Keith Moon was an English drummer for the rock music band The Who. Noted for his unique style, alcohol addiction and his eccentric, often self-destructive behaviour, Moon developed a reputation for smashing his kit on stage and destroying hotel rooms on tour. His drumming continues to be praised by critics and musicians to this day. Moon was voted the second-greatest drummer in history by Rolling Stone. By 1976, and particularly during production of The Kids Are Alright and “Who Are You,” Moon’s deterioration grew. He died on September 7, 1978, aged 32, from an overdose of Clomethiazole, a drug intended to treat or prevent symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.
