REMEMBERING KEITH MOON: On this day (September 7th) in 1978, Keith Moon, drummer with The Who, died of a overdose of heminevrin prescribed to combat alcoholism. Moon had attended a party the night before organized by Paul McCartney for the launch of the ‘The Buddy Holly Story’ movie. He played on all The Who albums from their debut, 1965’s My Generation, to 1978’s Who Are You, which was released two weeks before his death.

Happy Birthday: Gloria Gaynor, Buddy Holly, and Margot Chapman.
