MIKE MYERS OVER THE MOON FOR NEW MUSICAL BIOPIC

The lead singer gets all the ladies, the lead guitarist all the praise. But what does the poor drummer get? Pretty soon, the greatest one of all is going to get his very own biopic.
Mike Myers’ long-in-development film on legendary Who drummer Keith Moon is finally nearing the starting gate, the comic told MTV News, excited to step into the shoes of the man he called the best drummer of all time.
“Keith Moon redefined drumming. I mean, there was drumming before him, and then drumming after him,” Myers said of Moon. “His life is just so colorful and fascinating.”
And remarkably, unmistakably depressing, Myers added, calling the script “so sad.”
Moon, the man, of course, died from a drug overdose in 1978 at the relatively young age of 32. But Moon the myth lives on. So what, if anything, is there to learn from his life?
“His name is Moon. And a moon is a non-self-luminous object. It requires sunlight of others in order to be seen. If there’s no sun, the moon is invisible,” Myers said, sounding a little like his new-age Guru Pitka. “And the script so far is about how important it is to be your own star and not be a moon, ironically.
“It becomes a cautionary tale of drugs. They are not the answer and in this movie you see how not the answer they are,” Myers added. “It’s very moving.”
The movie, tentatively titled See Me Feel Me: Keith Moon Naked for Your Pleasure is being produced by Who bandmate Roger Daltrey.
Jeebus -- everybody knows that it's Dana Carvey who's the drummer, not Myers.
