The Super Bowl is as American an event as you can get. It practically oozes stars and stripes and I’m afraid to say no one else in the world really gives a crap about it. However, the Super Bowl was invaded by the Brits yesterday, as The Who played the halftime show.
This video is, unfortunately, only half the show but look hard enough on YouTube and you’ll find the rest. This does give a good flavor of the set however, which took the form of a medley of The Who’s greatest hits.
The Who now comprise Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, with Zak Starkey on drums. Starkey is Ringo Starr’s son and was taught to play the drums by both his dad and former Who sticksman Keith Moon.
American football may be one of the dullest sports in the world but at least the halftime show at the Super Bowl was entertaining.
