The London 2012 Olympics are less than a year away and the International Olympic Committee says some of England’s most iconic artists ever will not be a part of the opening ceremonies. 

Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones and the remaining members of Led Zeppelin have all been asked to take part in the opening ceremonies at the London 2012 Olympics and all but McCartney have said no thanks.

Officials told the UK’s Daily Mirror that they were trying to stage a performance with some of England’s most iconic classic rockers, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. McCartney says he would be up for it, but Ringo is going on tour, the Stones are said to have passed on the offer and it sounds like Robert Plant was the lone holdout for the Zeppelin reunion.

McCartney is reportedly number one on the list saying that he’s a great showman and would get the event off on an excellent note, but even his participation is unconfirmed.

Opening ceremonies are set for July 27, 2012.
