| Great, If You're A Fan. If You're Not....
There have been many videos and DVD's like this, usually about a legendary performer doing shows or interviews. This film is about Meatloaf as he prepares to embark on an 18 month tour with his band. You get the meet him, and you have to admire his drive and dedication. His band, which includes former Utopia bassist Kasim Sultan, is very professional and give little insights into him. The man itself is 59 when this film was done, and he looks pretty good, but the shows understandably exhaust him (they even did in the 70's, he is that kind of performer). Obstensibly, though, this is for fans. I would have liked to see more music, thats what people go to see. This is not really a retrospective, because if it was they'd probably try to get Todd Rundgren (producer of "Bat Out Of Hell") and the Loaf's former partner, Jim Steinman. I am not a big fan, but I respect the man, and he really cares about his music. He deserves the success he has had, and this is a pretty good documentary of him. I saw it in High Definition, which is recommended.
