Keith John Moon (23 August 1946 – 7 September 1978) was an English drummer for the rock band the Who. He was noted for his unique style and his eccentric, often self-destructive behavior.

MOON THE LOON: In addition to his talent as a drummer, however, Moon developed a reputation for smashing his kit on stage and destroying hotel rooms on tour. He was fascinated by blowing up toilets with cherry bombs or dynamite, and by destroying television sets.He became addicted to alcohol, particularly brandy and champagne, and acquired a reputation for decadence and dark humour; his nickname was "Moon the Loon."

'A QUICK ONE, WHILE HE'S AWAY': In 1968, the Rolling Stones decided to put together a concert featuring an impressive line-up including Jethro Tull, John Lennon, Eric Clapton and the Who. The show, The Rock and Roll Circus, never made it to air as the Stones claimed to be unhappy with their performance, and it remained in the vaults until the '90. Still, the Who gave an incredible rendition of "A Quick One While He's Away" that night, and it got seen in their documentary, The Kids Are Alright. Moon's pulls out every trick from his arsenal.

FRENCH BLUES: Moon led a destructive lifestyle. During the Who's early days he began taking amphetamines, and in a New Musical Express interview said his favourite food was "French Blues." An integral part of the frenetic lifestyle of the Mods, amphetamine pills such as Purple Hearts, French Blues and Black Bombers.
