    who cares. it sounded fine to me.

    well, maybe if you actually attended the bowl you might feel shortchanged, but no problem back here in australia.

    Where's the 'Who cares? I'm just happy the Pats lost' option?

    yeah, for real.
    Who cares if they lip synced the song?

    they were there, on stage, and you heard the music.

    Yeah and Tom Petty FTW. I just wish I could afford to see him this year, but it's WAY too expensive.

    Didn't sound perfect to me... Maybe I wasn't listening close enough.

    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers have put out good music consistently throughout their carrier, so what if they lip synced for a bunch of drunk football fans. [​IMG]

    Tom Petty's tunes aren't exactly breathtaking. I love his music, but no one would ever claim it takes extreme vocal or musical talent to kick out the jams he has over his career. It's all been a product of a lazy hippie, so it's something he can maintain for a lifetime.

    So disappointed that he didn't play Learning To Fly.

    Nuh that's not lip-syncing IMO. He's just got mad effects going I reckon.



    JPH: I'd feel short changed if he really did lip-sync. You go to see the actual band play not listen to a recording.

    I hope not. The first album I bought my parents didn't like was TP. I still have a soft spot for him and can sing a lot of their songs from memory. He's a great musician and I would lose a lot of respect for him if he did lip sync.

    If artists pretend, I don't see the use of them being on stage to begin with. Might as well put a damn cardboard cutout on there.
