Profile Bio Text
Kim McLagan, née Clotilde Elizabeth Patricia Kerrigan, (born 30 December 30 1948 in Leicester, England; died 2 August 2006 in Travis County, Texas) was a model during the 1960s; she later became a cosmetologist. She was Keith Moon`s wife from 1966 until 1975, although they separated in 1973.
Young Patti Kerrigan - she disliked her other two names - grew up in Malaysia, on her family`s rubber plantation, and in various African countries as well. When her family moved back to London she began her modelling career and changed her name to Kim Kerrigan after a friend of hers named Kim Rupert.
She met Keith Moon - drummer with The Who - at a concert in Bournemouth. The couple married in March 1966 after Kim became pregnant. Their daughter Amanda Jane (Mandy) was born four months later. The marriage was very turbulent; Moon forced Kerrigan to give up her modelling career and was often violently abusive towards her, breaking her nose three times, throwing objects such as broken bottles at her and even chasing Kerrigan around their large house with a shotgun as if it were a game. She left him in 1973, tired of the situation. She took Mandy with her to live in Ian McLagan`s house - with whom she was having an affair - and divorced Moon in 1975, who had been dating Annette Walter-Lax since 1974.
Kerrigan married McLagan - former keyboard player for the Faces - on 9 October 9 1978, one month after Moon`s death. The couple moved to Texas in 1994. Kim McLagan worked for several years at a spa resort on Lake Austin before opening her own skin care salon on Highway 71 between Bastrop and Smithville, Texas. She died on 2 August 2006 in a traffic accident in Travis County, Texas, aged 57. Her car was hit by a truck and she was pronounced dead at the scene. She is survived by husband Ian McLagan, daughter Amanda (Mandy) Jane Moon DeWolf and grandaughters Jessica and Samantha.
