Keith Moon

Keith Altham, Rave, July 1969

CONDUCTING an interview with Keith Moon is rather like running a mental obstacle course with a megalomaniac (his manager's reference, not mine), with imminent danger to your own person. I have always felt that Moon should be made to wear a placard reading, "Those riding on this machine do so at their own risk". I also feel that he deserves, along with the Beatles, a monument to testify to his outstanding irreverence for jingoism and "The British Way Of Life".
