When I first heard this song, Under A Raging Moon by Roger Daltrey, I was blown away by it.
Although I was aware of The Who, it was this song (I still have the 12-inch single somewhere) that really inspired me to find out more about the band and their music.
Big Country‘s Mark Brzezicki played the drums on all the songs on the album but on this track he was joined by some of the leading drummers of the day to provide their own tribute to Moon. They were: Martin Chambers (The Pretenders), Roger Taylor (Queen), Cozy Powell (Rainbow/Whitesnake/Black Sabbath), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Zak Starkey (son of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, who would later play with The Who and Oasis) and Carl Palmer (ELP/Asia).
Incidentally, the song was co-written, believe it or not, by John Parr, best known for his 1985 hit St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion), the theme song from the Brat Pack movie.
Here is a live performance of the song from some time around 1985 (although the drum parts appear to be on a backing tape):
And here, as a bonus, is the original album version:
