Bowie to form "greatest supergroup of all time" [re: ]  

Rock icons MICK JAGGER, DAVID BOWIE and ELTON JOHN are reportedly set to form a supergroup - to play at the London Olympics in 2012.

The Rolling Stones are slated to perform at the opening ceremony of the games - and Jagger is said to be keen to include other members of the rock aristocracy.

He wants to be joined on stage by Bowie and John, as well as Phil Collins, Sting, Van Morrison, Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour, and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.

The concert would be trumpeted as featuring the greatest rock "supergroup" of all time.

A source tells Britain's News of the World newspaper, "Mick feels the Olympics coming to London is a huge honour - and wants to make his own gesture with the band. It's early stages but Page, Bowie, and Morrison are already involved, although no-one is quite sure yet how the show will play out in its entirety.

"The Olympics people hope to use the template of the American football Super Bowl half-time show, where an artist takes over the field on a giant stage. Having the Stones on side for a project like this is a huge deal."

Not sure it can be bigger and better than the Wembly Live Aid finale.

And the best thing about that one was that Phil Collins was in the States by then

my face is finished, my body's gone and i can't help but think,
standin' up here in all this applause and gazin' down at all the young and the beautiful with their questioning eyes,
that i must above all things love myself

It might be good but realistically, this seems like an exercise in raising zombies from their grave (I mean, Collins, retired six years ago for Christ sake - let him die).

My guess is the source is wrong, and Bowie's only "involvement" is that his name got mentioned. He can't be bothered to go all the way to London to sing a song; if the Olympics were in New York City, I could maybe see him popping in to go "ooooh", but only if he couldn't find anything good on TV.

Non importa quanto si aspetta,ma chi si aspetta.

My first reaction to this was negative. I don't think I want to see him with a bunch of older generation rock stars trying to stay relevant on stage at a major event. I want him to do something by himself to try and stay relevant. This reeks of cheesyness.

Blammo's confirmed it as old cobblers.

We'll have to see if BNet news reports it as such. I don't blame them if they don't (otherwise it's becoming a full time service just to keep denying these UK Sunday newspaper inventions).

Thank God. It would be much better if Bowie projected himself as a 3 dimensional hologram, to lots of different theatres or stages around the world.
