John “Speedy” Keen


b. John Eager, 29 March 1945, Ealing, London, Britain, d. March 2002. A previous member of many struggling beat groupings, Keen garnered significant acclaim for his structure ‘Armenia City WITHIN THE Sky’, which opened up the Who’s third record, The Who Sell Out. The music group’s guitarist, Pete Townshend, nurtured this emergent skill and helped assemble Thunderclap Newman, which have scored an international strike with Eager’s portentous ‘Something WITHIN THE Surroundings’. The musician’s first single album, Prior Convictions, continuing the guarantee of his early function, but another selection, Y’Understand Wot AFTER ALL?, although appealing, was much less incisive. An affinity with malcontents resurfaced through the punk period when Keen created several periods for the important Heartbreakers, pursuing which he held a lower profile.
