Great moments in a Rock Education - Scot Halpin leaps out of the crowd to drum for the Who in 1973

A great story - told well here on Wikipedia. Keith Moon, having taken enough drugs mixed with alcohol to fuel a lifetime of TAC adverts, collapses on his drums a second time and is carried off-stage 2/3 of the way through the Who's set at the Cow Palace on their USA tour in 1972.

Pete Townsend asks the crowd "can anyone play the drums?" and one guy steps up to help out. The rest is rock history.

Thanks Juliette_B for today's rock lessons!
