Moon Was Out Like A Light


Richard E. Aaron/Redferns

Kieth Moon, the drummer for The Who will go down in rock and roll history as one of the hardest partiers to ever walk the Earth. His pranks and drunken antics are nothing short of legendary although they eventually caught up to him. However, one incident that stands out was at a 1973 show in San Francisco, California. Before the show, Moon was up to his usual ritual of drowning in alcohol and popping pills when he took a handful of horse tranquilizers. This caused him to pass out cold on his drums in the middle of the show. The band did everything to try and wake him with no luck. The ended up dragging him off stage and let a 19-year-old teenager come play the drums for the rest of the set.
