"Hilarious results . . . brimming with rock references and Who aficionados will enjoy the ominous presence of Cass Elliot, who died in the exact same apartment as Moon four years earlier. Sure, creepy in real life. But perfect here." —Huffington Post

I laughed when I saw it on the surface. I enjoyed its cleverness and wit. But it kept coming back to haunt me. It was more than a laugh. It's a reminder of a feeling long ago of just starting to grow up and let go of childhood and remembering being so sad at Moon's death. I was 13 when Keith Moon died.
Maybe the best part: Keith's nature. He'd love it as much as anyone would. And probably get it more than anyone else could.
There could be no better tribute, either to Keith Moon or childhood. They are both gone forever and much missed.
I was not disappointed. I signed up to purchase a copy which I awaited with baited breath. Clever, funny and true to form, this parody is the perfect gift for any slightly twisted baby boom rocker in your life. Extra credit to any youngsters who embrace this little piece of perfection. and ick.
It's been decades for this 'fan' and still I was nauseated. And they have the audacity to show a Keith Moon in his prime - not the man as he was; poisoned from years of self-abuse and clearly ill. I can not express enough how distasteful this book is. Parody? Idiocy. Aside from being just stoo-pid, the 'authors' are not even witty in there unexplainable lack of taste. Sure, people can detach and say it's a joke...but, this is one of those that has absolutely no point or actual laugh involved. It's kindling for the day's fire. DO NOT GIVE to anyone - let alone actual fans of Moon (his talents, legacy, and antics),it's an emotional speed-slap.
We've explained the Who references and how Keith Moon died, but it doesn't concern us at all as our son understands that death does happen, even to the greatest of people. It's reality and as long as he understands that addiction is what killed him, even as he tried to stop, it's a somewhat humorously dark way of explaining an unfortunately common experience. He was more enthralled with the fact that Animal was in there than disturbed by his death.
If you have children who are sheltered from death, and unfortunately mine had go to through a similar accidental OD from prescription pills with their grandmother, then this book is not for you.
