... so for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics in London the Britt's invite Keith Moon to participate. Yes, that Keith Moon, dead since 1978... and did not in fact invite one Jimmy Page, who as it happens, promoted the London Olympics at the closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics. :rolleyes:


Perhaps organizers thought the 68-year-old Page was dead. After all it was just a month ago that they invited Moon, who’s been dead since 1978, to perform. That request led to one of the all-time great email exchanges. “I emailed back saying Keith now resides in Golders Green crematorium,” manager Bill Curbishley said. “If they have a round table, some glasses and candles, we might contact him.”
