This day in HISTOROCK !!
In 1967, enjoying a wild birthday party Keith Moon drummer for The Who drove his Lincoln into a Holiday Inn swimming pool. The party had gotten out of control and the police were called to put an end to the party. Moon, who always tried to avoid the boys in blue, snuck outside and got into the Lincoln and tried to get away. Unfortunately, in his inebriated state he released the handbrake, and began rolling towards the pool. So Keith, figuring there is nothing he can do, just sits back and waits lol. The car crashes through the fence around the pool and into the water !! When Moon came to the surface, he was greeted by a police sergeant holding a gun, but even then Moon tried to run. There had been speculation that this story was just that, a story, but Roger Daltrey put an end to the rumors when he said in an interview "It flaming well did happen, we got the $50,000 bill for it and Keith could have gone to jail for three years."
Keep on ROCKIN !!
