September 7th 1978 we lost one of the original madmen of Rock N’ Roll, Keith Moon.

Keith was the ball of energy behind the drum kit for The Who.

He was notorious for destruction of hotel rooms.

His use and abuse of alcohol and other substances is a thing of legend.

I guess it was no surprise that he passed shortly after his 32nd birthday.

We do not celebrate him for the actions that took his life though.

We remember keith as drummer for a world class band.

Keith was a showman with a great sense of humor.
