For the Super Bowl 50 halftime entertainment hosted by the San Francisco Bay Area, the NFL really fumbled the ball when they passed on homies Metallica as "too heavy for halftime". So the band threw their own party the night before in Golden Gate Park, from where this terrific performance of "Wherever I May Roam" comes, shared just ahead of the "Black Album"  thirtieth anniversary.

the excellent rock documentary film "Twenty Feet from Stardom",  which features interviews with both Lisa Fisher and Mick Jagger who sing this, here is a stunning example of why that story needed to be told.

Did you know that the late David Bowie pioneered the art and technology "livestreaming" even before the new millennium?
