Re: How did Keith Moon play?
I don't really rate Keith Moon as a drummer. I think for the time period he appeared he was seen as an absolute mentalist behind the kit, but in terms of his actual playing style, I think it was more flamboyancy than anything.
The fact the guy was smacked off his tits for pretty much every playing scenario he was in probably also contributed towards his OTT playing style.
I must admit, I do think the visual aspect of drumming the 90% of pop music fans is more important than the actual drumming itself, Keith Moon is a prime example of this.
Apologies to anyone who is a massive fan, The Who had been and gone waaaay before I was born.
