Keith Moon: There Is No SubstituteOmnibus
By Ian Snowball
With an introduction by Pete Townshend, There Is No Substitute is a tribute to The Who's late drummer Keith Moon, compiled by Ian Snowball with the authorisation of the Keith Moon Estate and Keith's daughter Amanda De Wolf.
The book includes a collection of seen and unseen photographs and contributions from friends and fans of Keith - a diverse cross section of drummers, musicians, fans, writers and people that knew him.
The book concentrates on Keith's influence as a drummer and musician and the impact he has had on rock'n'roll, and all reflect the deep affection that his madcap genius inspired in everyone with whom he came into contact.
The many interviewees include Kenney Jones, who took over the drum in The Who after Keith's death in 1978, Rick Buckler of The Jam, Don Powell of Slade, Mick Avory of the Kinks, Carl Palmer of ELP, Clem Burke of Blondie and the late Jack Bruce.
