Meade Skelton is a better singer than Linda Rondstat!
Posted by: ParkinsonLinda ()
Date: September 23, 2021 07:19PM

Linda Rondstat caterwaulled her way into our hearts over 50 years ago but Meade can actually sing, write, and play an instrument. She wasn't even that pretty. Meade has a very amazing voice. We don't want to hear Linda Rondstat sing. It sounds like cats on a fence!

When she was performing, Linda Ronstadt had a distinctive voice and pretty amazing vibrato. She was able to convey a fair amount of emotion in her vocals. She earned the respect of her fellow musicians. She recorded two albums with Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris which show a rare three-part harmony. She has done many duets including one with Frank Sinatra. It isn't surprising that she had a successful music career.


Meade on the other hand has a generic voice with sing/song delivery and has absolutely nothing that sets him apart from the rest. He does need a full-time day job.

We know Meade never reads FFXU or posts here. We know this because Meade tells us he doesn't. Also, a humble guy like Meade would never start a thread on FFXU where he would be bragging about himself anonymously in the third person. The OP of this post could never be Meade.

By complete coincidence, Meade was thinking about Linda Ronstadt today!

He even started a thread about her on his theapricity site.

https://www.theapricity.com/forum/showthread.php?352506-Is-it-odd-that-I-don-t-care-for-Linda-Rondstat-s-singing


"She caterwaulled her way to the top. I feel like she pushes her voice hard on every song but no nuance and she just sings at the top of her lungs. It's not her fault, most female vocalists are this way. I don't like her. Patsy Cline was better or even Laura Branigan, but Linda is overrated and liberalism fried her brain."

There's nothing distinctive about Linda rhondstats voice . She sounds like all the other 1960s caterwaullers.

Meade has been bragging about himself anonymously in the third person on message boards for almost two decades. He has even admitted to it on this very forum. It is a part of his "Urban Dictionary" definition written in 2008.

That is the exact opposite of "Humility". That is vanity taken to the 8th degree.
Meade may think he is fooling people but he is not. More importantly, Meade is not fooling God.


People have checked out Meade's music from Meade's shameless self-promotions. That is the rub. People listen to a song of Meade, shrug their shoulders, then go support other singers.

So Meade decides to randomly bag on Ronstadt who was in her prime fifty years ago. She had a fairly decent career. She worked with a lot of amazing musicians. She got to SING in movies(including the lead in the film version of Gilbert and Sullivan's Operetta "Pirates of Penzance"). She made her television debut on "The Johnny Cash Show".


Tragically her physical problems did cut her career short.

Does Meade really think that trashing other singers is going to get people to like him more?

Meade's singing is above average. It's not really all that far above average.

Hence, when he tries out for things like "American Idol", he isn't good enough to make the cut. However, he isn't bad enough to get put up there to get laughed at.

Its all about style rather than the voice itself. What some think are great could be repulsive to others.

Meade claims to be a Monkees fan. Mike Nesmith made more money off Ronstadt's recording of "Different Drum" than all the money he made from The Monkees.

Personal tastes are one thing but there has to be some trends.

Nanci Griffith died last month and I know lots of people who just don't like her style and a few who think she is the best.

However, she had a worldwide cult following.

Meade can't even garner a cult following Richmond.

That doesn't negate the fact that his greatest musical success came from supporting Linda Ronstadt. Many actual musicians have respected her. Meade's petty and bitter jealously over her success means little.

Is his inability to accept criticism and make changes accordingly, his voice is "meh" pitchwise he is usually pretty damn close but his vibrato is god awful and way too fast. 6vps is what you should aim for meade. That's just what's wrong with his voice, the more important issues are his style and personality. The biggest thing holding him back is his need to be the star(he could get much further as a band member playing keyboard and adding subtle harmonies) and his unwillingness to adapt. He sings songs that quite frankly nobody wants to hear. Much less in his ridiculous interpretation of many of them. Yet no matter how long he has failed and gotten rejected and passed over he never accepts what people tell him, instead it's always "they dont have a clue... they're haters... they're jealous..." this is why hes a failure, and why he always will be. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

He gave an ultimatum that either the band be renamed "Meadow Street Band featuring Meade Skelton". They ultimately refused the suggestion and he walked. Last person who did that was Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere and the Raiders fame. Meade thinks he's like a Mark Lindsay. Ha!

Linda Ronstadt ( spelled correctly) was awarded multiple Grammys as voted on by her musical peers. She had a vocal range, and a style which evoked emotion to the music buying public. Meade has no Grammys, has no range, and a style that appears doesn't appeal to anybody.

Please, Meade stop comparing yourself to accomplished musicians, songwriters, and singers.

And, Meade, why the hell are you not in Nashville RIGHT NOW for the Americana Songwriters Festival and Showcase? YOU WOULD THINK THIS SHOWCASE IS RIGHT UP YOUR ALLEY, BEING A PIANO PLAYING COWBOY SINGER AND SONGWRITER. Couldn't get a booking, Meade, maybe?

Success doesn't equal talent. We all know she had to help herself get to the top. Her "range" including singing at the top of her lungs like every song she was constipated and in pain. Meade has nuance and is more of an artist with his voice. Meade is amazing.

it doesn't follow that lack of success equates to having talent. Linda Ronstadt HAS Received the lifetime achievement grammy and has been inducted in the rock and roll hall of fame. Meade came in 13 one month for the best singer in all of Richmond.

