Gangling, long-faced British drummer Keith Moon had been a member of the Beachcombers before joining The Who in 1964. Like the other members of that fabled hard-rock quartet, Moon made his first film appearances in a handful of rock-concert shorts and features. He inaugurated his brief movie acting career as "The Hot Nun" in Frank Zappa's 200 Motels (1971). Moon went on to play the kinky Uncle Ernie in the 1975 film version of The Who's rock opera Tommy, the campy dress designer in the Mae West disaster Sextette (1976), and J. D. Clover in That'll Be the Day (1974) and Stardust (1975), a brace of musical films inspired by the rise and fall of The Beatles. Keith Moon died of a sedative overdose at the age of 31; his replacement in The Who was Kenny Jones.
