KEITH MOON: The lone drummer who loves his dog – DISC and MUSIC ECHO – JANUARY 21, 1967

Disc and Music Echo, Who

He is the smallest, the youngest and the roundest member of the Who. He has a sweet, innocent, little-boy smile off-stage that changes into a lunatic grin when he starts to attack his drum kit.

Then he looks quite ferocious. Driving at the drums as though he were hammering tent pegs into the ground. Sometimes, he breaks four sets of drum sticks a night.

Keith Moon: “They’re like toys to me,” he said gently, almost whispering, staring into space, wide-eyed. “Like the little tin drums I used to play with at home.”
