Moon shot

Bill Curbishley, manager of totemic Who drummer Keith Moon, has received an invitation from the London Olympics committee. They want Moon to play at the closing ceremony. 

Curbishley said: “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’. If they have a round table, some glasses and candles, we might contact him.”

    This makes me feel old. After all, I knew Keith Moon was dead. The mistake sounds like it came from a 20something intern at the London Olympics office. It reminds me of the young team at work. They startle me when they reveal they haven’t heard of certain musicians or movies from the 1980s. It works both ways. I’ve heard of Lady Gaga but today’s ‘alternative’ scene passes me by and I’m no doubt deemed a fogey for not knowing about the latest indie bands. As for Mrs Mollington’s grandson’s Death Metal…

    I met a young person today who claimed not to know the Ovaltine song (“We are the Ovaltineys…”) Extraordinary. The decline of civilisation as we know it has reached a tipping point and risen to a new level.

    Any readers who are ignorant of it may find it here:

    Ah, those cut glass accents! So different from the ghastly isthmus accent of today’s heathenish young persons.
