Kim McLagan, the former British model and wife of former Faces member Ian “Mac” McLagan, was killed in a two-car collision outside Austin. She was 57. Kim was living here with her husband of 28 years, who has become a permanent fixture on the Austin music scene, playing regular gigs with his group, the Bump Band. Prior to marrying McLagan, Kim was married to Who drummer Keith Moon. Michael Corcoran at the Austin American-Statesman has the complete story:
As a teenager, Kim Kerrigan was the toast of swinging London, marrying the Who drummer Keith Moon in 1966 and appearing the next year in the worldwide satellite debut of the Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love” video. She was divorced from Moon in 1975; he died three years later of an accidental drug overdose.
In 1978, she married Ian McLagan in England. Despite her life there amid fashion and rock stars, Kim McLagan seemed just as suited to the peaceful, rural life outside Manor, where the McLagans lived on 15 acres.
She owned K.M. Skincare on Texas 71 in the Alum Creek community between Bastrop and Smithville. She was a licensed aesthetician and worked for several years at Lake Austin Spa.
