By now you have seen at least a half dozen super bowl half time shows where the featured “performer” was little more than a Weekend at Bernie’s ripoff; McCartney, Mick Jagger, Tom Petty, et. al..
There can only be two types of people who still enjoy these kinds of performances: those who take pills to get a boner and those who don’t.
Sorry, but if blood flows through you veins naturally and without medication then there is no way that these “Artists” can possibly pass for entertainment in the year 2015. I have now witnessed first hand that 1) these musicians are barely – if at all – even alive on stage and 2) so are the Lipitor/Viagra/Cialis crowd that pay ridiculous money to gather and watch them.
I used to get excited about the classic rock legends – I’ve seen (what’s left of) Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Steve Miller band, and now Paul McCartney – but now I realize that some things are better left in the past.
Its downright shocking the kind of prices that the Stones charge for tickets. This goes for many artists.
Sorry, I will just play your greatest hits on youtube. But, surround myself by ancient baby boomers paying 500 a seat to heat another geriatric baby boomer croon out a “hit”? Total farce.
