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.

@cbphoto -- You can see the mics underneath the toms in the Tanglewood vid. While blurry, it looks like SM-58's. You can also see the overheads.
Thanks, KamaK! Really enjoying that link. That and the Leeds concert are the bomb.
