Who Drummer Keith Moon Asked To Perform At Olympics Ceremony -- 34 Years After His De

The Who sang "Won't Get Fooled Again," but apparently organizers of this summer's London Olympics didn't get the memo.

Recently, they approached The Who's manager, Bill Curbishley, to see if the group's legendary bad boy drummer Keith Moon would be available to perform.

Problem is, Moon died in 1978 from an accidental overdose of prescription medicine.

Curbishley said he made sure to answer the request in a timely fashion.

"I emailed back saying Keith now resides in Golders Green crematorium, having lived up to The Who's anthemic line 'I hope I die before I get old,'" Curbishley told Metro.co.uk. "If they have a round table, some glasses and candles, we might contact him."

There was speculation last year The Who would be performing, but nothing has been confirmed, Spinner reported.

Considering Moon's current state, it's unlikely he would show, but Buzz60 correspondent Gillian Pennsavalle wonders if the Olympics organizers are exploring other options.

"What's next?" she asked. "Asking John Lennon to perform?"

The incompetancy of these idiots knows no bounds.
However, having recently contacted the afterlife Moonie and Entwistle said they would do it but are sure the other two are well past it.

The organisers must have been living ON the moon if they didn't know he was dead.

ok, racial equality time. if keith moon is gonna perform there, then they better ask jimi hendrix also. (originally, they were going to ask jim morrison but decided against it because everyone knows jim morrison uses illegal drugs.)

Maybe Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin can do a duet, too!

I thought Moon did, too. I'm not even a Who fan and I knew Moon was dead. I remember him dressed as a nun and passing out while a fan filled in for him one time at a concert.

To quote The Righteous Brothers, "If there's a Rock & Roll Heaven, you know they have one Hell of a band!"

Jimi Hendrix is always a wise choice.

Kurt Cobain asked if he could perform but they told him to fuck off because he was overrated.
