Keith Moon: Final 24 - His Final Hours [DVD] [2008]

MVD Visual has given this installment of the television series Final 24 chronicling the last hours of the life of Keith Moon of the Who a straightforward release on DVD. Keith Moon: Final 24 -- His Final Hours has been given a widescreen transfer to disc, letterboxed at 1.85:1 on conventional televisions and enhanced for 16:9 playback on widescreen monitors. The image is sharp and colorful, and most of the archival footage looks strong while the new material is pristine (though the reenactments sometimes betray their low budgets). The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo and the fidelity is quite good, if not exceptional. The dialogue is in English, with no subtitles or multiple language options included. No bonus materials are included in this release, and Who fans who recorded this when it was initially broadcast may not feel the need to upgrade to this release, but the DVD presents this material as well as anyone could expect.

Keith Moon: Final 24 - His Final Hours
Keith Moon is often cited as the greatest drummer in the history of rock & roll, and he was certainly among the most flamboyant and influential. Moon's fiery, energetic performances with The Who set a new standard for rock drumming that pushed percussion into the forefront, and his legendary enthusiasm for partying, practical jokes and hotel room demolition earned him a reputation as the great wild prankster of British rock. But despite his outsized personality, Moon was in many respects a troubled man who struggled with alcohol and drug addiction before he died in 1978 at the age of 32. Keith Moon: Final 24 -- His Final Hours is an episode of the Canadian television series Final 24 which though interviews, archival footage and dramatic reenactments offers a look at the man behind the rock & roll myth, focusing primarily on the last day of his life and the circumstances that led to his early demise. Keith Moon: Final 24 includes interviews with Moon's daughter Amanda De Wolf, his girlfriend Annette Walter-Lax, personal assistant Peter Butler, and friends and fellow musicians Alice Cooper and Kenny Jones. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
