I'm still the best Keith Moon-style drummer in the world

Keith Moon was the drummer with legendary rock band, The Who. Widely regarded as one of the best drummers who ever lived, his death after a drug overdose at the age of 32, came as a shattering blow to the group.

The son of a mechanic and a cleaner, London-born Moon did badly at school, coming into his own only when he joined Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and John Entwistle to form The Who in his late teens.

A major talent as a drummer, Moon soon became known for his wild behaviour both on stage and off. He reportedly once deliberately drove a car into a swimming pool. On stage, he would attempt to sing whenever he got the chance, usually very enthusiastically but always very badly.

Ironically, his death came just as he had appeared to be getting over his long-standing substance abuse problems. However, he undoubtedly had a huge impact on both the world of drumming and indeed the world of music, which endures to this day.
