When Keith Moon, the legendary drummer for the British rock band The Who, died in 1978, it was too much for some people to accept. Apparently that includes the organizers for the 2012 Olympics in London. According to the manager for The Who, officials requested Moon’s presence during an upcoming performance:
The band’s manager, Bill Curbishley, told the Sunday Times he had been approached to see if Moon “would be available” to play with the surviving members this summer.
“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.”
