Quotes by Tony Fletcher  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Favorite food? Blues (speed). Miscellaneous likes? Birds. Professional ambition? To smash one hundred drum kits. Personal ambition? To stay young forever. There you have it, the world of Keith Moon effectively encapsulated in a few choice words. Straightforward hedonistic pleasures, cheerfully destructive tendencies, and an unattainable goal, except in the words that Townshend had just written and which Moon alone would live up/down to: 'Hope I die before I get old.”
Tony Fletcher, Moon: The Life and Death of a Rock Legend
tags: thewho

“whirlwind of somewhat belligerent delight.”
Tony Fletcher, Dear Boy: The Life of Keith Moon

“...Nico, dresses in virginal white, sang in a voice one writer described as "like a cello getting up in the morning”
Tony Fletcher, All Hopped Up and Ready to Go: Music from the Streets of New York 1927-77
