Re: How did Keith Moon play?
I always find it amusing people gravitate toward comparing Keith Moon to Neil Peart as point of contrast and difference.
Neil is a HUGE fan of the Who, and Keith is one of Neil's primary influences.
Many of Neil's big roundhouse licks are adapted from things Moon played.
Neil took what Moon did and applied structure to it.
So while the end results their two playing styles seem miles apart, they have a common ground.
