Possible Muse/Elton collab for 2012 Olympics

http://www.gigwise.com/news/66135/El...-2012-Olympics

Quote:
Elton John wants to perform with Muse at the Olympics in London next year, according to reports.

The veteran singer is said to be a big fan of the band, who have already been linked to the opening ceremony in 2012.

"Elton has never put on subtle live shows but he wants the Olympic gig to be even more overblown and spectacular than ever,” a source told The Sun.

"He's been a huge fan of Matt Bellamy's band for years and is desperate to collaborate with them.

"A show during the London Olympics will be the ideal opportunity. And with Muse's reputation as one of the best live groups in the world it's bound to be special."

Other artists thought to be performing at the opening or closing ceremony next year include Sir Paul McCartney. The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin turned down the opportunity to perform.
I wonder if there's any truth to this? It was also mentioned in the Sun, so meh, probably not.

Maybe this board isn't the best place to say what I had said earlier about this collab. But it's not gossip if it's true, right??

I hope this isn't happening. Muse themselves don't fit the Olympics imo....and no way with Elton John...I think Damon Albarn or Coldplay should do this....

That's just because Elton is a "fan" of Matt:

Quote:
Interviewer: Do you, do you have a secret shame perhaps? You know, like when you're in Vegas you might be popping along to maybe a Middler and Cher show?

Matt: Uh, actually, uh Elton John invited me to come and watch his gig once and uh, but it was all a bit weird, I met him in the, where is it, in the Q awards and uh, he sort of, he gave me his sort of private room number and, and his E-mail to his hotel, and I felt a little bit uncomfortable I must admit.

Interviewer: So tell us more, tell us more.

Matt: Uh, well no, it was a bit weird. It was like, you know, I think it was kind of like, I wasn't sure if, I think he might have been, sort of hoping I might come to his room and, uh you know, I don't know. A bit, a bit of an edgy one you know. But I, but I think I'll skip that one, put it that way.

Interviewer: So why didn't you go to his room?

Matt: Um, lets just say, um, how can I put this in a politically correct fashion, um, um, I'd, I'd rather play poker. Lets, lets, lets just say that.

I've read that interview before, but it still makes me feel awkward for him.
