“Keith Moon: The Real Me” explodes on the stage with the turmoil and excitement of the wildest drummer in rock and roll. A living legend during his lifetime, Keith Moon still stands as the pinnacle of rock-star extremism—both in life and music. The play explores the mind of Keith Moon, as he attempts to save himself from the unbearable burden of living up (or down) to his self-created legend of ‘Moon the Loon'. As Keith attempts to save himself, he takes the audience on a journey through his early struggles, his joining The Who, and their rise as one of the world’s greatest rock bands. By the show’s end, the audience intimately knows the man behind the myth—his acute vulnerability and insecurity, and his struggle to escape the ever-looming rock and roll crash landing.

"What happens when the tribute band phenomenon combines with the Fringe? You get an amazing solo show about Keith Moon, long-time drummer for The Who. Mick Berry is brilliant in his portrayal of this legend, walking, talking and truly playing the part as he beats his drums to a soundtrack of the best songs from The Who. He tells his story and pulls you into it, separating the myth from the truth, and leaving you with a better understanding of this oft-misunderstood rock legend. Don’t forget your earplugs, because this one is loud!"
