This day Music History October 21: The Who
Oct 21, 2017

Written by Evan Frye

Keith Moon played his last show with The Who on October 21 1976. The drummer was revolutionary in his playing and a bit of a mad man. He liked to play pranks on people with firecrackers and other explosives. On a TV appearance, he added additional pyrotechnic material to his kick drum, and the resulting explosion left Pete Townshend partially deaf in one ear.
