It would be hard for most drummers to sound like Keith Moon.

They kinda DID sound like `The Who with Kenney'. But around '79, all I wanted
was to have Keith back. I sometimes have dreams where I get sad watching
Keith being himself, being self-destructive.

I agree. Especially since there were probably lots of Keith imitators out
there among the wanna-be's that would have loved to join.

You can still listen to his pre-Who stuff and maybe you can figure out if
there's some kind of problem with him trying to play with The Who. I've
always just chalked it up to Kenney's being burned out by '79, but maybe
someone can discern some other problem.
