(hennemusic) Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has written an op-ed piece for Billboard regarding the controversy over the Red Hot Chili Peppers' mimed performance during the Super Bowl 48 halftime show in New Jersey on Sunday.
Rose wrote, 'In The Name Of Science. In regard to the internet's "no wireless" controversy regarding the Red Hot Chili Peppers Superbowl performance as reported on ESPN...
'I enjoyed the show and I've no idea what the real story is nor would I want to suggest or imply anyone wasn't actually performing or that what they were playing wasn't what we actually heard. That said I feel it's important to always look on the positive side of things and to give the benefit of doubt.
'So consider that maybe sometime before their actual performance that rather than use a guitar cord or standard wireless, that in the name of science and for all mankind Flea courageously had a newly invented breakthrough in microchip technology installed in his a** that picked up the frequencies of his ba** and transmitted them to his amplifier.
'Maybe they all had microchips installed in their a**es and not only pick up the frequencies of their instruments but get Direct TV and the internet too! Like Google Glass... Google A**! They could be "Scientific Pioneers!" Like Buzz Aldrin and sh*t! True (pardon the pun)A**-tro-nots! Or like Superbowl crash test dummies for bands kinda like those cars that drive themselves!
'And besides... If the band wasn't really playing or wireless or whatever and Anthony was really singing they may have set a new world record for the largest karaoke audience ever! Awesome!' Read the rest here and see a video of the performance.
