Keith Moon was renowned for his offbeat style of playing
which meant he wasn't a real good timekeeper, and one of the most exciting drummers
to hear. His strangely placed rolls and hits on classics like "I Can See
for Miles" help set the Who apart from other bands of the era.
Died 7 September 1978, London.
died tragically on September 7 1978
of an accidental overdose of pills he had been prescribed to control his
alcoholism. He was replaced in the Who's lineup
by Kenney Jones.
