Keith has admitted to learning things from listening to Elvin
and Elvin had expressed his appreciation for Keiths playing as well

"The man is a drummer. Everything he plays, he contains it." —Elvin Jones on Keith Moon

"I've picked up bits of Elvin Jones, Krupa, Philly Joe Jones - they were the sort of people I listened to for drumming."
- Keith Moon

i've spoken personally to Elvin about Keith because when I was studying with him I was in one of my Moonie obsession phases.....he had nothing but wonderful things to say about Keith and his playing.
Elvin absolutely loved Keiths creativity and expression
