Keith Moon CD/Drumkit

(PR) Keith Moon, the Who's legendary rock'n'roll drummer is the subject of two key releases next month. Premier Percussion Ltd has just announced a special limited edition drum kit, "Spirit of Lily" which is named after the Who's 1967 single "Pictures of Lily". The drum kit will retail for �4,995, and will include the original artwork that adorned the original kit and drum sizes played by Moon. Premier have released the replica kit to celebrate the 40th anniversary from when the Pictures of Lily single was released in 1967.

On July 3rd, Castle Music will release Keith's rare solo album "Two Sides of the Moon" as a Deluxe Edition CD, featuring previously unreleased bonus material including rare out-takes, special mixes, spoken word and extensive liner notes. Guest musicians include Ringo Starr, David Bowie, Harry Nilsson, Ronnie Wood, Flo & Eddie, Steve Cropper, Joe Walsh and Dick Dale.

Moon, who passed away at the age of 32 on September 7th, 1978, would have celebrated his 60th birthday this year (August 23rd). Both Moon releases lead up to The Who's highly anticipated new studio album (released later this year), and their much talked about forthcoming 11-minute rock opera single "Wire & Glass" - a song about a teenage band that finds global fame through the internet.
