Keith Moon: Rockstar Excess and a Dead Chauffeur

Episode description

Keith Moon of the Who was the prototype for rock drummers. Both onstage and off. His drumming was wholly unique. Like his bandmates behavior, it was violent and like his personality it was electric. Everyone loved Keith Moon aka “Moon The Loon” and it seemed that people never tired of his always hilarious and sometimes violent, drunken hijinks until one fateful night when a crew of British skinheads took issue with the drummer’s rockstar excess. The results were disastrous.
