Music Diary – 7th September

Welcome to my music diary again – today for the 7th September!

Keith Moon (23rd August 1946 - 7th September 1978)

Keith Moon (23rd August 1946 – 7th September 1978)

In 1978 the music world lost one of the best drummers – Mr. Keith John Moon from the legendary rock band The Who. Moon died at the age of only 32 years (born on 23rd August 1946). His body was found in his flat in Mayfair, London. The 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.

With John Entwistle on bass he created this very unique and powerful rhtyhmsound of The Who.  Timeless records and masterpieces like “My Generation” (1965), “Tommy” (1969), “Live at Leeds” (1970) and “Who’s Next” (1971) features Moon’s outstanding and unique drumming.


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