Default Re: Keith Moon

Always something previously undiscovered in every recorded Keith Moon performance.
Here's one of my favorites. Besides being a great song, it's got some truly classic Moon drumming. Listen to how he plays off of the vocal line as soon as it comes in, how he tastefully kicks the verse with little snare rolls and off-beat cymbal crashes. Listen to how he dives deep into the instrumental break at 1:57, just propelling that section with his around-the-kit pyrotechnics. His sense of drama and dynamics is breath-takingly one-of-a-kind. It's perfect, a great performance by a great band with the most original drummer rock music has even seen.
Yes, I'm a huge fan.
