Goth-rocker Nick Cave stunned revellers at Britain's Glastonbury music festival on Sunday (28Jun09) after he failed to pay tribute to fellow musician Michael Jackson - choosing to dedicate his set to late CHARLIE'S ANGELS star Farrah Fawcett instead.
Hollywood was mourning the death of the blonde siren on Thursday (25Jun09) after she slipped away following a lengthy battle with anal cancer.
But news of her death was quickly overtaken by the sudden passing of pop superstar Michael Jackson, who died from a cardiac arrest just hours after the actress.
As the shocking reports reverberated across the globe, Glastonbury organisers insisted the weekend music bash would be dedicated to Jackson.
But there was one rocker at the event who failed to remember the pop icon - Nick Cave confused the crowd at his set by paying tribute to Fawcett, and totally forgetting to mention the Thriller hitmaker.
As he took the mic on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage, he told fans, "We'd like to dedicate this set to the late, great... Farrah Fawcett."

2 Icons in 1 day! Thank You for standing up for your dedication to Beautiful Farrah! The media appeared to forget about the millions that cared about Farrah. I think they could have continued to also give Tribute to Farrah as well!!! God Bless both families and friends today and the days ahead. This is such devastating circumstances for both families!!!

If he was going to dedicate the set to a musician that died the same day as MJ and Farrah he could have dedicated it to Sky Saxon.
