In the early eighties, along with Moon confidant Peter ‘Dougal’ Butler, my co-writer Peter Lawrence and I wrote a bio of legendary drummer and raver Keith Moon. Originally published in 1981 by Star Books, over the years it has achieved cult status and become required reading on rock tour buses, with original printed copies changing hands for up to £100.00. As interest in old-school rock stars like Keith Moon has increased, the book is now being re-published under Faber & Faber’s ‘Finds’ imprint, and looks to cause a proper Keith Moon-type harouche all over again. Due out on 7th. July, it’ll be priced at £12.00 for a trade paperback, £9.99 for an ebook. See and Peter ‘Dougal’ Butler’s Facebook page.
