Roger Daltrey Has Finished Keith Moon Script

Roger Daltrey is done writing his Keith Moon documentary.

The Who lead singer has been working on the film about the late drummer since 2005.

In a new interview, he said, “I’m driven by this project. It came to me in a dream 30 years ago. I just finished a script, and I’m hoping to do my biopic of Keith within the next couple of years. I want people to get an understanding of him and his life, and the complete genius he was. He had so much talent, that boy, but he became out of control for a lot of reasons. Mostly for lack of discipline. But once the drugs kick in, usually that disappears, doesn’t it?”

Daltrey also talked about who might play Moon saying, “There’s an actor who I’ve seen and when I look at him I go, ‘God, it’s Moon.’ I don’t want to jinx it and say his name. He might be too old, but then again, Keith looked 50 when he died. He was 32, but he looked 54.”

Moon died in 1978 from a drug overdose.

Foo Fighters to Carry On as ‘Different Band’ After Taylor Hawkins’ Death

After drummer Taylor Hawkins passed away last year while on tour, the Foo Fighters announced that they would still exist, although as a “different” band.

The rock group referred to 2022 as “the most difficult and tragic year” they had ever experienced in a statement posted on Instagram over the weekend. In that post, they added, “Without Taylor, we never would have become the band that we were – and without Taylor, we know that we’re going to be a different band going forward.”

Six months after Hawkins’ loss, the Foo Fighters performed at London’s Wembley Stadium in September as part of a star-studded celebration in his honor. Later that month, the Foo Fighters performed a second dedication in Los Angeles.

KISS Announces Final UK Dates

KISS has announced their final ever UK headline dates.

The band will head to Plymouth, Birmingham, Newcastle, London, Manchester and Glasgow next summer to say goodbye to the UK once and for all.

The band released a statement saying, “All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in… Unapologetic and Unstoppable.”

Mötley Crüe Was Biggest Success Story In 2022

A study conducted by ticket marketplace Vivid Seats has calculated the stand-out artists from each genre of music this year, based on “ticket sales and event data.”

The results are that Mötley Crüe have been the biggest success story in rock music this year, most likely thanks to their stadium tour with Def Leppard that finally took place in 2022.

The study also said the defining ‘alternative’ band of 2022 was Gorillaz, while rock’s biggest ‘breakout’ band was Australian indie rockers Spacey Jane.

Dead & Company Announce Dates For Final Tour

It will fittingly wrap with a two-night stand in San Francisco, California, at Oracle Park.
