Townshend Discusses The Who’s Super Bowl Medley

1 min read

As CSI Files previously reported, rock band The Who performed at the Super Bowl XLIV Halftime Show this past Sunday, February 7. The band is responsible for all three CSI theme songs: “Who Are You” for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami‘s “Won’t Get Fooled Again” and “Baba O’Riley” for CSI: New York—all of which were included in the 12-minute medley of songs during the halftime show. Guitarist Pete Townshend said bandmate Roger Daltrey and Townshend’s brother Simon (who plays guitar for the band on tour) came up with the idea for the medley.

“I thought we’d just do the CSI songs,” Townshend said. “My pitch was just to do three regular-length songs. We could fall back on what was very familiar. But Roger felt he needed something that gave him more narrative scope, as he described it. He and Simon and one of the lieutenants in the crew put together a track and surprisingly I thought it worked really well. Roger and I have a great relationship these days; it’s very warm and close. So I trusted him to do that job.”
