Keith Moon… September 7, 1978

No big secret to people who read my blog. If I could…I would post only on Keith Moon if I could. His drumming still amazes me every time I listen to it. No other drummer is the same.

Thanks to run-sew-read for reminding me of this date on Friday…On this date in 1978 the best drummer ever in Rock and Roll (in my opinion) passed away. His drumming gets overlooked because of his giant personality and the Moon the Loon image that still follows his name.

Not only is he my favorite drummer…he is without a doubt my favorite Rock Star. There have been interesting characters in Rock and Roll but none match Moon. He was born with a trait that few of us have…the dangerous ability to not feel embarrassment…That one trait keeps the rest of us in check… not Keith.

The world is a dull place without Keith around…safer? Oh yea… but where is the fun in that?
