Sandra MIller's Daily Buzz: Jimi's final interview & The Chili Peps come clean on their super fake Super Bowl performance

Written by Sandra Miller. Posted in Sandra's Daily Buzz

PBS's digital studios has taken Jimi Hendrix's final interview before his death and set it to animation for their Blank on Blank series. The theme of the series is "famous names, lost interviews." The interview is from September 11, 1970. Check it out...

The pictures and accusations have been floating around all week about how The Red Hot Chili Peppers were totally unplugged and faking that they were playing their instruments. Flea issued a statement saying that the NFL allows live vocals, but is very strict aboutinstruments being pre-recorded. They have very little time to get the halftime show done and will not let poor quality sound interfere with the halftime show. Flea admits the band is very set against faking and miming their music, but agreed this was a once in a lifetime thing to be on the halftime show of the Super Bowl and went ahead with the gig - but purposely did not plug in - which would have avoided the controversy - but "thought better to not pretend."

"When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL's stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.
