Default Re: Keith Moon

There is something about Keith Moon's free flowing drumming style that really appeals to me.
Technical proficiency in drumming seems to take away from the feel and emotion that Moon is able to inject in the Who's music.
I have been intrigued by his waiving flowing motion through the kit and the way he held the sticks like they were conductor's wands.
I love John Bonham's power and Ian Paice's speed, but Mitch Mitchell's creativity and Moon's colourful shades of sound are all part of the drumming I like to emulate. A drum kit can be more than a time keeper.
