So Sad About Us


Keith Moon couldn't really play the drums. Ask him to play a straight four by four and he'd have been totally flummoxed. When the Who took a year off so that Pete Townshend could indulge in some serious Corvoisier quaffing, Moon forgot anything that he did know about drumming.

When the Who reconvened, Moon would need at least a weeks practice before they could perform. He was a one off. If he hadn't turned up in an orange suit and informed Daltrey and Townshend that their drummer was shite I doubt that we'd ever have heard of him.

He wasn't right in the head really. He was a hyperactive little boy who never grew up. He had no independent existence outside of the Who. That band were his life. When they laid off for a bit he was totally lost; a rock clown drowning in pills and alcohol.

He aged extraordinarily quickly. In the space of ten years he turned from a fresh faced youth into a middle aged bloater.

What no one can deny is that he played the drums like nobody before or since. It's like Alex Higgins wasn't much cop at snooker, and George Best wasn't up to much at football. THAT'S NOT HOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO IT.

amen..you can really hear this in "i'm a boy" when he just goes balls to the wall and lets loose.

He's pretty amazing in 'Substitute' as well. The Who should have quit after he died. You can't replace someone like that.

I heard that on the radio this morning and I was thinking about it. My older brother was a rabid Who fan. Before I could walk I was rocking out.

I saw the Who at the SECC a few years back. Still pretty impressive for old geezers. Townshend wasn't doing much windmilling. He's probably got arthritus of the shoulder!
