Yes, I did – watch the closing ceremony of the London Olympics, that is. I think our American cousins will have been less puzzled with this evening’s offerings than they were with the opening ceremony but, still, there were some strange, quirky things in there. Personally, I was hoping that the organisers had somehow managed to convince David Bowie (whose music was much in evidence at both ceremonies) out of his self-imposed seclusion – particularly since there are growing rumours about a re-appearance this autumn in connection with the forthcoming Bowie: Object (see here). But it was not to be. On the other hand, John Lennon was resurrected, the Spice Girls reformed for one show and there were at least three covers before ageing rockers Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend performed a few of The Who’s greatest hits. As the feel-good buzz slowly diminishes, the burning question on these lips is: where was Elton?
