“Somebody Take My Picture…”

22 Apr

This will be brief – there’s nothing I can write that someone else hasn’t already written, and far more eloquently.

Super Bowl XLI: Pepsi Halftime Show

Deadspin has posted the entire 2007 Superbowl Halftime show, in which His Royal Badness says “Somebody take my picture with all this rain.” During a driving Miami rainstorm, he didn’t miss a beat. He displayed his legendary professionalism and dedication to performance and hit every note, brought everything to the table and held nothing back. My heart swelled when everyone ran out onto the field, and then again when that giant sheet went up.

He was a legend, one of the titans of modern pop music.

Rather than leave things on a low note, I’d rather get things started. Let’s not let that elevator break us down.

    I have my own digital copy of that halftime show, pulled off of my TiVo back when it was fresh. It’s a fantastic show. His Royal Purple Badness will be missed.

      I think he’s someone that future generations will be fascinated with. He’ll become one of those people they’ll see in Rock Star collages and recognize him, and if they’re really curious they’ll check him out and fall in love like we did. He will DEFINITELY be missed though.
