Kim McLagan, née Maryse Elizabeth Patricia Kerrigan[1], (born 30 December 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 Patsy Kerrigan (she disliked her other two names) grew up in Malaysia, on her family's rubber plantation, and in various African countries as well.[citation needed] When her family moved back to London she began her modelling career and changed her name to Kim Kerrigan due to having a similar sounding name, as well as closely resembling, Pattie Boyd[2]

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.[citation needed] 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 1978,[3] 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.[4] She is survived by husband Ian McLagan, daughter Amanda (Mandy) Jane Moon DeWolf and granddaughters Jessica and Samantha.
it's so sweet to hear of how much she meant to both men.

Attended convent school.
Went out with mod singer Rod Stewart.

Originally a hairdresser until being told she'd make a good model. Due to looking very simular to model Pattie Boyd she ditched her nickname Patsy and decided to become known as "Kim".

Meets Keith when The Who play the Disc A Go Go in Bournemouth, January 1965.
Keith Moon: - I met her in Bournemouth when I was playing a show. She was 16 and she hung out at the club where we worked, the Disc.
Kim Kerrigan: - I thought he was lovely, big wide eyes, very sweet . . . He was funny, he was lovely, but it wasn't something I was looking for.
Keith Moon: - Sometimes later when I went down to see her, I was on a train and Rod Stewart was on the train. We got chatting and we went to the bar car. It was Rod "The Mod" Stewart in those glorious days and he'd just been working with Long John Baldry. He was playing a lot of small discotheques and pubs, doing the same work we were doing. I said to Rod, "Where are you going?" He said "Bournemouth." "So'm I." So I showed Rod a picture of Kim and he said. "Yeah . . . that's 'er."

Keith takes her to the recording of "Ready Steady Goes Live!" at Wembley Studios on 21st May 1965.
Kim Kerrigan: - That was when Keith introduced me to the pills. I was ready for it. I loved them.

Moves in with Keith's family in Wembley at the start of 1966.
Kim Kerrigan: - It was lovely being part of that family. They were wonderful, absolutely incredible.

Married March 1966 at Willesden Registry Office in Brent, Middlesex, aged 16.
Kim Moon: - It wasn't the way I planned it, but I really, really loved him. I wouldn't have done it otherwise. I was very young, and things were changing. There were different facets to Keith, and other facets were coming out. He wanted to marry me, he wanted to possess me, he loved the idea of us having his baby, but on the other hand, there was all this other . . . This was a very small part of his life. There was everything else opening up. The Who were big. So he was very confused, obviously. I said I didn't want to get married, he was sure he did, but at the same time he had all this confusion. It would manifest itself in the aggression, he would get very frustrated. And also the pills . . .
Keith Moon: - It was my managers' idea to keep the marriage a secret . . . at the time, I didn't care, I just wanted to marry Kim, but my managers and publicist did care about what I did.
Kitty Moon: - It was daft byt Kit Lambert did his nut about the whole affair. When he realised he couldn't persuade Keith not to go through with it, he ordered all of us, family included, to swear a vow of secrecy. His reasoning was Keith was the one who pulled in all the girls and it wouldn't do the group's image any good at all. It was such a shame really because he was our only son and we were so looking forward to the wedding. Looking back I reckon it wouldn't have done any harm for everybody to have known. It would have saved Kim a lot of preoblems. Later on, when the fans found out, she suffered badly. They sent her gravestones and abused her terribly. I still remember the sight of keith chasing one girl and hitting her with a raw egg because he was so angry at what she said to Kim.

Daughter Amanda born 12th July 1966 at Central Middlesex Hospital, London.
Kim Moon: - If we went out together after I had Mandy, if someone talked to me, he'd lose it. We'd go home and he'd start a fight with me. Sometimes, I wouldn't go home with him. I'd get home and he'd be throwing things out of the window, smashing things up.

Moved to a small flat above a car showroom in Highgate Village, and then to a small flat that Keith rented in Chelsea.

Leaves Keith in October 1973.
Kim Moon: - Fortunately he's only here for about six months of the year. The rest of the time he's away touring. If he was here all the time I don't think I could stand it. He'll get up in the morning and decide he's going to be Hitler for the day. And he is Hitler. He dresses up, combs his hair over one eye, pencils on a moustache and walks around talking to everybody in a german accent. I just ignore him. Everybody does. We lead seperate lives under the same roof.
Keith Moon: - I suppose that despite the luxury my wife lives in, me and the fans have not made life very easy. She just couldn't handle fame. It got so bad she even resented pop ... hated it. She didn't want to come to shows, didn't want to talk about music. She even tried to get me to change because she didn't like to see people laughing at me.

Granted a decree nisi in the London Divorce Court, The Strand in April 1975.
Keith Moon: - The pressures on us have been tremendous because of the nature of my work. I have been away from home for long periods. And my wife has been subjected to all kinds of verbal and physical abuse - even having eggs thrown at her.
Annette Walter-Lax: - Keith mentioned to me once that he broker her nose with his head. And I think if you do that to your wife, you can't blame her if she doesn't want to stick around. He wasn't proud of it but, on the other hand, he wasn't exactly shy about talking about it either. So maybe inside, he felt that it was terrible, maybe he needed to talk about it because he regretted it so much.

i believe the picture would have been featured in the 1971/1973 issue of the brentmagazine that keith and his family were featured in.

second image is also a screencap from "keith moon; behind the music"
i think it would have been taken by dougal butler,
