#believeitornot#spookyjams number 2...Famed Drummer of the Who, Keith Moon was in a flat in London's Mayfair district owned by his friend Harry Nilsson. He was borrowing the place after having watched a screening of the Buddy Holly Story, hosted by Paul McCartney. He had some sleeping pills, fell asleep, woke up made a steak had some more sleeping pills and passed away shortly thereafter. The Autopsy revealed he had taken 32 sleeping pills. Keith Moon passed away of an accidental overdose at the age of 32. 4 Years Earlier Cass Eliot was renting the apartment in 1974 and died of a heart attack at age 32...Nilsson was so distressed by both deaths that he listed the apartment, which was purchased by Pete Townshend.
This is the ONLY band about which I can say I accidentally mocked its legendary lead singer. In public. (It's a long story, but in a nutshell, I didn't believe it was him. What would Roger Daltrey be doing in the pissant little city of Rochester, NY?)
This morning's earworm. Pete Townshend will always be my favourite guitar player, particularly during his 70's two bottles of brandy a day era. Incredibly visual/aggressive style. I could watch this on repeat all day.....
