The Who at the Super Bowl: Why?

When will yesterday’s rock stars realize that they need to retire gracefully? The horrific spectacle that was the Who at the XLIV Super Bowl should never have happened; they can’t hit the high notes any more (I thought Roger Daltrey was going to stroke out), their “signature moves” were old and tired, and why did the cameras keep focusing on the drummer? Pete Townshend’s white belly…Roger Daltrey’s grimacing face…yuck.

I’m all for free enterprise. I’m sure the payout for the band was large. Even the demographic for the band was appropriate. But please, next time, why not feature an all-star lineup, like you see at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies? Then, it’s not so painfully obvious that some rockers are past their prime!
