Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE: The Keith Moon Family Collection

    The letter included in this lot states that Keith purchased and used the toothpick extensively and there are many photographs of him wearing it. On the evening of the 6th September 1978, he and his girlfriend Annette Walter-Lax attended a screening organised by Paul and Linda McCartney for the film 'The Buddy Holly Story'. Photographs taken there clearly show Keith wearing the same toothpick on a chain around his neck. Tragically the next morning Keith passed away and since then the toothpick has remained within his family's care.
