6.19 Reading for pleasure - Keith Moon, Clown Prince of Rock
managers all over the world became very nervous when they heard that the English rock group "The Who" were coming to stay.
Keith Moon, the pop groups wild-eyed
drummer, had a reputation for destroying hotel rooms!
Once he put a small bomb in the toilet in an American hotel room - the explosion made a huge hole in the bathroom floor. One day a hotel manager telephoned to his room to complain that the music was too loud - Keith threw the television out of the window. For ten years Keith Moon wrecked hotel rooms in America, Europe and the Far East. His extraordinary behaviour cost him between £150 000 and £200 000 in damages.
|Why did he do it? "When I come off the
stage, the momentum is still there. Im like an express train or a big liner. I need two or three miles to stop".
Actor Steve McQueen was his next-door neighbour in Malibu and was very angry when
Keith regularly drove his large motorbike over the film stars lawn.
Keith Moon spent money as fast as he earned it. He spent his money on clothes, cars and having fun. He was also a heavy drinker. He often drank two bottles of brandy and two bottles of champagne a day.
One night Keith was eating in "Tramps", a fashionable London night club, when he saw a beautiful, blonde Swedish girl sitting at a nearby table. He fell in love immediately. He called a waiter, and gave him a large tip and asked him to tell the girls boyfriend that there was a telephone call for him. Then Keith went to the girls table and introduced himself. The girls name was Annette Walter-Lax and she fell in love with Keith and went to live with him in California.
and Beatle Ringo Starr tried to help Keith to stop
drinking so much, but it was a very difficult job.
One night in 1978 he went to a party. He was very quiet, he spent most of the time talking about music with Beatle Paul McCartney. He told Paul that he and Annette planned to get married.
Next morning, he was found dead in his bed.
