The 23 Best 'Simpsons' Musician Cameos

by AOL Music Staff, posted Oct 15th 2011 3:00PM
When we heard 'The Simpsons' was on the verge of cancellation, we started reminiscing about all the rockers and rappers that have appeared on the show throughout its 23-season existence. With that in mind, we decided to compile this list of our favorite musician cameos, and here's hoping to many more now that the show has been renewed.

'Miami Medical' - 'Pilot' Recap (Series Premiere)

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 3rd 2010 2:08AM
Like CBS's other medical drama for this TV season, 'Three Rivers,' 'Miami Medical' is very earnest and filled with moments that strive for poignancy. The fact that it doesn't succeed is less a reflection on the network than the creators. At least CBS gets credit for realizing that 'Miami Medical' was less that the sum of its aspirations and planted it in the little viewed Friday, 10 PM time slot.

Super Bowl XL: The Rolling Stones

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Feb 5th 2006 11:20PM

The excitement that is rock and roll, by and large, has always had difficulty coming across on television. The television screen puts limitations on the visuals of a rock and roll show, especially the feedback the crowd gives the band when they're playing well. Plus, rock and roll is meant to play loud, and no matter how loud you put the volume up on your television, most of the time it just doesn't translate.

However, there have been a few times where rock and roll has transcended the television screen and brought across truly memorable moments. Of course, when The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, it was such an historic event that what you heard didn't matter--it was only what you saw. A few years ago, U2 played at halftime of the Super Bowl, and again, although the sound was a bit murky, their performance was so mesmerizing that people still talk about.

This year's Super Bowl halftime show featured The Rolling Stones. As big a fan as I am (I've seen them live over 20 times), I was curious to see how they would come across on television. They've been appearing on TV for over 40 years, so they know the drill, and Mick Jagger certainly knows how to play to the cameras.

Casting call for young Stones fans

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 4th 2006 3:13PM
Here's a way for you and 20 of your closest friends to go to the Super Bowl: act crazy about the Rolling Stones. The company that is planning the halftime performance for the Super Bowl just put out a casting call for 2,000 people to be the crowd on the football field when the Stones perform. The only catch? You've gotta be younger than 45. That leaves out a good chunk of the Stones fan base, doesn't it? The halftime planners say they put the age limit on the participants because the role of the crowd is physically demanding because people will have to sing, dance, and act like they're all-out nutso for the Rolling Stones. Um, there are plenty of people over the age of 45 who do that whenever the Stones go on tour. I think the real reason is that the planners know many of the Stones fans are older, like the band, but old isn't cool! They want the Stones and halftime in general to appear young and hip. That's the key demographic, baby! Anyway, if you are between 18 and 45, have 20 friends who are willing to shake their booty, and happen to be in Detroit on February 5th, you can sign up to audition here.

The Rolling Stones to play at Super Bowl

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 2nd 2005 2:15PM

In what has to be the most boring, predictable news of the day, The Rolling Stones will play during the half-time show of the Super Bowl game in February. Let's just hope that Mick doesn't rip off Keith's shirt.

Seriously, rock n' roll is a young person's game. I don't want to see 60somethings rockin' during the Super Bowl or any other bowl, no matter how legendary and great they are.

McGraw and Kimmel join Monday Night Football

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 10th 2005 4:40PM

Jimmy KimmelHe'll be singing a new version of "I Like It, I Love It" during halftime game highlights. No, not Jimmy Kimmel, I'm talking about singer Tim McGraw! Kimmel will be doing monologues during halftime.

So now we'll have McGraw, Kimmel, and The Rolling Stones on the Monday Night Football broadcast. And I never thought I'd write a sentence like that.

Stones rock for the NFL

by Chris Thilk, posted Aug 9th 2005 6:24PM

I'd been wondering about this since watching the Bears/Dolphins game last night.

The Rolling Stones are partnering with the NFL to create introductions and other spots for the upcoming Monday Night Football season. The deal will have the decades-old band featured in a variety of segments duing the MNF broadcasts, beginning with the Sept. 8th game, which will feautre footage from a Detroit concert just a week prior. Not only is this expected to be a shot in the arm for the NFL, who will still use the "Are You Ready For Some Football" song in addition to this, but good for the Stones, who will use the spots as a way to promote their upcoming record The Bigger Bang.
