The Who Respond to Criticisms of Super Bowl Performance

 

 

The appearance of ageing rockers The Who at the Super Bowl has garnered a less-than enthusiastic response, and Roger Daltrey has been doing some damage limitation by playing down the performance. Despite agreeing to perform and presumably picking up a hefty paycheck, the singer said he found the event “a little strange.”

 

"It didn't even feel like a concert," Daltrey said. "It's a television show. And what can you do in 12 minutes? I thought it went OK. I understand. It's a TV show. Cameras were everywhere. I was so blinded that I couldn't see. And I really wished the crowd would have gotten into singing the songs with us more. That's how it is in Europe for our soccer matches. I wanted more banter."

 

Considering The Who were isolated in the middle of the field with no fans around them, it’s difficult to see how any banter could have ensued. But Daltrey's musical partner, Pete Townshend, whose belly made an unwelcome TV debut as it flapped out of his shirt on Sunday, disagrees with the assessment. "We were trying to put on a great show," he said. "We had as much fun as we could have."

The WHO is too old and Townshend had been in the news as a child porn sex offender. And you wonder why the crowd was subdued - jeez.

Gee Amanda, you didn't even follow Townshend's case in 2003, did you? If you had, you would have known that Townshend was found to NOT be an offender. Do your homework before you throw stones. You have no idea what you are talking about. Police found nothing on Townshend's computers - they seized all of them - and later found Townshend not to be a predator or danger. You really should look at the facts and pay attention before you accuse people of being something they are not. Shame on you ....
