Music Diary – 23rd August

Welcome to my music diary again!


Today, in the year 1946, one of the best drummer ever was born in London:
Mr. Keith John Moon!

With John Entwistle on bass he created this very unique and powerful rhtyhmsound of the legendary The WhoKeith Moon recorded with The Who timeless records like „My Generation“ (1965), „Tommy“ (1969), „Live at Leeds“ (1970) and „Who’s Next“ (1971). Moon’s death came shortly after the release of „Who Are You“. On the album cover, he is straddling a chair to hide his weight gain; the words „Not to be taken away“ are on the back of the chair.

Moon was found dead in his flat on the 7th September 1978 – he died at the age 32. Police determined that there were 32 clomethiazole pills in Moon’s system. Six were digested, sufficient to cause his death; the other 26 were undigested when he died.

In November 1978, Kenney Jones, formerly of the Small Faces and the Faces, joined the band as Moon’s successor.
