Bored? Have trouble deciding on your next trip? LC sent us this idea, from Budget Travel.
You too can live vicariously through movie and music stars who have more money than sense. This article features ten celebrity-trashed hotel rooms. Visit the Flint, Michigan Holiday Inn where The Who rocker Keith Moon celebrated his 21st birthday, complete with a food fight, a fire extinguisher fight, driving a Lincoln Continental into the pool, and finally slipping on a piece of marzipan and knocking out his front teeth. He claimed it claimed the hotel damages amounted to $24,000. (I think that's excluding the Lincoln.) And that's in 1967 dollars. Remember that in 1967 you could buy a new Mustang for about $2000.
Compared with legends like Moon, latter-day celebs like Lindsay Lohan, Amy Winehouse and Courtney Love are so lame.
Each celebrity blurb is accompanied by the link to the hotel the incident happened in, accompanied by the going rate for a room. Just think, you could stay in the same hotel, and if you play your cards right, the same room that Billy Idol destroyed. Of course, you'd have to go to Bangkok for that.
I think Keith Moon won the contest. I'm so proud. After all, he was Talkin' 'bout My Generation.
