London Olympics Trying To Not Pay Musicians?

(Classic Rock) Organisers of the London Olympics are trying to make professional musicians perform for free, using the tired old excuse they should "do it for the exposure."

Management committee Locog are already a laughing stock in rock music quarters after asking whether long-dead Who drummer Keith Moon was available to appear at the event. And they recently drew the ire of live music fans by confirming all acts that play at the opening and closing events in London will be miming.

Corporate Watch say they've seen an email which instructs Locog staff not to spend money on music "across the board."
