Keith Moon Unable To Attend London Olympics Ceremony
Keith Moon was capable of many things. He could drive cars into swimming pools, destroy hotel rooms in a single night, create havoc whenever needed, and most importantly, play the hell out of a drum kit. One thing our beloved Moonie cannot do, however, is rise from the dead and take part in this year’s London Olympics.
According to the U.K. Sunday Times, the organizers of the 2012 London Olympics approached the Who‘s manager, Bill Curbishley about having Moon play at an Olympics related event called ‘The Symphony of Rock.’ “I emailed back saying Keith now resides in Golders Green crematorium,” Curbishley told the Times, adding that Keith had in fact “lived up to the Who’s anthemic line ‘I hope I die before I get old’.”
Presumably, they’re currently waiting on a return call from Peter Grant about John Bonham‘s availability.
Keith Moon was one of a kind. He passed away on September 7, 1978 but his legacy and utterly unique style remains in the hearts and minds of fans everywhere.
