One of the most iconic, zany and wild drummers of all time .I saw him with The Who doing Tommy back in the day. Nobody ever played the drums like Keith Moon .He was entertaining enough watch during the whole show. Of course this was impossible with the combined talent of Pete Townsend, John Entwhistle and Roger Daltry on stage at the same time. He was almost indescribable. He was a once in a life time person in history that lived too fast and died too young. Sad but honest account of the final days of a legend.

I think the producers should have taken a more detailed aproach about the year he did spend in California and how he began to fisically decline. Also, missin is a perspective of his decline as a musician during the recording of the By Numbers and Who are You and his solo album,

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.

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...

You'll have to endure many segments of dramatizations in this one-hour look at the rock star's final moments. It's a bit mis-titled because it actually ranges over his final 10 years, albeit giving it all shortshrift due to the brief running time. There is almost no audio of Moon himself, but there are numerous short video clips. There's no music either, no doubt due to licensing costs. In all, a fairly cheesy bit of a product, though it does feature the recollections of Moon's girlfriend who was with him when he died, ironically, of an overdose of a medication aimed at preventing him from getting drunk. It seems he couldn't help taking too much of even that. I was never much of a fan of his drumming, which like his personality, was way too over the top. For true fans only.
