Grandpa Petty to Headline Super Bowl Half Time Show


It appears the NFL is still sprinting as fast and as far as it can from another wardrobe malfunction with the apparent solution being the older the rocker, the less likely they'll be to even consider exposing the crinkles that lay beneath their clothing. Unlike Janet Jackson, who exposed some fairly fresh looking breast flesh four years ago at the Super Bowl, it's unlikely this year's half time artist, Tom Petty, will leave any possibility his not so young chest - or any other body part - will be seen by the world's eyeballs.

Yes, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, a band that was popular something like 200 years ago will take center stage for Super Bowl XLII February 3 at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Stay tuned for our review. Last year, you hated what we had to say about Prince. Just imagine what will have to say about this guy once he takes the stage.

What are you talking about? Petty still rocks hard - his latest album is fantastic and the old stuff is still playing all over the radio.

Tom Petty is 100 times better than prince. I agree with their choice for once.

'Kay him grandpa, but he still attracts millions to see him. Will anybody still remember you when you're old as grandpa petty?

Well, Tom hasn't made headlines for being arrested, or written songs laced with the "N" word, been to celebrity rehab (that I know of), and actually sings songs. Yeah, dump the old fart and give me Ghostface Killah, a real musical icon. Or Britney, she rocks! Can't wait until 30 years from now, young people will be laughing at grandpa Justin Timberlake and... never mind, they've started already.
