Jon's Drum Cam - "Who Are You" Performed by The Who Experience
September 12, 2023
It’s time for a special edition of Jon’s Drum Cam, featuring The Who Experience at Farnsworth Park Amphitheater in Altadena, CA! It’s special because it’s a DUAL cam this time! Not only do I have my Zoom Q2n on the right side, but I also have the “B Cam” on the left. Not “B” as in second, but “B” as in Brianne who also happens to be the greatest person ever and the love of my life.
This one is also special because it’s a part of my last performance with The Who Experience. Well, not “last” last, but it’ll be a little while I’m guessing. I absolutely LOVE performing as Keith Moon, and I’m so glad I was able to. Before joining the band in 2018, I always thought about how much fun it would be to be in a Who band. So when the opportunity did come up, I immediately said yes!
Keith Moon is, and always will be in my list of top three favorite drummers, and this song is easily one of my favorite Who songs to play. It’s the perfect mix of fun groove and Keith’s “controlled chaos.” It is a fact that while Ringo Starr was why I chose to play the drums, Moon is why I stuck to it. While I never wanted to follow in his personal life footsteps, his playing was a major inspiration in my early playing. In sessions I did early in my career, my playing was a mix of Keith Moon, Stewart Copeland from The Police, and Roger Taylor from Queen. By that I mean I stole a lot of their drum fills.
I’ll definitely be posting more videos from this show, including from the first set where the same band does Led Zeppelin! Stay tuned!
