So today was the AFL Grand Final in Australia and (as seems to occur more and more often) the game was opened by a washed up has-been from overseas. I don't think I've ever heard such a woeful performance on such a big stage, but it definitely has lulz value for The Pit.

Enjoy?

There's been a lot of criticism on it, so it must have been pretty bad. I didn't watch it, because the whole pregame shit annoys me.

Just about everyone I know was going for Collingwood. There's gonna be a few wet pillows tonight.

So you would have preferred a local washed-up has been. Like Jason Donovan. Or Michael Hutchence?

Well Michael Hutchence would have been quite a shock... but yes, if we are going to put a has-been on stage, it may as well be a cheap has-been. Or, you know, a good local artist.

Lol. Props to whoever did the mixing - mixed his voice right out of it. Seriously though, Cold Chisel should play the Grand Final every year until one of them dies.

Are you saying Iron Maiden can't deliver live anymore? Cause I've seen them twice, both times excellent, in 2007, and 2011, my dads seen them 6 times, 1983, 1992, 2004, 2007, 2011, and says they get better each time...

Totally dude. IRON MAIDEN RULES. UP THE IRONS!

I thought this was going to be about that terrible infomercial for the meatloaf tin with the disgusting grey meatloaf.

I saw Maiden early this year, and truth be told, I was actually sort of bored.

Agreed, I saw them a few times back in the early days, and they just don't do it for me like they used to anymore.

Don't get me wrong, they're a damn good band, they're just not as good live as they used to be.

I'd never seen them before, expected a good show, and was disappointed.
Lots of people loved it, but I don't know, maybe they aren't good with festival crowds

Yes they are. Some of my friends saw them at Sonisphere and said they were incredible.

Also, watch Rock in Rio.

I remember in a tigers v collingwood game in april they got airborne to play pregame, however I was there a few hours before the bounce and rather than a soundcheck all I heard was their song being played on the P.A over and over and what I was hearing was that it was being EQ'd and shiz by a tech.

Pretty dubious if you ask me...dubious as.

No talk of the game?

I think it was an awesome game up until the final quarter... and I was going for Geelong. It just seemed like Collingwood gave up after putting up such a fight, and even staying in the lead for a while.

I've honestly never actually listened to Bat Outta Hell. People love it, so I know I'm missing something, but oddly enough for such a big record, I can't find a copy.

Anyway, maybe I'm just hazy because I just got up, but the first two songs weren't that bad to me, not great or what I'd pay for a concert for, but listenable, but it seemed to start going to hell when he started talking about That and how he'll do anything but it for love.

When it got to Bat Outta Hell, the song everyone seems to say he murdered, it's not as bad as I was led in thinking it's going to be. Or at least until it got around 11:00 in. At that point it was cringeworthy.

The man is lucky he has the girl singing with him to keep him on track. Again, it could've been a lot worse to my ears, although maybe that's just because I haven't heard what it's supposed to sound like.

That said, even then, I can tell he's not hitting the right notes usually, and unfortunately, that seems to be more from trying to sing like he's twenty years younger than he is, which is something I always hate - I'd rather hear artists, when they get older, sing with a more comfortable melody or in a different octave, than try and fail to go where they used to.

Now, there are some cases where guys can still sing like that into their 60's(Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, etc.) and, if they take care of their voice, even their 80's(Tony Bennett. Hell, he's arguably better now than he was 40 years ago).

But every other famous singer getting up there, please, be honest, we won't begrudge you for changing the melody a little or going down an octave instead of up, but we don't want a night of notes that are close enough to be clear what you're shooting for, but far enough to be distinctly off.

Same, and I'm a big cats supporter.

It just became a bit too easy for geelong in the last quater, and blew the result out so that the end result didn't really reflect how the match was played IMO

But he's Bob Catley. He is timeless and ageless.

Massive cool points for being a fan of my favourite singer.

John Farnham too, he's 60+. Also not lost a step.

Damn right. Bob Catley is the most underrated singer in rock.

That said, Meat Loaf's latest record Hang Cool Teddy Bear was amazing.
