October 21, 1976

Born in Wembley, London, England on the 23rd of August, 1946, Keith Moon seemed to be a bit of a problem child right at the start. Being extremely hyperactive as a child, he would often have a vivid imagination and this would get him into trouble at school. He had a fondness for practical jokes, and often found himself fascinated by explosions - the louder, the better. Remember that point for later. Moon joined the local Sea Cadet Corps band at the age of twelve to play the bugle, but when he couldn't figure out how to play it, he switched to playing the drums. After leaving school at age fourteen, he enrolled at a technical college, leading him to get a job as a radio repairman, allowing him to purchase his very first drum set. Now, how he came to join The Who is a frequently disputed story, but the facts we do know is that The Who needed a new drummer after the departure of Doug Sandom in early 1964, and Moon arrived at a concert given by the band with a session drummer filling in. The most commonly believed story goes that Moon approached the band and told them that he could play much better than the guy who was playing for them. The rest of the band gave him a chance, and Moon played with such vigor that he reportedly nearly destroyed the drum set that was at the venue! Moon then became The Who's permanent replacement beginning in mid-1964. And, with Keith Moon joining the band, it caused a permanent change in dynamics of the group. You see, the band members of The Who played beautiful music together, but it was also widely known that the members of the band had terrible personal relationships with each other. The feud between Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend often had clashes with each other, but back when Sandom was still in the band, he acted as peacemaker and would calm both Daltrey and Townshend down. After all, Sandom was at least a decade older than the other members of The Who when he joined. But here came this new guy, Keith Moon, with a hyperactive...
