Olympic organizers invite Keith Moon (1946-1978) to perform at the 2012 Games


According to the manager for The Who, officials of the 2012 Olympics in London recently approached him to see if Keith Moon “would be available” to play with the surviving members this summer. Problem just that Moon died from an overdose back in 1978.

“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’,” came the excellent reply.

“If they have a round table, some glasses and candles, we might contact him.”

Obviously going into the WTF-category, RIP Keith Moon.
