Tom Petty halftime shennanigans

Didn't see a thread in B&C about this.

Just watched it now, as I missed the Halftime show originally. Man....pretty sad I love Tom Petty, but he barely made it through two songs without them wheeling him off in a coffin. It reminded me of those movies where the main characters try and pass off a dead guy in a wheelchair with a big hat and glasses as being alive.

That, and the giant phallic flying V into heart intro visuals. Man that made me crack up

The blatantly lip synched chorus to Free Falling was the icing on the stink cake. Not sure about the rest of the band but the guitar player with the Shelby paint job guitar wasn't playing live either.

Anyone else feel differently?

Nope. I thought it was quite lifeless as well.

I'd actually been thinking of going to see him later this spring, but now only if he plays at the end of my street. Otherwise, it's too far to drive for someone whose energy level sort of made me think he might've recently had a stroke.

He was a pretty bad choice. I can think of several younger bands that would´ve actually rocked unlike him.

You're outta your skull!

Hey Jude in particular was really really great.

Paul McCartney was better, but barely. The highlight for me was Drive My Car. Every other song I had heard approximately 17824128461328463963596395 times.

Petty was professional but uninteresting.

I liked it too. I was surprised I knew so many of his songs. And nothing tops 2002. Nothing! lol!
