Was it just me or was that half time the flop of all flops? solo February 6, 2006 OMG! They SUCKED! Sooo Bad! I can’t remember a ‘live’ performance by a major/famous band that was done so badly. They’re rendition of ‘Satisfaction’ was sheer butchery. There was a time when women threw their panties at Mick…now they throw ‘Depends’. Give it up, boys. Either give it some effort or give it up! SCSIwuzzy February 6, 2006 And yet Stevie Wonder et al kicked ass for the pre-game. How the NFL, ABC rtc could have have the taste to pick such a good opener, and then put the Stones on for the “Big Show”, I’ll never understand. moseby February 6, 2006 The awfull halftime show coupled with both teams playing like highschoolers made for an evening of heavy sleeping. Rick February 6, 2006 Still, the halftime show wasn’t nearly as embarrassing as the disgraceful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. That went way beyond the bounds of artistic license; it was an insult to the anthem. Paul Mills February 6, 2006 I find almost NO sporting event in which the artist doesn’t go way beyond the bounds of artistic license on the National Anthem. Most of the time I pause the TV for a few minutes, then skip over the Anthem. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the National Anthem but I hate to hear it on the butcher’s block. Oh, and as for Mick Stagger and the Rolling Nasties, at least they didn’t lipsync. I guess that’s why the performance was so bad. Randy February 6, 2006 ::: laughing ::: Yes, please, long sleeves…or at lease longer sleeves. elvis February 6, 2006 OK, OK! Alright already! Before anyone else gets their fruit o’ the loonies in a twist- 1.) If you were expecting polished studio renditions of any Stones tunes then cue up your CD player. 2.) Mick being front guy and all that jazz is only that, a front man. 3.) And anytime you hear a familiar riff and that unmistakable guitar tone then begin singing along, think Keith Richards. Keith is the Stones, not Mick. Patrick February 6, 2006 I never would have thought of this blog as being read by a bunch of Britney & INXS fans. Geez, for a group with a total age of 1,428 years, I thought they did pretty well. They’ve always been an acquired taste, and as someone above said, you either get them or you don’t. But I thought it rocked. How can you not respect Charlie Watts being a human metronome for 50+ years? Or Keef being #1 on the dead pool for that long? And tell me you’ll be moving like Mick when you’re in your 60’s. George February 6, 2006 I thought the performance was good. I did notice those flabby triceps. You are right about the long sleeves. solo February 6, 2006 I don’t care who the “front man” is, Elvis. They sucked! They sounded like a second rate garage band. Worse still, they were butchering their own songs! Mick was off key, sang the wrong words, no tempo. Richards was worse. Fumbling all over his instrument, wrong cords, playing riffs in the wrong key…no timing at all. Each song was a twisted, incoherent cluster f***. The Stones were never ‘top of the line’ technicians with their respective instruments but they used to give a fun and entertaining performance within which you could at least recognize and appreciate the songs they were playing (I saw them live twice in the late 60’s /early 7o’s). Last night, however, was a complete disgrace! And..ditto for that Baptist revival/Motown bastardization of our National Anthem. I know it was in “Motor City’ but, jeeze! You would think that (just once) they might consider presenting an artist who would perform our National Anthem in a manner that the other 90% of America might appreciate! Just a thought. taz February 6, 2006 Bro, I saw the stones in 1989 & they Rocked then; even if I thought they were too old at the time. Now they are just old. McGehee February 6, 2006 “The Stones should have quit in 65.” – Sid Vicious If only they had quit when they were 65. SilverBubble February 6, 2006 Butchering the National Anthem at the Super Bowl is an American tradition. And the Rolling Stones? Lawd… no. epador February 7, 2006 That was definitely a starf*cker performance, the whole 30 seconds I wasted my time watching. I was praying for a blimp to crash through the roof or a Coke machine to expode into a mushroom cloud and put everyone out of their misery. At least his zipper didn’t accidentally fall open. I guess you can’t always get what you want… worldpeace February 11, 2006 I LOVED their performance. You should all be so TALENTED. The Stones, have been around for a LONG time and are excellent at what they do. Which one of you in this group of pathetics, has produced a #1 record? what a bunch of LOSERS!!!
