Typical Keith Moon humor, pretending to strangle the kitten.
But according to Tony Fletcher, on September 7th, 1978 Keith had killed himself taking too much pills. The night before Keith and Annette had been with Paul and Linda McCartney at a preview of the film, The Buddy Holly Story. His last words would have been: “If you don’t like it, you can fuck off!” After he asked her to cook steak and eggs.
