The title track to Daltrey's sixth solo album, "Under a Raging Moon" is about Keith Moon, the wildman drummer who was his bandmate in The Who until 1978, when he died of a drug overdose.
The song was written by John Parr and Julia Downes - Parr had a #1 hit earlier in the year with "St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)
"; Downes wrote the 1982 track "Machinery" for Sheena Easton. In our interview with Parr
, he explained: "My former manager was with The Who since they began. He started out as Keith's driver and was their tour manger for over 20 years. During the many journeys we shared he would regale me with stories of Keith's exploits. It was as if I was there and I knew him."
