Keith Moon was a revolutionary rock drummer, and one of the greatest drummers in the history of rock 'n' roll. Keith was a big
influence on me when I started to play drums. I was drawn to his wild, reckless playing because I hadn't heard the drums played in that manner before.
When I read other legendary rock drummers like John Bonham and Neil Peart cited Keith Moon as an
influence on their playing, I knew I was on to something. Even Buddy Rich was rumored to have given Keith's approach to drumming praise. From what I gather, Buddy Rich
rarely had anything nice to say about anyone, so Keith must have really impressed him.
