This documentary, Keith Moon â€“ Final 24: His Final Hours tells us about the last 24 hours before his death. In case you donâ€™t know who Keith Moon is, he was the drummer for the band, The Who.
Moon was on medication to curb his appetite for alcohol. What he took was legal which he had a prescription for. He had been invited to attend a party by Paul McCartney to celebrate the upcoming premiere of the new film The Buddy Holly Story. Even though everyone was going to be there, Moon declined the invitation because he was worried about being on the medication and not being able to drink at the party.
Keith Moon had another problem as well, unfortunately. He was a cocaine user and a package arrived the afternoon before he died. Once he was high he changed his mind about going to the party so he and his girlfriend, Annette Walter-Lax went. Somewhere along the way he managed to take a few of the pills he was taking to help with his alcohol cravings. The DVD will cover what went on in the next final hours of his life before he died.
It was reported that all his friends at the party noticed Moon wasnâ€™t acting like he normally acted saying he was more withdrawn. Moon was often called by his friends wild-man Moon and described as a non-stop party animal. He was far from acting like the wild man apparently. The DVD will cover what went on the final hours of his life before he died.
Indeed it is a really sad story. This man had a bright future ahead of him. He was one of the most outrageous rockâ€™nâ€™roll performers in the world. In this DVD you will see archival footage, dramatic reenactments and interviews with some of Keithâ€™s family members and from some of his closest friends. Final 24 documented Keithâ€™s final moments. This is not your ordinary biography. It is a psychological detective story attempting to uncover the mystery of why the celebrity died.
