According to the former Rolling Stones member Bill Wyman, the late drummer left his then-girlfriend with bloody scratches on her face after the couple had a fight.
AceShowbiz –Keith Moon reportedly once tossed a cat at his girlfriend Annette Walter-Lax. According to former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, 86, the late Who drummer’s wild antics often happened under the influence of multiple prescription drugs and booze.
“Keith was a wonderful guy but, God he did overindulge. The doctor would come round and give him so much bloody stuff, then three days later Keith would’ve taken it all,” he told Classic Rock. “There’d be Valium 10s, sleeping pills, wake-up pills and speeding pills, and he would just down them all the time. And there’d be champagne in the mornings, with brandy. I used to watch him in disbelief.”
Keith – who tragically met his demise aged 32, in 1978, after suffering an accidental overdose of the prescription drug Heminevrin, prescribed to combat alcoholism – is believed to have gotten into a physical altercation with his partner, which ended with him launching the pussy at her face.
He remembered, “Once I was making a cup of tea in the morning and his lovely Swedish girlfriend [Annette Walter-Lax] came down – I’d heard them fighting upstairs – and she had scratches down each side of her face, with blood. I said, ‘Annette, what happened?’ And she went, ‘Oh, nothing. Keith just threw the cat at me.’ “
Sharing the extreme lengths Keith would go to in a bid to amuse himself, Bill added, “He’d do the maddest things. If he’d be meeting me […] he’d arrive in a full hunting uniform. He’d have been out and hired fox-hunting gear, hat, coat, riding crop, jodhpurs.”
“One time he bought a cemetery in the West Country as a birthday present for [Who bassist] John Entwistle.”
