[English]

Compiled by Ian Snowball and authorised by the Estate of Keith Moon and Keith's daughter, Amanda De Wolf, There Is No Substitute is a fitting tribute to The Who's legendary late drummer Keith Moon.

Including many photographs - some previously unseen - and contributions from Keith's friends and fans as well as musicians (notably drummers), commentators and those who knew him best.

Focusing on Keith's influence as a drummer and musician, the book assesses the impact he made on rock 'n' roll, while also reflecting the deep affection that his madcap genius inspired among those with whom he came into contact. Shifting the emphasis from the outrageous mischief to the music, the book celebrates the power and artistry behind Moon's drumming, including contributions that explains why his was such a unique legacy in rock percussion.

Interviewees include Kenney Jones, who became The Who's drummer after Keith's death, 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.

Críticas:

Refreshingly, [Moon s] supernatural ability and the complex, individual behind it provides Snowball s main focus, which comes with backing from Moon s estate, forward by Blondie s Clem Burke and heartfelt introduction by Pete Townsend, before names such as Kenney Jones, Mick Avory, Jack Bruce and Carl Palmer are nicely balanced by lesser-known musicians, friends, associates and fans; all with a story to tell and reasons to praise Moon s impact and influence, accompanied by photos and memorabilia.

Inevitably, there are also frequent glimpses of the irrepressibly larger-than-life jester who could never kick back from his image but died trying. It all makes for a worthy tribute

--Kris Needs, Record Collector

A bit like treating him as the subject of a Marvel superhero comic strip, this paperback graphic tells the eventful story through the medium of drawings of him and many of the other people involved. It s a well-known journey, of course. But the novelty is the approach itself with its deployment of artistic likenesses, many based on actual photographs. The easily digested illustrated narrative starting with Moon s death, and then going right back to the beginning helps convey the bittersweet tale of the great sticksman and renowned prankster. --Beat Magazine
