Review: Meet the new Who, same as the old Who, at Super Bowl XLIV
As we told you last week, Sean Daly was on the scene in Miami for Super Bowl XLIV, and he offers this take on The Who's CSI-tastic halftime show, and on guitarist Pete Townshend's still-legendary windmills.
During (the Who's) 12-minute Super Bowl gig at Sun Life Stadium Sunday -- a set that started static but grew louder, looser -- the 64-year-old gunslinger busted out that guitar swipe so many times, I thought his arm would sail into the stands.
At the end of Who Are You, one of five songs referenced and riffed, Townshend was windmilling so hard (and putting some nice raw tone into his licks), he could have powered small nations. Not to be outdone, singer Roger Daltrey, 65, whip-cracked his microphone like a lion tamer. The Brits didn't move much, but they weren't dead, either.
