Keith Moon
 John DeStefano's drum set © John T. DeStefano 2001

Longtime drummer for the Who, Keith Moon is his lifetime destroyed more drum kits than most musicians have the opportunity to play on. Moon was an obvious inspiration for the muppet drummer Animal. Moon died tragically in 1978 of an overdose of sleeping pills. Keith was renowned for his offbeat style of playing -- which meant he wasn't a real good timekeeper, but one of the most exciting drummers to hear. His strangely placed rolls help set the Who apart from other bands of the era.
