Nearest I’ve got is that he looked straight into my eyes outside the Royal Albert Hall. Although I think he was just tired.

Okay I am so ultra excited. So excited. Ray is there and will be singing ‘Waterloo Sunset’ - he is on after One Direction haha!!!!!! He should have been at the Jubilee concert but was snubbed so I’m glad that the Olympic organisers got it right!
The Who will be near the end and the Clash are in there somewhere; so are Queen and Madness and some more modern acts. YEEEEEEES.
Hahah he is a legend! I’m talking about the kid to his right - his shirt!! He just realised.
This is greatest picture of Ray Davies you will EVER see. Because LOOK AT THOSE KIDS. Only one of them seems to be aware how cool that moment is. The other kids just look like they want some ice cream and to go home. The kid on the left actually looks incredibly uncomfortable. I think the beer in Ray’s hand really ties the whole thing together.
Thanks to my friend Jayne for finding this picture.
