September 17, 1967

On this day in 1967, Keith Moon rigged his bass drum to explode at the end of “My Generation” during the band’s performance on CBS-TV’s Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, Moon didn’t realize that the stage crew had already set the charge. The consequence was an explosion that cut Moon’s leg, singed Pete Townshend’s hair, and startled the other guests, Bette Davis and Mickey Rooney.
