Keith Moon is a legend. Every drummer worth his salt knows this. He had a style and talent that is unique and all his own. There have been many great drummers both before and after Keith, but besides being great, he was the drummer for The Who. That alone would be enough to warrant a movie about his life. But Keith’s story is so much bigger than even that. Everyone who knew him speaks with such reverence about his extremes. He was very funny, spontaneous, frustrating and juvenile, and an overall extremist. He lived such a full life despite the fact that it was cut short at the age of 32.
That is why when I heard that Roger Daltrey was producing a biopic of Keith’s life I was incredibly excited. This is a project that should have been made years ago. I had my hopes set very high for this movie. I feel that if anyone can put together a high quality, true portrayal of Keith’s life, it would be Roger. And Mike Myers was to play Keith! It was going to be perfect!
Unfortunately, I just read that this project has recently stalled. Why oh why!?!? Well I just feel that this is unacceptable! I cannot sit on my hands and do nothing when the best opportunity for such an important film goes belly up. With this in mind, I have created a petition to send to the film’s production team to let them know that, we the people will not be denied this valuable historical production. I ask you to please take a moment to sign the petition to get this project back on track. If they see enough names, perhaps it will help find the needed reserves to get this thing back on track.
