Last Thursday marked the 39th anniversary of the death of Keith Moon, one of the greatest drummers of all time and one of the craziest rock ‘n roll stars who ever sat behind a drum set. There’s lots of Keith Moon tales floating out there in the interwebs and below are a half a dozen of them. And then there’s the MBIP Coming Attractions for next week.
