Thursday 20th June
Doors open at 7:30pm
Peter ‘Dougal’ Butler began working with The Who as a roadie in mid ’67. He became close buddies with the drummer, Keith Moon from 1967 -1977. Dougal then became Moonies personal assistance which they saw each other virtually every day, with even some of the time sharing accommodation in the U.K and U.S.A.
Dougal will be talking about events in Keith’s life, what he was really like and the value of their relationships?
Some other topics will be:
*Keith in the studio and live appearances with The Who.
*Stories with John Bonham, Ringo, Lennon and many others.
*Did he rehearse?
*Drug and alcohol abuse in this later life.
* Places he has lived and some of the people he met.
*Antics he got up to but wouldn’t be able to today.
*Keith Moon film that didn’t happen – but might!
*His car collection
Dougal will be bringing photos and stories of not just Moonie but other drummers and people he meet along the way. Some of them can be pictured in the photos above. Also his bestsellers selling book will be present on the evening.
