Biography
Keith Moon Born on August 1946, in Wembley London, to Alfred and Kathleen Moon cultivated a reputation as one of rock's great characters. His devil-may-care propulsiveness was always apparent in a drumming technique which eschewed conventional rhythm and goaded fellow instrumentalists into equally powerhouse retorts. His talent enhances the cream of the Who's output, including "The Ox" (1965), "I Can See For Miles" (1967) and "Won't Get Fooled Again" (1971) while his quirky compositions for the group have included "I Need You", "Waspman", "Cobwebs And Strange" and "Tommy's Holiday Camp". A life-long fan of surf music, Moon also inspired the Beach Boys/Jan And Dean selections on the 1966 EP Ready Steady Who. This particular fascination was also apparent on the drummer's lone solo album, Two Sides Of The Moon, which included a version of Brian Wilson's "Don't Worry Baby". The set featured material by John Lennon, Harry Nilsson and the Who, but a supporting cast drawn from the Los Angeles music fraternity failed to conceal it's self-indulgence. Its release emphasized the euphemistic "rock 'n' roll life-style" in which Moon was now trapped, and having established a reputation for unconventional behaviour, he now felt compelled to live up to it. Tales of destruction were legendary, but Moon was now increasingly debilitated by drug and alcohol abuse, and his professional life inevitably suffered. Indeed "Music Must Change", a track on Who Are You (1978), was left without a drum track when he was unable to hold the required beat. "I'm still the best Keith Moon-style drummer in the world" he defiantly proclaimed, but the failure doubtless hurt. Sadly, the album was to be the last to feature Moon, who died in September 1978 as a result of an overdose of prescription drugs. Admired in both the rock and jazz fields, his talent was bound to his extrovert personality and the sound of the Who has been appreciably different without him. Since his death his standing as a musician has increased and many feel that Moon was unique in his chosen field. His private life was another affair, and this is superbly documented in outrageous fashion in Tony Fletcher's recent biography.

Well this really ain't my argument, as I'm not overly keen on either ac/dc or Metallica; but Angus Young was a breath of fresh air when he came on the scene...Kirk Hammett is just one of hundreds of run-of-the-mill shred-merchants who bring absolutely nothing new to the rock and roll dinner table....GO ANGUS DA DA DA DA DA DA DA!! :grin:  :grin:

Yeah Angus brought a lot new to the rock and roll dinner table... Power chords and pentatonics! Whoohoo! I have nothing against those, but when you play them the same in every single song, it kinda gets bland.

But I don't care, make a legends topic on him if you want, it might be interesting and I might learn something!

It aint what chords and scales you use its how you do it.If it sounds right then thats all that matters.I would say Angus is a legend.I would certainly say hes more of a legend that say Vai or Malmsteen for eg.


I agree with the bit about the chords but it was Malcolm Young who wrote most of the rhythm parts anyway so it's beside the point.

God bless The Who for saving rock and roll.

In my opinion, the fill before Roger's scream in Won't Get Fooled Again has to be one of the best.

i would definately say that angus is a legend. his solos are incredible, and in every song, he never fails to amaze you with his power chords and pentatonics. my favorite song and solo by him is definately thunderstruck. the opening riff is sweet![B] ph34r.gif
for those about to rock, we salute you!

*cracks open dead thread*

I've seen footage of Keith...he's off his rocker...He had more drums on stage then frets on a guitar...I like his explosive endings too...
