    On the seventh day, the gods of destruction gave us Keith Moon. The Who's late drummer was banned from the Waldorf Astoria as well as all Holiday Inn, Sheraton and Hilton Hotels for making a habit of flushing explosives down toilets. Moon was also known for throwing televisions into pools, and became a legend in hotel-trashing when he drove a Cadillac into a Flint, Michigan Holiday Inn's pool on his 21st birthday. Top that.

    A San Francisco theater is asking for donations of unwanted tube  TVs that will be smashed as part of an upcoming show about the life of the legendary drummer of the band The Who.
        
    Anyone with old-fashioned and unwanted -- but still fully  functional -- television sets are asked to bring them to the Eureka Theatre until 8 p.m. Wednesday

    Donated TVs will be used in the show "Keith Moon: The Real Me" about the famously destructive drummer. Anyone who drops off a TV will be  given two free tickets to see the show.

    Actor, author and musician Mick Berry, who is portraying Moon,  will destroy the TVs during the one-man show, according to theater officials.

    Those with TVs to contribute are asked to email pamcoatestl@gmail.com to schedule a drop-off at the theater, located at 215  Jackson St.

    The show debuts on July 10. Tickets cost $40 and are available by  calling (800) 838-3006 or visiting www.keithmoontherealme.com.
