Omtale Full Moon
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").
