Ooh my god!! Brian Williams just called Pete Townsend Keith Moon. This just in: Moon has been dead for 30 years. #121212concert— ACito (@AConDEMAND) December 13, 2012
The 12/12/12 concert for Hurricane Sandy is taking place tonight and you can still catch the show until midnight livestreaming here. Old rockers and young pop stars alike pitched in. NBC anchor Brian Williams is hosting. Viewers caught a rather embarrassing faux pas from the veteran journalist, who referred to The Who’s Pete Townshend as your “uncle, Keith Moon.”
The Who’s drummer, Moon died in 1978. And now he’s trending on Twitter.
Caution: “Real reporter” at work!
