Sep 7 1978

Keith Moon, drummer for The Who, dies in his London residence from an overdose of chlormethiazole edisylate, a prescription drug used to treat alcoholism. Moon's flat, #12 Curzon Place, was the same spot where Mama Cass died of a heart attack in 1974.

Sep 7 1996

Standing up through the open sunroof of a BMW 750 sedan, rap artist Tupac Shakur is talking to some women at a Las Vegas street intersection when a white Cadillac pulls alongside. Gunfire erupts, and Shakur is shot four times. He dies in the hospital a week later.

Keith Moon, dead thirty years now. What a maniac, while I sit here listening to him drumming in "I Can See for Miles". Wonder who lives at #12 Curzon Place now?

I've always wondered why a musician is always "more admired" after his death.

Jimmy Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan sold more records after they were dead, than when they were alive...

It's a good career move, Bucket. I'll bet Elvis has sold more records dead than alive but I'm guessing. Besides, Jimi was unique and he's been dead a lot longer than he lived now.

You never see Jimi or Jim Morrison get old and faded, they're forever young and stoned!
