The Who Win Best Press Conference of the Week

The Who will perform at halftime of Super Bowl 44 and to pump up the hype for their performance, the band played three songs for a media audience today at the Super Bowl media center. ↵

↵Before I get to the videos, there were two bits worth mentioning in the Q&A. First, Pete Townshend made note of the fact that because most NFL games are reportedly boiled down to about 11 minutes of action, the band might be working longer than the teams. Also of note: someone did bring up the whole child pornography story with the final question before an encore song. Talk about a way to suck the life out of the room. Anyway, that buzzkill aside, the performance was a cool experience. ↵

↵Check it out, through the magic of YouTube. (And sorry if there's any vague profanity from me in the background of the last video. Photographer with no manners, down in front!) ↵
