ShortList's '20 Greatest Rock Moments' was a hilarious start to the day

Today's ShortList has got a fantastic feature on the 20 Greatest Rock Moments. Sid Vicious, Ozzy Osborne and Nikki Sixx feature their classic escapades (as expected). Also worthy of note are Kurt Cobain's Reading festival appearance and Robert Smith's naked tennis.

But Keith Moon's story had be laughing out loud on the tube:

"The Who's drummer of DIY demolition eventually burst onto the small screen on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in 1967, when he filled his bass drum with explosives in order to end My Generation with a bang. The detonation was far bigger than anticipated though: Moon caught a piece of cymbal shrapnel in his arm and Pete Townshend suffers tinnitus, supposedly from the explosion, to this day."
