I emailed back saying Keith now resides in Golders Green crematorium, having lived up to the Who’s anthemic line “I hope I die before I get old”,

said Curbishley

If they have a round table, some glasses and candles, we might contact him

  1. Yes this was mentioned on Have I Got News For You. As embarrassing as it is for the organisers it’s also a bit of an insult to The Who really. The fact that thye were asked to play by people who clearly don’t have clue about the band. Oh well gotta laugh I suppose.

    I did find it amusing on HIGNFY that one of the guests (I forget his name but I believe he might be the writer of The IT Crowd and Father Ted) told a story about some footage of The Who performing where Keith was so out of it that he began to fall asleep while playing. A roadie then crawled onto the stage and injected some Amphetemine’s into his heel to wake him back up again. He then perked up a bit and carried on playing.
