Hello 

 

Here is a cool photo of Keith Moon (drummer of the Who) playing what seems to be some sort of Anglo concertina. It seems to be covered in Mother of Toilet Seat.

 

I have cropped out the topless women surrounding him at the party or event.

 

 

Here is a link to see the original photo FYI.

You mean it's the tune that did the trick?  :ph34r:

 

Anyway, would in fact be cool to hear what he's been playing...

The wikipedia page for the Who song "Squeeze Box" references a TV special in which the band would be surrounded by squeezebox instruments and topless women. My guess is that Keith Moon was the ideal candidate for a test run.

However, if I recall the song "Squeeze Box" rightly, you will in fact hear an accordion (and not a concertina of any kind), resp. rather a synth or electronic organ with an "accordion" voice of that time...

Could the tune possibly be "Starry Starry Nipples " ?
