THE WHO rocker ROGER DALTREY has slammed biographers who claim the story of his bandmate KEITH MOON driving a car into a swimming pool is a myth - insisting it really happened.

The incident, reported to have taken place at the Holiday Inn in Flint, Michigan on Moon's 21st birthday in 1967 - has been widely dismissed as rock folklore.

But Daltrey insists, "It flaming well did happen. We got the $50,000 bill for it.

"He could have gone to jail for three years. This was Right-wing America in the Sixties. They just didn't like us long-haired hippies.

"People write books and never talk to the band. They just talk to drunks and people who were half there."
