Damon Albarn to possibly direct the London Olympic Ceremony!


My favorite musician could possibly direct the London Olympic Ceremony?! The Olympics is always a highlight of the year for me, but this just kicks it up another notch!

From Pitchfork.com:

The Independent reports that Blur frontman and Gorillaz co-mastermind Damon Albarn is “a leading contender” to become the artistic director of the 2012 Olympics, which is nuts. (Via the Quietus) Reportedly, the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games has begun preliminary discussions with Albarn.

Albarn has some experience with this sort of thing. Along with fellow Gorillaz guy Jamie Hewlett, Albarn did the music and animation for the BBC’s coverage of the Beijing Olympics last summer. But can you imagine what Damon Albarn could do if he had access to vast quantities of fireworks and the entire world’s attention?
