Thread: Teenage wasteland

  1. Default

    Να σου πω τι είσαι ...


    In an NME interview from 1972, Keith explains something about his inspiration: I love to see people laugh, and I love it more if I can make them laugh. I think this comes across in my drumming.

    I watch a lot of Marx Brothers movies,€ he continued, and they were doing the same sorts of things. It’s a question of taking somebody else’s music, but not sending it up in a derogatory sense. Just injecting your own personality. Pete Townshend’s music allows me to do just this.

    A live version of Baba O’Riley from Houston in 1975 is readily available online, and the drum-less synthesizer intro is a perfect example of Moon’s epic clowning. He stands on his drum stool, strikes absurd poses, points faux-dramatically into the cheap seats, and twirls and spins his sticks constantly, sometimes in sympathetic rhythm with the synth burbles. It’s a brilliant showbiz performance, inserting comedy and farce into the pretension of Townshend’s brilliant composition. Is it a necessary piece of the whole? I’m voting for a resounding yes. As Townshend’s aspirations stray further from the blistering simplicity of their early singles, Moon reframes the tunes with his comedy and joy. As he says above, it’s not derogatory, and clearly Townshend does not take it as such.

    The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again (Shepperton Studios / 1978)


    Filmed by Jeff Stein for the closing sequence of The Kids Are Alright. Sadly this was to be the very last performance ever by Keith Moon.

    It was a big honour for me to be included in Episode 3 of Sky Arts Series 'The Art Of Drumming'. I was invited to talk about Keith Moon and demonstrate his style. In this video there's no talking, only drumming! Thanks to The Who for creating great music.

  6. Default The kids will always be allright

    My Generation (The Who);


    Townshend has also credited Mose Allison's "Young Man Blues" as the inspiration for the song, saying "Without Mose I wouldn't have written 'My Generation'." Townshend told Rolling Stone in 1985 that "'My Generation' was very much about trying to find a place in society."

    Ben Sidran, Georgie Fame, Van Morrison, Mose Allison "Tell Me Something"

    Tell Me Something: The Songs of Mose Allison

    If you live your time will come
    I say if you live your time will come
    So child don't mess with that cotton sack
    It will scratch your knees and bend your back
    And if you live your time will come
    If you live your day will come
    If you live your day will come
    So child don't play with those pots and pans
    They will soon enough ruin your pretty hands
    And if you live your time will come
    If you live a day will come
    If you live a day will come
    When the sun will shine
    And the crops will grow
    And you think you're not gonna worry no more
    But if you live, your time will come


    Over and out ας μιλήσει και κανένας άλλος.

    You who are on the road
    Must have a code that you can live by
    And so become yourself
    Because the past is just a good-bye.
    Teach your children well,
    Their father's hell did slowly go by,
    And feed them on your dreams
    The one they picks, the one you'll know by.
    Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,


    So just look at them and sigh
    And know they love you.
    And you, of tender years,
    Can't know the fears that your elders grew by,
    And so please help them with your youth,
    They seek the truth before they can die.
    Teach your parents well,
    Their children's hell will slowly go by,
    And feed them on your dreams
    The one they picks, the one you'll know by.
    Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
    So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

    Well, I stood stone-like at midnight, suspended in my masquerade
    And I combed my hair till it was just right, and commanded the night brigade
    I was open to pain and crossed by the rain and I walked on a crooked crutch
    I strolled all alone through a fallout zone and came out with my soul untouched
    I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd, but when they said, "Sit down," I stood up
    Ooh... growin' up

    The flag of piracy flew from my mast, my sails were set wing to wing
    I had a jukebox graduate for first mate, she couldn't sail but she sure could sing
    I pushed B-52 and bombed them with the blues with my gear set stubborn on standing
    I broke all the rules, strafed my old high school, never once gave thought to landing
    I hid in the clouded warmth of the crowd, but when they said, "Come down," I threw up
    Ooh... growin' up

    I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere, and you know it's really hard to hold your breath
    Swear I lost everything I ever loved or feared, I was the cosmic kid in full costume dress
    Well, my feet they finally took root in the earth, but I got me a nice little place in the stars
    And I swear I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car
    I hid in the mother breast of the crowd, but when they said, "Pull down," I pulled up
    Ooh... growin' up
    Ooh... growin' up
