In the documentary Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who
, the Pete & Roger confirm that as the band became more popular, Keith's drinking grew into a problem. When he moved to Malibu (c.1976) he didn't contact his bandmates for lengthy periods of time, and Pet & Roger assumed he was snorting cocaine and drinking, hosting legendary parties. When he returned to England, he went on a pharmaceutical to dry himself out (I forget the drug's name), but overdosed on it.
Both Pete & Roger view The Kids Are Alright
as the story of Keith's life, as he died a week after the last concert in the movie.
