Abstinence! Both are fantastic drummers, imo! Each has their own styles, talents and skills. Although Keith Moon may well have been somewhat erratic or moody at times, when he was on, he was amazing! John Bonham was extremely talented, and also very impressionable with his abilities, imo! I was greatly impressed with both his drumming on the first LZ album, as well as with many of the other albums!

Two of my faves but John Bonham is my all time No 1 when it comes to the skins. Incredible power but controlled and his timing is on the button.

The Who had something more lunatic in mind from the get go.
hahah that is true. In today's day and age I do not even think Bonham could really compete with most drummers since there are really some isanely great drummers.

Musicians progress we all know that..

Moon fit The Who just like Bonham fit Zep. I can not see them in any other bands quite honestly.

Bill Ward is another one I would mention with these two.

However...Bonham could have played with anyone and that band would have kicked ass.
I agree

I like Keith Moon and can see why he's popular, but this is always so easy...Bonham for sure. I think Bonham brought more to Zeppelin than Moon brought to The Who - and has proven much more influential over time.

( full disclosure - I'm a bass player...I'm all about the groove and the pocket...makes it an easy choice for me)

Calling Moon ''sloppy'' is like calling Bonham ''too basic''....

Both great drummers....

two of the GREATEST...

animals behind the kit...

but Keith Moon for me....

Keith Moon was an innovator...

the man created new drum beats....very creative...

there was no other drummer like him.

And that's why that band would never make it.

Keith Moon isn't a dime a dozen.
