Default Re: How did Keith Moon play?

Maybe its one of those "you had to be there" kind of things, but I really dont get it.
I agree totally. I've never been a fan of Moon. I love The Who, though. But Keith's playing is simply awful. i couldn't get on board with it. It just didn't make any sense. It was like a 10 year old kid just beating on drums..And trashing your drum kit is not cool, it's just....pointless..
