    I'm just kind of amazed that someone — anyone — paid for a ticket to hear Meat Loaf in concert. Entertainment options in Edmonton must be awfully goddamned thin.

    Not especially. I mean, yeah I'll listen to his music on the radio when it's on, won't immediately switch stations, but...

    ... go to a Meat Loaf concert? Why?

    Hope he gets better. I loved his debate with William F. Buckley

    "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" is the most insufferable eight-and-a-half minutes in any karaoke bar on the planet.

    Maybe they are hoping son in law will make a guest appearance at a show?

    I mean, he did record the fourth or fifth highest-selling album of all time. He's not my cup of tea, but he's not exactly toiling in obscurity.

    I just wonder about the quality of his live shows, as he always seemed like the quintessential studio creation to me.

    I went to a live show about 20 years or so, and, while it was a fun show, "Paradise By The Dashboard Light" had some insufferable minutes when Loaf and the woman singer stopped it halfway through and turned it into a debate about how guys and women view sex. Yes, a debate.

    Well, the Oilers' season has been over for nearly three months.

    But the original is one of the greatest goddamn pieces of musical theater, and forever will be.
