Moon: The Life and Death of a Rock Legend: Book

As I've listened to disc 2 the "The Who: The Ultimate Collection," I keep thinking about the man playing all those innovative drum beats. I haven't been able to reconcile Keith Moon's hedonistic legend with the artist.

In a lot of ways, I guess the artist lives a somewhat separate life from his art. You could listen to The Who and never know that the drummer was someone who lived on the edge of sanity; that he was an alcoholic; that he was a husband and a father. I've always been interested in the intersection between those two lives.

So far, I've just read the Forward and flipped through the pictures, but this looks to be an interesting read -- even if it is 608 pages long!
