Goodnight Keith Moon

(YouTube Link)

Goodnight Keith Moon is a parody of the classic children's picture book Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. This version by Bruce Worden and Clare Cross features Keith Moon (1946-1978), drummer for The Who.

The humor is pretty dark, so readers who don't wish to have haunting memories Goodnight Moon should probably skip this one.

Very sad, Keith Moon was an exceptional drummer and a well known drug and alcohol abuser. I used to have a copy of the book"Full Moon" which was written by his chauffeur/babysitter and it chronicles a wasted life of excess. Booze, drugs, wrecked cars, trashed hotel rooms, it just goes on and on. It's a shame no one tried to stop all this. Where were his band mates? Why didn't someone try to get him help? Now, all we're left with is a handful of great albums and a premature death because no one said no to this out of control guy. I've been a Who fan since their first album and, when Keith died, so did the Who. Keith Moon was an exceptional drummer and a major part of the band's sound. What a waste. Goodnight Keith Moon. It's sad you didn't stick around longer.

I read the original book regularly to my kids, but this one is much better : I see now the gloom and weirdness of the original with a logical dark explanation to it.
