Keith Moon was one of the most outrageous rock and roll performers in the world. He was a drumming genius, but his talents were overshadowed by his wild-man ways.

As the genius drummer for The Who, wild-man Moon was a non-stop party animal. When it comes to self destruction Moon was the rock poster boy.

Featuring archival footage, dramatic reenactments, and interviews with his family and closest companions, this film documents the final moments of this rock star's life.

Moon was known for dramatic, suspenseful drumming - often eschewing basic back beats for a fluid, busy technique focused on fast, cascading rolls across the toms, ambidextrous double bass drum work and wild cymbal crashes and washes.

He is mentioned in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the greatest of all rock and roll drummers, and was posthumously inducted into the Rock Hall as a member of The Who.
