Lockdown City
« on: July 16, 2020, 03:50:38 AM »
Hi Everyone

Everything has been very quiet during lockdown. I have been reading the Keith Moon biography - Dear Boy by Tony Fletcher.

Keith Moon was a really big surf music fan and had a record player fitted in his chauffeur driven car and blasted Jan and Dean - especially Dead Man's Curve.

He was a very idiosyncratic drummer but I think you can hear the influence of Hal Blaine (as on Jan and Dean).

Mark writes about Moon in his book.

Yes. Iíve always heard that Keith Moon was a big fan. Of course he does a cool version of Bucket T. I seem to remember he loved Honolulu Lulu. But I donít remember where I heard that

There's a good video on You Tube

Also a video of Pan's People (the UK dance group that performed on Top of the Pops most famously) dancing to Bucket T.

I bet Keith would have loved to sit in on the drums at a J&D concert for a few songs. And Iím sure the guys would be happy to let him. Same goes for The Beach Boys. He was a lover of surf music and left us way too soon.
