Addresses NFL Half-Time Performance – Suggests “Real Live Music”
I’m going to have to agree with Carlos Santana on this one. The Super Bowl spectacle is so highly rehearsed and comes off as insincere in its delivery. Last year Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers brought the situation of pre-recorded tracks for the Halftime show to light. How about we support the longevity of authentic musicianship? Is that too much to ask?
Check out the Facebook message posted by Santana earlier today.
Dear NFL/CBS….I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for including me as a part of your Super Bowl entertainment. I do feel compelled to point out to you that the Halftime Show should have included some of the local iconic bands that the World would have loved to see perform. Bands like Metallica, Steve Miller, Journey and yours truly. We would have rocked the Half Time Show and done the SF Bay Area proud. This is just an invitation for you to consider iconic bands as part of your Half Time entertainment. Real live music, real live vocals, and give the audience real live chills.
