A drummer such as Keith Moon wouldn't have done that, I feel. He'd have been all over the kit in that flashy way of his - and don't get me wrong, I LOVE Moon's drumming. The man was a drummy god.
The best way I ever heard it was shortly after Keith's death in '78.
Ringo kept time. Keith PLAYED the drums.
Love 'em both for different reasons but couldn't agree with that phrase more.
