About this title:
Synopsis:
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").

About the Author:
Peter 'Dougal' Butler grew up in the same 1960s London milieu as the founding members (Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, Keith Moon) of the band that became The Who. Leaving school aged 15, Butler was first employed by HM Customs & Excise, but after finding his way into The Who's inner circle he became personal assistant, chauffeur, bodyguard, and minder to the band's drummer, Keith Moon. Butler carried out these functions for a tumultuous ten years, following Moon to live in Los Angeles in the mid-1970s, but leaving the Who's employ in the year prior to Moon's untimely death by overdose in September 1978. In the years immediately thereafter Butler worked with film and TV writers (and long-time collaborators) Peter Lawrence and Chris Trengove to produce Full Moon, a widely admired memoir of his experiences with Moon.
