Keith John Moon, who died on this day 7 September 1978, was an English drummer who played with The Who. Noted for his unique style and his eccentric, often self-destructive behaviour, his drumming continues to be praised by critics and musicians. He was posthumously inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1982, becoming only the second rock drummer to be chosen, and in 2011 Moon was voted the second-greatest drummer in history by a Rolling Stone readers' poll. #LondonMusicMap #Londonmusic #London #music #map #rock #classicrock #drummer #KeithMoon #MoonTheLoon ...

The Streets' debut album 'Original Pirate Material' was released 15 years ago, on the 25th March 2002.

Although rapper and producer Mike Skinner hails from Birmingham, the album was written and recorded largely in Brixton, South London where Skinner was living at the time.

Also, the cover artwork features a photograph by German photographer Rut Blees Luxemburg called 'Towering Inferno'. The block of flats pictured is the South face of Kestrel House on City Road, London N1.

The location of Kestral House and many other famous and not-so-famous music sites can be found on The London Music Map.
