Editorial Reviews

The most notoriously reckless drummer in rock (now, that's reckless) met his inevitable end on September 6, 1978. But it wasn't his well-known alcoholism that killed him-it was the very pills prescribed to help him overcome it. This profile of his last days features archival footage, dramatic reenactments and interviews with those closest to Keith.

3.0 out of 5 stars ONE Side Of The Moon October 23, 2012
Good morning, campers!

It's your old pal Keith Moon here. You know, "Moonie," "Moon the Loon" ...or, as I very much prefer, The Greatest Rock and Roll Drummer that Ever Was, that is. Or was. I think... But I digress.

Anyroad, we meet today so that I may bring your undivided attention to this marvelous DVD disc entitled - just a moment here, as I do want to make sure I get this completely correct - ahh, yes. "Keith Moon, Final 24: His Final Hours."

Well then! I guess you could call this the, well, final word on the subject, ah-HA-Ha-HaHaHa!

Final 24: His Final Hours. Yes, a tad redundant, I do agree, but nevertheless this splendid disc does promise to, in the very words of its very own press sheet you see, "unlock the hidden secrets, psychological flaws and events that result in the tragic deaths of global icons." Here here!

"Maps out the final twenty-four hours of a famous person's life," it goes on. "Weaves the star's back-story with events from their last day, which lays bare the threads of fate that led inextricably from childhood to the moment of death." I see! "These are no ordinary biographies." I should hope not... "They're psychological detective stories attempting to uncover the mystery of why the celebrity died."

You know, I've been wondering that myself quite a bit, I must say! ah-HA-Ha-HaHaHa!

MY "final 24" then: Bailing out on Paul McCartney's "Buddy Holly Story" premiere party - a dreadful bore, it truly was ...and I don't just mean the movie - then home for a quick cutlet and "Dr. Phibes" - now THERE'S a movie, mate! - lay it all down beside the missus for a quick kip and then... and then...

5.0 out of 5 stars Keith Moon: His final hours June 23, 2010
On September 6th, 1978 Keith Moon attended a screening for the movie The Buddy Holly Story held by Paul McCartney and his wife Linda. The Who had just released the album Who Are You less than a month earlier to critical acclaim and the screening promised to be one of the biggest social events in London that year. He had initially turned down the invitation, but as the night wore on finally gave in. He was given a seat of honor at the hosts' dinner table. He also announced plans to propose to his girlfriend that night--Keith Moon had every intention of getting his life together, of settling down.

Moon had come to London's West End to escape from the world of rock and roll and all of the temptations it offered as he tried to kick an alcohol addiction that had been raging out of control for more than a decade. He was staying at a flat owned by friend Harry Nilsson with the woman he planned to propose to, Swedish model Annette Walter-Lax. He had been prescribed the medication Heminevrin, a strong sedative, to counter his withdrawal symptoms during detox.

Moon had been reluctant to attend the McCartney's preview party; he knew what temptations might possibly be waiting for him and he didn't trust himself to be strong enough to turn them down. He had been through failed rehab attempts before and had decided that the only way to guarantee success was to completely avoid all situations where alcohol would be served.

Keith Moon had many reasons to turn his life around: he was in love with Annette and had decided to ask her to marry him, his band's latest album was a huge commercial and critical success, more importantly, his health and his drumming were beginning to suffer from the years of drug and alcohol abuse. He also had one other motivation to dry out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keith Moon June 29, 2010
Keith Moon really enjoyed his fame. He was wild and partied a lot, destroying hotel rooms and drums in the process. But he was also one of the best drummers in the business, one that also paid the high price of an early death due to his excesses. And we, as humans, don't get tired of all the gossip that surrounds famous people deaths, particularly by drugs or the like. "Keith Moon - Final 24: His Final Hours" is another fascinating and captivating episode of the series "Final 24," which examines the last 24 hours of the late rock artist.

As with other episodes in the series, this one alternates between dramatization, using actors as the main characters, and archival footage about the artist's history. We learn that he was born Keith John Moon, on August 23, 1946. He dropped out of school and, inspired by Gene Krupa, he got hooked on drums. He joined The Who, the group by which he became famous, on April, 1964, when he was seventeen-years old. Events that molded and affected his life, such as his failed marriage, fatherhood, an accident in which a dear friend was killed, life in Los Angeles, and more are also detailed. And, of course, there are the drugs and booze.

Keith Moon's last 24 hours began in London, on September 6, 1978. He and his girlfriend were staying in an apartment where, coincidentally, Mama Cass Elliot died four years earlier. He was trying very hard to quit alcoholism, using the drug Heminevrin. Apparently, he didn't feel like going out that night, as to avoid any temptations. However, he was invited to a party by Paul McCartney, and he was struggling about attending it. Against his best judgment, he and his girlfriend decided to go, not without snorting cocaine before leaving. He was well-loved by people and was always the life of the party.
