Keith Moon at 60

My thanks to iJamming! Pub landlady Shona for toasting Keith Moon on what would have been his 60th birthday, yesterday, August 23. You can read her announcement and offer your own response here.

For my part, I have to concur with Dear Boy’s editor Chris Charlesworth and say that I can’t contemplate a 60-year old Keith Moon. And to repeat that, during my research into the biography ten years ago, the only person who could visualize a Keith Moon of that age was the equally hard-living Oliver Reed – who himself passed away after a monumental drinking binge.

Other than that, a slightly belated happy birthday to a man who played a greater role in my own life than he would ever have known.

    Actually I had a dream last year where Keith was about the age he would have been….
    I dreamed that I was working in a photo lab….the project was to use a computer to ‘age’ a photo of Keith from the 60’s. Keith stopped by to watch the proceedings. He looked at the photo we were working on, said he couldn’t remember what show it was…he was chubby…but he was happy, he was smiling, joking around and being cute and he was 100% sober. He had crows feet around his eyes from smiling all the time. His smile was just as beautiful …. he had dyed his hair dark brown and the grey roots were showing. I was hugging him and we were laughing about his two tone hair. He was truly happy and at peace with being Keith Moon. Needless to say, I woke up with a smile that morning. :O)
