SuperBowl halftime show: The Who
Despite an erratic sound mix (Pete Townshend's backing vocals drowned out Roger Daltrey a few times, esp. "Pinball Wizard"; the drums and other backing vox were too low in the mix), I thought The Who's current incarnation did an admirable job with their medley on Sunday. They sure played a lot more of "Baba O'Riley" than I expected. I totally dug the cool lighting, outfits and Zak Starkey's union jack symbols. This was the most watched SuperBowl ever, so the British vets should see a major boost to catalog sales on the Billboard 200 album chart.
