on August 23, 1946, in Harlesden, London, England. Moon was widely acclaimed as the greatest drummer in the history of rock. Brashly confident, he played quite differently to his peers, turning his massive kit into a lead instrument, and his up-front technique was crucial in establishing the Who’s passionate style. His playing ushered in an era wherein the drums became far more than simply a means of keeping the beat, and much of his recorded legacy from 1965–73 has a timeless quality that has never been repeated, let alone bettered. In this respect Keith Moon was to the drums what Jimi Hendrix was to the guitar — a complete original — and as such he was probably the most influential drummer the rock world has ever seen.
