The International Olympic Committee has a little bit of egg on their faces after asking a drummer who has been dead for years to come and play at the London Olympics. 

Someone needs to check their musical history books.

The Who manager Bill Curbishley is telling the Sunday Times that he recently got a request for late drummer Keith Moon to come and play the 2012 London Olympics. He says the request asked that Keith play as part of a Symphony of Rock segment during the closing ceremonies. Whoopsies. Bill says that he sent an email back saying that Keith now lives in a crematorium and if we wanted to get a hold of him and ask him if he’d like to play the closing ceremonies, you’d need a seance to do it. Keith Moon died in 1978 at the age of 32.

A number of British music superstars have been asked to take part in the Olympic Ceremonies, however no one has been confirmed. The ever growing list of rumored performers include: Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones and The Who.
