Even Roger Daltrey was underwhelmed by The Who's half-time show.

"I thought it went OK," the band's lead singer told ESPN.com of their 12-minute Super Bowl performance.

"I understand. It's a TV show. Cameras were everywhere," he added. "I was so blinded that I couldn't see."

Daltrey, 65, said those in the stadium weren't exactly into the five-song medley of their greatest hits either.

"I really wished the crowd would have gotten into singing the songs with us more. That's how it is in Europe for our soccer matches. I wanted more banter," he complained.

Guitarist Pete Townshend, 64, defended the group's performance.

"We were trying to put on a great show," he said. "We had as much fun as we could have."

Critics were lukewarm on the half time show. While the Boston Herald called it "12 minutes of great rock 'n' roll," the Chicago Sun-Times said they were "woefully flat and out of sync" and the Dallas Morning News wrote, "the stage was the most exciting part of the show."
