    Jimi Hendrix confrimed to play Super Bowl XLV

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/story?id=09...s&confirm=true

    The NFL decided to make an early decision regarding its chamionship game. In a statement released today, the league announced that legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix would be playing the Super Bowl halftime show.

    "We know that there may be some problems bringing him on stage, the first one being that he's dead," Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke. "However, we feel he'd be the perfect fit given our recent choice of artists. I'm sure everyone will be excited to receive this news."

    Of course, Hendrix is bound to be pretty decomposed by now, but that didn't deter Goodell's enthusiasm.

    "We'll probably need some makeup, but that's okay. Plus, plastic surgery these days can work miracles," he said.

    Preparation to unearth the axe-swinging rocker will commence soon. Meanwhile, some former colleagues expressed excitement at the chance to be reunited with Hendrix.

    "I don't know why him being dead is a problem," claimed former Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell. "People didn't mind it when Tom Petty played in Super Bowl XLII."


    :P

    That's just ridiculous.

    Everyone knows that undead Bruce Springsteen played Super Bowl XLIII. Undead Tom Petty played Super Bowl XLII.

    :P

    Since the next Super Bowl will be played in North Texas, they would prefer a country act.

    And Johnny Cash has been dead for less than a decade, compared to Hendrix, who has been dead for 40 years now.

    Unfortunately, Mitch Mitchell died last year. Should have quoted Buddy Miles.

    With minor modifications "Hey Joe" could be performed for Ray Ray the non-tackler.

    My bad on the confusion between XLII and XLIII. Silly me.

    Buddy Miles died Feb of 2008. Noel Redding died in 2003.

    Billy Cox is the only one left.
