August 12, 2012 Mike Rutherford Makes a Surprise
Appearance with Nick Mason at the 2012 Closing Olympic Ceremonies
While the rumors of Phil
Collins' participation in the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics in
London were sadly bogus, it was a nice surprise to see Mike Rutherford's
appearance tonight with Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, guitarist Richard
Jones (of the group The Feeling) and A-Team vocalist Ed Sheeran for a
rendition of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here."
The performance was complete with a tightrope walker who crossed the top
of the stadium and ultimately paid homage to the classic Wish You Were
Here Album, complete with a burning dummy!
