9780062293084: Moon: The Life and Death of a Rock Legend
Contraportada:

The Who's Keith Moon was the bad boy of rock & roll. Alongside Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and John Entwistle, Moon was the most manic member of an aggressive and fabulously successful band, a full-throttle hedonist who lived at the center of an unending party. He was also a musical genius who inspired whole generations of artists, a generous friend to nearly everyone who crossed his path, and a guileless man of immense personal charm to whom the sweetest sound on earth was surf music.

Decades after his death, Moon is still revered as the greatest drummer in rock history and the wildest personality in an age of pop excess. Venerated music journalist Tony Fletcher interviewed dozens of Moon's friends, family, and peers--including John Entwistle, Ginger Baker, Jeff Beck, Ann-Margret, and Alice Cooper--to find the truth behind the legend. The result is one of the greatest rock biographies ever written. A brilliant portrait of both the tender and self-destructive sides of this singular personality.

Críticas:

?Explosive and entertaining.?--Vanity Fair?Absorbing?a terrific read.?--People?[A] clear, sober account?if you loved the Who, you will appreciate this book.?--The Washington Post Book World?A monumental, fascinating, and highly readable portrait of rock's most flamboyant stickman. I knew Keith's drumming; now I know the rest.?--Max Weinberg?Dauntingly detailed, definitive?Fletcher clearly has done his homework. He points out so many subtleties in Moon's drumming that it's hard to imagine anything left for other journalists to say.?--Newark Star-Ledger?A major biography?Fletcher has written what will surely stand as the definitive word on one of the century's most colorful entertainers. Highly recommended.? --Library Journal?Essential tour-bus reading.? --USA Today Online?A great rock biography?an admirable piece of research, and a damn entertaining read.?--The Austin Chronicle?Fascinating?Fletcher [is] a lively storyteller with a keen ear for music?Moon manages to capture'often hilariously'the lunatic antics that earned Moon his nickname yet never fails to take him seriously as an artist.?--Entertainment Weekly?Brings [Keith Moon] into focus in greater detail than ever before, and the effect is at once awe-inspiring and horrifying.?--Gear?Entertaining?A coherent and organized account of a subject that is anything but.?--The Tampa Tribune-Times?An extremely rich, finely-observed portrait not only of the man himself but of the Who?Every rock fan'and certainly every Who fan'should own MOON.?--Fort Worth Star-Telegram?Wonderful?highly readable?full of hilarious stories but never ignores the fact that Moon's energetic drumming is what made the Who so distinctive.?--BakersfieldCalifornian?Insightful?an energizing, affectionate book.?--Palm Beach (FL) Meredian
