Nicknamed “Moon the Loon”, Keith Moon, drummer for the English rock group The Who, is mentioned in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the greatest drummers of all time. Known for his wild public stunts and outlandish behavior (flushing sticks of dynamite down toilet bowls, throwing TVs out of windows, etc) it was no surprise when he decided to paint his Rolls-Royce with Lilac colored house paint.
There are rumors that after a day of partying for his 21st birthday, Keith drove a Cadillac into the swimming pool of a Holiday Inn in Flint, Michigan, thus banning him from staying in all Holiday Inns from that point on. However there’s been some speculation as to whether the car that he drove into the pool was actually his Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Lincoln Continental, or if it even happened at all. Some people believe that he actually released the story just to stir-up the press. Nevertheless, it’s undeniable that the drummer had a thing for fine automobiles…even if only to destroy them.
