…for the English Heritage foundation. Moonie fans have been campaigning for the EH to install one of those blue here-lived-a-great-person plaques at his London residence, but they got shot down. The official response:
Moon died aged only 32, and many of his contemporaries, including other members of The Who such as Pete Townshend, are still living. Further time should be allowed to pass so he can be considered alongside his contemporaries.
Fuckin’ what? Jimi Hendrix already has one, and he died at 27. And he wasn’t even British.
