It’s impossible to see a list of the greatest drummers of all time and not see Keith Moon at or near the top of the list. The legendary drummer for The Who was born on August 23, 1946, and he joined The Who 18 years later.

With the band, Moon created quite the name for himself as an over-the-top showman onstage, but it was his wild off-stage antics that earned him the nickname “Moon the Loon.”

Now, for his birthday, The Who made a funny on Twitter to honor the larger-than-life drummer—have a laugh at the topical birthday wishes below!

While Moon sadly passed away in 1978, he will always remain one of the greatest drummers in rock history.
