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.
