Re: How did Keith Moon play?
Moonie was a classic crazy garage drummer. His approach was typical 70s noob - seemingly oblivious to the link between drummer and bassist and playing along with the lead lines of the song (which is what laypersons listen to) and keen to show off at every opportunity.
There have been many like him (until taught that it's not the proper role to play drums in a group), just that Keith did it so much better through sheer natural talent and the good fortune of finding the right band for him. His hands and mental processes were very fast.
