On September 6, 1978, Keith Moon attended a party hosted by Paul McCartney in tribute to Buddy Holly.


At the party, Moon announced his engagement to 28-year old model, Annette Walter-Lax. After the party, Moon and his fiancée went to the apartment owned by Harry Nilsson in which Moon was staying. Unable to wake him the next morning, Walter-Lax called a doctor. Keith Moon died before the ambulance arrived.
