Description

With Chris Trengove and Peter Lawrence

In 1967 Peter 'Dougal' Butler became a roadie for The Who and their mercurial genius drummer Keith Moon. Soon he would be Moon's personal assistant, chauffeur, and all-purpose wingman. The ride lasted a tumultuous ten years, ending just prior to Moon's untimely death in 1978. Full Moon is Butler's memoir of that ride: essential reading for Who fans, and a masterclass in the mayhem caused by rock 'n' roll excess.

'The most candid insight into the Who star's life.' Daily Star

'Written in a wonderful fast, racy style, Runyonesque and full of good jokes.' Girl About Town

'A welcome change from the usual bland rock book reportage... Butler clearly has a deep and lasting affection for Moon.' Andy Gill, NME

'Certainly outrageous, sometimes funny, but mostly a sad account of life with a talented neurotic.' Daily Mirror
