I cleaned up this vid to better synch audio...
Sometime during the show, Keith Moon downs a mixture of horse tranquilizers and brandy. Evidently mumbling something to the effect of "I can take it, I am Keith "Effing" Moon.
It goes downhill from there.
Here are the highlights:
November 20, 1973. The Cow Palace in California. The Who are 70 minutes into a show on the Quadrophenia tour:
The video begins with The Who hammering out "Wont Get Fooled Again"
At 0:09 Keith's drums come to a weak stop in the middle of the song.
At 1:10 Pete tells the crowd that Keith Moon has passed out
At 2:40 Keith Moon manages to wake up and come back on stage.
At 3:50 Moon passes out again and the roadies carry him off the drum set. This time he is not coming back.
At 5:00 Pete tells the audience Keith is finished for the night.
At 5:27 Pete asks the audience if there is anyone who can play the drums.
At 6:30 THE DREAM COMES TRUE FOR SOME DUDE IN THE AUDIENCE NAMED SCOTT HALPIN.
