Whether or not Keith Moon drove a Rolls-Royce, a Chrysler Wimbledon or indeed any other car into a swimming pool, and whether or not the pool had water in it at the time, does not really matter. It was a symbolic statement of rock’n’roll excess, and Bonehead was right – it was a great basis for an album cover.

The original number plate on the Rolls Royce, MDH 119K was changed to SYO 724F. This was the number plate featured on the police van on the cover of Abbey Road; another nod to rock ‘n’ roll cultural history.
