Enter the Angel

Keith Moon was infamously uncontrollable in more ways than one. Apparently it was humanly impossible for him to simply play a consistent beat without adding fills and triplets throughout. His playing style was idiosyncratic and bombastic, but he had innate ability, so I guess if you’ve got it, flaunt it. And Keith, in the immortal words of fellow drummer Robert Wyatt, hit his drums so hard he broke all their heads. Yet it wasn’t until the reign of John Bonham, likewise a hard hitter, that studio engineers got the brilliant idea of micing the drum kit from out in the hallway.
Anyway, the best drummers all die from alcohol poisoning, take a drunken fall out of a window, or simply spontaneously combust. Except Christian Vander, of course, but he’s just stark raving mad.
