The guys behind "Jumpin' Jack Flash" apparently didn't jump at the chance to be part of the Olympics closing ceremony.
In fact, the Rolling Stones were just one of several musical acts who were offered a chance to perform at Sunday's big event, but declined, The Guardian reports.
So who else opted out?
Of course, many Bowie fans watching the show probably thought Ziggy Stardust himself was going to be there after he was shown on screen prior to a live sequence that utilized his song "Fashion" as the likes of Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss strutted their stuff in the stadium. But alas, no.
In fact, the attempt by closing ceremony organizers to get Bowie was always an ambitious one seeing how he hasn't toured since 2006.
