It was three years ago this Super Bowl Sunday (February 7th, 2010), that the Who performed a medley of five of their classic songs at the halftime show during the Super Bowl at Mia mi's Sun Life Stadium. The band performed a nearly 12-minute set featuring abbreviated versions of "Pinball Wizard," "Baba O'Riley," "Who Are You?," "See Me, Feel Me," and "Won't Get Fooled Again."
Joining the band on stage was their longtime backline featuring Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey on drums, John "Rabbit" Bundrick on keyboards, Pino Palladino on bass, and Pete Townshend's younger brother Simon Townshend on rhythm guitar.
Unlike the Who's usual live shows, Townshend -- decked out in black shades and trilby hat -- kicked off "Pinball Wizard" with his modified acoustic Gibson J-200, before switching to his usual red Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster for the duration of the set. Zak Starkey was playing a clear D.W. drum kit with Zildjian cymbals painted with the Who's iconic red, white, and blue "mod"-era bullseye.

Kate Upton, one of the "it" models of the moment, appears in a sexy new teaser ad for Mercedes' Super Bowl commercial, and some are criticizing it as tacky and tasteless. The ad starts with a slow pan of upward of a scantily-clad Upton and then the screen goes blank before the words appear: "Kate Upton washes the New Mercedes CLA -- in Slow Motion." Upton then appears again, suggestively blowing bubbles out of her hand, and then the camera shifts over and we see that she is actually supervising a bunch of awestruck men in football jerseys who are the ones actually washing the car as they gape at her -- in slow motion. Brand expert and Forbes advertising blogger Dean Crutchfield told Yahoo! Shine that it's a, quote, "very risky" move for a luxury brand like Mercedes. He said, To have an ad that would be perceived as crass? That would potentially have a negative impact. The other side of it, though, is it stands out. And you want to do that."
It was 27 years ago tonight (January 23rd, 1986) that the first inductees entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony held at New York City's Waldorf-Astoria. The inaugural class of the Hall of Fame featured rock's forefathers: Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, Ray Charles, James Brown, Sam Cooke and Jerry Lee Lewis. Included in the Non-Performer category were Sun Records founder Sam Phillips and seminal disc jockey Alan Freed, whom many credit for actually coining the phrase "Rock And Roll."
Also inducted that night in the Early Influence category were blues icon Robert Johnson, country's Jimmie Rogers, and boogie-woogie pianist Jimmy Yancey. Columbia Records' legendary A&R man John Hammond, who was responsible for discovering Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen,and many others, received the Hall's first Lifetime Achievement Award.
The emotional inductions included Keith Richards' speech inducting Chuck Berry and John Lennon's sons Julian and Sean Lennon inducting their father's hero, Elvis Presley.
