    Maybe they should rename themselves "The Grateful (for a gig) Half-Dead"...LOL!

    Why does there have to be a band at all at halftime? How about something related to sports.

    Punt, pass and kick finals? Gladiators? Lingerie bowl?
    I don't know about a punt, pass, kick finals or Gladiators . . . but . . . tell me more about this lingerie bowl idea. :shock:

    I thought the show was just average, nothing too great but they are still The Rolling Stones.

    You could even have Kid rock and Seger up there at the same time. On KR's last album, he recorded a song "Hard Night for Sarah" that Seger wrote, but never recorded. Of course, that particular song would have been a bit of a downer for the superbowl, but their styles do match up suprisingly well.

    That was the Rolling Stones. I thought it was the California Rasins.

    While I openly admit that I've never been a Stones fan..and by that I mean that I own none of their albums/CDs, nor do I ever intend to...I have always been able to gloss over their seemingly inept handling of any and all things remotely related to music and tolerate listening to a handful of what I laughingly call songs.

    Then came last Sunday.

    In my ENTIRE life, I have witnessed a mere handful of performances that I would consider to be worse than the one I was "treated" to at halftime. Of course, to be fair, the vast majority of them involve junior high school bands...with the other 2 I can recall being put in by bar bands who made up for their lack of ability by also displaying a complete lack of caring that they sucked.

    Charlie Watts looked - as he always does - like a marionette...barely managing to keep time, and occassionally throwing in a half hearted attempt to hit something other than the snare drum. And, to me, that was the HIGHLIGHT of their performance.

    Mick Jagger, lacking any sense of rythm, showed why the commonly held belief that white people can't dance exists. Anyone clapping along (Although I fail to see why they would) and watching Mick would certainly wind up melting their brain with the effort...much like patting your head and rubbing your tummy. Of course, melting your brain might explain why they have a fan base.

    And speaking of "melted brains", Keith Richards and Ron Wood looked like something from a "Living Dead" movie. And while I could occassionally recognize a chord or two, for the most part they simply appeared to be striking strings at random while moving their hands in a movie-star parody of guitar playing. These two are to guitar playing what Micheal Jordan is to Baseball.

    Their replacement bass player might actually be good...I couldn't tell...but it stands to reason that there is no way in Hades that these guys actually want someone in the band who can play. It would simply underscore their own inability.

    Now, at first I thought that they were suffering sound problems due to the location...and a poor TV feed. Kind of like every band on SNL suffers weekly. But, as the "show" wore on, I became convinced that any "technical issues" being suffered weren't detracting from the performance, rather they were like a mercy killing of a critically injured family pet who is clinging to life by a thread but suffering horribly.

    Now, I'm sure that a few die-hard Stones fan will post here and - oh so politely - tell me how wrong I am. Feel free. To me, the only thing worse than the Stone's "performance" was the officiating...and THAT was horrible.

    I am a Stones fan, have always been, and they're definitely top 3 in my all-time bands list. But I agree with you that their performance at the Super Bowl was pretty terrible. Let me try to explain:
    1) the acoustics at Ford Field are pretty terrible, and you could tell
    2) With only a 3 song set, they weren't really given a chance to get rocking
    3) they chose a really bad song - the new one in the middle (Rough Justice?)

    Having said that, they rocked A LOT better than my, or most, grandparents can, and for doing what they did for 50 years, I give them credit. They certainly aren't the band they once were, but the fact that they are still out there 50 years later doing what they can is surely worth something.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    Their show a few years back worked well and of course Britney Spears was soft on the eyes too.

    The Stones were pathetic at half-time. I've seen them live a few times over 20 years ago and enjoyed the show then. The lingerie bowl is consuming my halftime next year.

    I watched the lingerie bowl the first year it was on, but the past two Superbowls I have been in groups that included women so the lingerie bowl wasn't politically correct at halftime.

    I was impressed that the girls played so hard. LT was one of the coaches and it was like red underwear against white.

    Too bad it's not tops vs. bottoms :razz:
