Moon's early influences were jazz, surf music and R&B. His idols included Gene Krupa, D J Fontana (Elvis Presley's original drummer), Tony Meehan (Shadows) and Viv Prince (the Pretty Things). He also enjoyed singing, and loved Motown and idolised the Beach Boys. Unlike drummers such as Ginger Baker & John Bonham, Keith Moon hated drum solos and refused to play them in concerts.
