The Who: (Keith) Moon Probe

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 22 April 1972

2005 note: As well as being their drummer and resident comedian, Keith Moon was the Who's PR man. Journalists unfamiliar with the group may have had to contact the long-suffering Keith Altham to obtain access but once the wall had been breached Keith, uniquely for one in his position, not only made himself available virtually any time to anyone with a pen and notebook but pro-actively sought out journalists to help boost the group's media profile.
