Renowned party animal and phenomenal drummer for The Who, Keith Moon lived fast and died young. Not a typical biography, this compendium of stories, facts, photos, and analysis is divided up by subject and details all aspects of Moon's personal and professional life. Among the topics discussed are his promising film career, his unique drumming style, his obsessions and addictive personality, and a notorious period in the 1970s called "the lost weekend." Interviews and commentary from some of his closest friends and contemporaries, such as Viv Stanshall, Harry Nilsson, Frank Zappa, and Screaming Lord Sutch, and more than 60 photographs fill in the details of Moon's short life.
