They are hardly the first act to do that and won't be the last. It is a big opportunity for any act with lots of exposure and sales leading up to and after the game. It is not like these guys fake all the time or there is any doubt of that. Not trying to fake is fine by me. Would be funny if they all switched intruments and snuck it by the producers.

Axl being critical of anyone is a joke. He would have shown up at 1 AM if he was playing. His own ego cost him and others countless millions and a band that could have been known for a long career with many releases.

Screw Axl.

...and hypocritical. It's not like GNR hasn't done a music video where they've mimed their instruments w/o being plugged in. (November Rain comes to mind.) I don't see any difference with what the RHCP did at the Super Bowl, although it was "live". But they weren't hiding anything with the instruments unplugged, any more than Slash was hiding anything playing his guitar in the desert in front of an old church house. Had Flea and the guitarist plugged in and really faked it, that would be more of a story than what they did. I actually respect them for doing the Super Bowl "gig" w/o their instruments plugged in.

It is always done like this at Superbowls both at halftime and during the National Anthem. It is stupid and unnessessary but they need to justify the incredible ticket prices so they give the people attending a fake concert for 20 minutes at halftime. For me it is just time for an extended bathroom and or food break.

So, you're saying that Bruce, Tom Petty, Paul and Prince all faked it?
Suddenly, I feel "fan inadequacy".

I know The Who didn't fake it. They sounded horrible. And I love The Who.

Especially with the temperature, if they had some shrinkage and they fell off then Janet Jackson would have been pretty tame in comparison.

Should have broken out the fire hats from the bssm daze! Rhcp's played Athens 40 watt in 87/88 w/ the socks on. The $8 cover was too much for this po boy...

Ps - re the lip syncing thing. REM didn't t do it for years for their videos, always recording the song again for the video track. Checkout their early vid compilation "r.e.m. succumbs" for the goods.
