Default Re: Keith Moon

Not a very popular opinion... but here goes..

Love The Who, can't stand the praise Moon gets.
Yes, he's good but the godlike status he's garnered amongst drummers today doesn't seem wholly justified to me...

I tend to think that if he wasn't playing in one of (if not the) greatest rock bands in history, of which I know he made his contributions too, he wouldn't be so highly praised. Also, he died young and was charismatic as *(&(^%^%!... and lovably insane.

For me, his drumming is a little uneven dynamically and too messy.

Don't kill me! Just an opinion.. You know what they say about opinions... ><
