Media Musings Blog Archive Soggy Meatloaf a warm
Chaussure foot homme mercurial superfly v ag while the pies army were beaten on the day, the biggest let down of the Grand Final happened before the ball had even been bounced when an undercooked Meatloaf left a bad taste in the mouths of all within earshot.
While not to everyone musical tastes, there no doubting Meatloaf was an A grade star for the AFL big day. His 1977 album Bat out of Hell remains Australia second highest selling album of all time.
Writing in The Age the Monday after the game, Karl Quinn likened the performance to an on stage death, a steaming pile, and therapy inducing for the audience.
The Herald Sun was only marginally kinder, describing the performance as and AFL CEO Andrew Demetriou (a self proffessed fan) could only say gave it his best what were people expecting? This is a man who looked like he might collapse when he sang in the 70s. Even if he was a clean living saint, 35 years of performing is going to put some sort of toll on your voice.
The reporting on the performance has, for whatever reason, largely neglected to question the AFL motives in booking Meatloaf in the first place. Clearly Andrew Demetriou wants to make the Grand Final a spectacle, and wants to attract the biggest names in the business to make this happen.
The blame here should not be on Mr Loaf (as he became known), but on the AFL for reportedly throwing $600,000 at him for one 12 minute song. I don really care how bad a singer or performer you are, if I was offered that sort of money I take it and run!
It has been long known that Meatloaf does not have the voice he once possessed, so why did none of the media hold the AFL to account for their initial blunder?
The Herald Sun has form in this regard. When the Kim Duthie/Ricky Nixon saga came out, almost all the coverage was of the two faces of the story rather than underlying cultural issues at play in the football world.
I not for a second saying that Meatloaf didn deserve a bake for his show, but a bit of balance from the media coverage would have been welcome. It very easy to point the finger at the guy at the front, but what mercurial superfly v ag about the big wigs who put him there?
Every single time an ageing rock/pop star has a sub excellent performance the haters come a knockin They did it to Whitney when she came out here last year, Dylan is practically a walking corpse if you catch his recent reviews and they even canned the great Robert Plant in the early 2000s when he and Jimmy Page played a bunch of shows. Unfortunately tall poppy syndrome is as Australian as the term un Australian is not Australian. Bagging a superstar is just one of those things that Australians like to do. Sports stars, actors and musicians are mercurial superfly v ag always in the firing line, and get even more of a blast when they do something a little less satisfactorily than they usually do. Frankly it pisses me off. Like sports stars, musicianship (particularly singing) requires a physical element. Singers who could soar in their 20s will no doubt encounter some wear and tear to their voice by the time they old and saggy. Throw in sex, drugs and rock roll and this wear and chaussure foot homme tear is magnified. Leave the greats alone, appreciate being able to see them in the flesh before they all gone.
Amen gentlemen. I caught Bob Dylan this year and he was awesome, fast fading voice and all. Everyone love to complain about artists not playing the I like It would be hard to argue this for Mr. Loaf epic medley.
What the obsession with a performance anyway. I can even remember another halftime GF performance, this one is unforgettable.
I love bagging people out as much as the next guy, but when it comes to ageing stars, what to people expect? They been pushing it properly for years while most people just grind out at some job they hate for a few decades before fading into the night. Rock on Meatloaf. Enjoy that half mil.
