London: Sir Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney are battling to be the top name at the launch of the Olympic games 2012 in London.
"The 2012 Olympics opening ceremony is going to be spectacular," a news daily quoted an Olympics source as saying.
"It has to be to kick off the event in great British style. Everyone wants to be a part of this historical happening and what is great for us is The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney are interested in playing.
"They both have an outstanding catalogue of hit after hit that everyone across the world knows.
"The Stones and McCartney can easily carry off something of this magnitude on the world stage.
"We`re looking at the American Super Bowl`s half-time show - which they have played at - as the kind of thing we`re going for with the opening ceremony. It would be great to have both but there can only be one headliner.
"It`s going to be difficult but talks have opened and we`ll see what can be worked out," the source added.
