Live on Kaleidoscope: Goodnight Keith Moon Co-author Bruce Worden

Bruce Worden says the idea for Goodnight Keith Moon came during his son's storytime. 

"I had probably been listening to some Who albums during the day, and then at night I was reading Goodnight Moon to my son at bedtime," says Worden. "It just sort of struck me that saying 'goodnight moon' was kind of a little eulogy for Keith Moon."

Here Worden describes the development of the parody picture book, Goodnight Keith Moon with his co-author Clare Cross.
