Kim McLagan Killed in Car Accident

Some very sad and shocking news for Austin music fans. Kim McLagan, wife of Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan, was killed yesterday in a two-car accident in eastern Travis County. She was 57.

Prior to her marriage to McLagan, the former London-based fashion model was married to Who drummer Keith Moon from 1966 to 1975. The McLagans moved to Austin from Los Angeles in 1994. More recently, Kim had opened a skincare shop while Ian has been packing them in with a Thursday evening residency at Lucky Lounge with the Bump Band.
