In 2012. organizers of the London Olympics approached The Who’s manager to inquire about having Keith Moon play at an Olympics event, despite the famous drummer being dead for nearly 34 years.

“I emailed back saying Keith now resides in Golders Green crematorium, having lived up to the Who’s legendary line ‘I hope I die before I get old’,” the band’s longtime manager, Bill Curbishley, told the Times. “If they have a round table, some glasses and candles, we might contact him.”

Moon died in 1978 at the age of 32 from an accidental overdose. The Olympics organizers wanted the late great drummer to take part in the Symphony of Rock, a celebration of British pop culture that was to be a part of the closing ceremony of 2012 Olympic games.
