    I saw him open for Aerosmith a few years back, and much of the show was tracked. Sounded great.

    Those halftime shows always come off bad. I've always been more of a dog chasing a Frisbee kind of guy anyway.!

    Different deal.
    The Milli Vanilli dudes didn't even sing on their recordings.
    Lip syncing has been going on forever.
    Remember the Beatles? They did lots of it.
    Remember Whitney Houston's Star Spangled Banner Super Bowl XXV 1991 that everyone thought was the best performance ever in the entire history of the world, etc.?
    Lip synced.

    Nothing but admiration and praise for the band's wardrobe. They looked marvelous. I thought combining the shiny cape and the UGG boots was brilliant. :dude They are truly the epitome of high fashion and I'm going to talk to my mates about changing our onstage presentation after watching this.

    I feel so silly for ever having worn cargo shorts on stage.

    I know, more of a blanket statement on my part. Still, I think something is lost in music when the bands or singers can't do what they did in the studio live. And with modern production, you'd think it's possible for guys that can bring it live to not have technical problems or get torn to shreds for a clam. I'm just not into (fabricated) perfection at the expense of humanity.

    Lets just accept that any halftime show is going to be canned corn and move on.

    At least we got to see a titty that one time:tapedshut

    Sure, but I doubt the artists have a choice.
    Pre recorded material is used to avoid problems in a very tight time frame window.
    That decision is made by some production manager up the chain.
    I don't doubt Lenny could pull off that live show playing/performance wise, but there are just too many things that could go wrong on the broadcast side, so its canned.

    The problem is almost everything is canned these days and it has become acceptable practice. In my book it's fake or cheating...

    At least you read it right. At first, I thought it was Lemmy, and I thought, "how in the hell did Motorhead end up playing a halftime show?"

    :jo

    ULL marching band. We did that show with Pete Fountain, Doug Kershaw, a couple other college bands, and some kids from Up With People.

    When this is done if something goes wrong, it's even worse in my opinion.
    People ae more forgiving of problems that come up in the natural progression of events.

    Pretty disgusting. I did a single in the 90's. Not being an Acoustic kind of Guy , I thought people would have problems with my using Backing Tracks. I tried to keep them simple for the most part. I think in the space of 6 or 7 years I got but a couple of complaints about them. But at least I recorded and played on hundreds of them myself. At the time the MIDI tracks were pretty terrible. Didn't mess with them.
    My playing ,singing and Harmonica playing were real. I sang 3-4 hours a night. Mostly weekend but sometimes 3/4/5 nights a week.
    Your telling me he can't manage ONE tune ? Really bugs me when I hear one of these people whine about playing or singing an hour or two a week.

    How do you even break a string when you're not really playing?

    We did two Christmas TV performances this last week. We pre-recorded ourselves playing the songs in a live setting and "lip synced" to our own track. Vocals were live. Lot of folks doing that these days.
    Makes things a lot safer. We've also done it totally live many times. Mix is hit or miss. Usually not allowed to use your own sound guy to mix.
