Moon:The Life and Death of a Rock Legend by Tony Fletcher

Keith Moon was an exception to every known rule.He revolutionized the concept of the drummer in rock & roll, leading from the back rather than offering mere support. With the Who, he achieved far greater international fame than his instrument was meant to inspire, only to treat his celebrity as an ongoing opportunity to send up the whole notion. He sneered at the dominant British stiff upper lip while appropriating it effectively enough to delete his working-class background at will. He tempted fate with an almost unparalleled intake of alcohol and drugs, beckoning the world to laugh with him at his apparent charmed existence. More than twenty years after his death, Moon is still revered as the greatest drummer in rock history and the single wildest personality in an age of pop excess. His life and work have become the stuff of legend. Here, in the pages of this masterful book, is the unvarnished truth.<P>Music Journalist Tony Fletcher has spent more than three years researching Keith Moons life and interviewing dozens of Moons friends, colleagues, and associates. The result is an instant classic, the definitive biography of one of rocks seminal figures, a work that brilliantly illuminates both the tender and self-destructive sides of this singular personality.<P>Wielding the force and propulsive power of a novelist, Fletcher leads the reader through Moons whirlwind career, making his incredible creative trailblazing easily understandable even to nonmusici
