The Who remain one of the biggest bands in the world today and are one of the biggest rock bands to ever come out of Britain. So in a year when the Olympics will be coming to their native London it seems fitting that one of the bands members has been invited to play at the ceremony. The only problem is that the member in question is no longer alive and actually left this mortal coil way back in 1978.
Planet Rock digital radio station broke the story on their website as follows:-
Research is the key it would seem, unless the person who came up with the idea was cryogenically frozen a a la Austin Powers style and has only just realised that it is no longer the 1960's. Let's hope that his fellow deceased drummer John Bonham of Led Zeppelin isn't their second choice! Keith Moon (pictured above far left) was a crazy, unique character and an excellent drummer. The Muppets character Animal is largely based on Moon's hyperactive stage persona. Unlike Animal, he is longer available for hire, because he is no more and has ceased to be.