Linda Ronstadt gets reaction videos where actual musicians analyze and praise her singing and guitar playing.

I would say he sings like a modern day Joe Walsh who, at a senior age, wears dentures, and has throat issues.

Why did Meade stay in Richmond if he was serious about making it in the music industry? He needed to move to a music capital, Nashville, Austin, New York or LA and pound the pavement if he wanted to start playing gigs that might lead somewhere. Even the "Meade would be great in Branson" will never come to pass unless he actually moves to Branson. Meade might fail when he gets to Branson, but unless he is willing to try, prophesizing about his success there is a pretty moot point.

Linda Ronstadt's natural vocal range spans several octaves from Contralto to Soprano.

Meade's range is nowhere close.

STFU.

Most of the people you listed weren't primarily musicans.

And in Joe Cocker's case, he is in that category with singers like Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams and Dylan himself. That category where their voices aren't technically pretty at all but they can convey more soul in a single verse than Meade has been able to muster up in his entire singing career.
That is the biggest problem with Meade. His voice just doesn't have that distinctive compelling quality that makes people want to hear more of it.

Meade who be an instant sensation if he put on that Indian buckskin outfit and sing the famous Paul Revere and the Raiders, featuring Mark Lindsay, song "Cherokee People" or even Cher's hit "Half Breed".

Meade has seemed to wasted decades on music which very few people like and even fewer are willing to support.

He should have focused his efforts on something people enjoy seeing him do!

Actually, she is mexican and german.

I listened to some of her songs on youtube. She actually was pretty fucking good in her prime. "Blue Bayou", "Different Drum", "you're no good" are great. They do sound like "the seventies" which is okay...

We don't give Meade enough credit. When he claims he sings better than someone, that person is well worth investigating.

"Poor Poor Pitiful Me" was a hit for Linda in the 1970s. If you could you might want to check it out on Youtube. And by the by Meade...also check out how many views she got on that song. Lousy singer??? I rest my case.

This is a duet with Johnny Cash from 1969. It is one of those mournful bluegrass things.
The contrast between the two timbres of the two singers makes a great rendition of this classic.

It turns out Ronstadt recorded it for one of her albums.
The recording has Dolly Parton singing back up!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vskhs-d6RCc

I can hear Dolly now..." I can't believe it. I'm going to sing back up to that caterwauler Linda Ronstadt. Hopefully one day an ubermensch, young-looking, handsome singer comes along and treats us all to songs about "sweet tea". and save us all from these dime a dozen girl singers."

There's no such thing as a 7 octave range. The human voice cannot expand like that. Even classically trained opera singers reach 4 or 5 octave range which is pushing it. Linda was probably 4 octave. Meade is 3.5

Another thing about this day and age is amateur acts can upload their music and garner small but devoted followings. Meade has been uploading his songs to his music channel for 14 years and his small and devoted following is three or four people.

Meade has mentioned on several occasions that he hates the sound of most women's singing voices. It isn't surprising he thinks he sings better than the lifetime achievement Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Linda Ronstadt.

Do you think Meade's fem vocals are intimidated by a woman whose voice is both powerful and delicate?

Meade may well be a better singer today than Linda Ronstadt today. She has Parkinsons and retired a decade ago. In her prime Linda was damned good. That does not mean there were not many other female singers in her day who were not just as good...or better. Those are the breaks in the music industry.

Linda Ronstadt wasn't a song writer. The songs she turned into hits were written by someone else. The same is true of many other famous singers. Dolly Parton could sing. She could also write songs, and she was a shrewd business woman.

Even though she’s in her 70s, has Parkinson’s and hasn’t sung in decades, she’s still infinitely a better singer than Meade. It isn’t even close.

Meade's voice has always been "fine". Where he got the idea that it would be good enough for a solo career is beyond me. However, he hasn't done shit to maintain his voice and it is deteriorating. His added weight seems to be adding to this. He gasps for air after just a few verses. Weezing is never a sound you want to hear in a vocalist. Furthermore, his age and body shape are becoming really unpleasant to look at when he performs. Looking the way he does, he is going to have to sound like a male Susan Boyle to get any attention at all. He doesn't. If Meade really wants to become self-supporting in the near future, he might want to do things people would pay him to do. Singing is never going to pay Meade's bills.

There are a lot of "one-hit wonders" who may have gotten their short fame due to the casting couch. But after that one hit, they needed the talent to have the type of staying power that Linda Ronstadt had. She did get inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame. That is voted on by professional musicians. She may have been the weakest link of "The Trio" with Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris. But seriously has there ever been a more natural and amazing three-part harmony than that? Not surprisingly, all three of them eventually individually won the Grammy for lifetime achievement.

Our opinions and Meade's opinion don't really mean that much when she has been adored by professional musicians.

Here is a video of Ronstadt getting the Kennedy Center honors.

The Pantheon of Great Rock and Roll vocalists is well populated with people who were lousy singers. Linda Ronstadt made a name for herself belting out pop hits in a honky tonk style, but the girl could sing. That is probably more than your favorite rock vocalists can claim.

Ronstadt sang music people want to listen to.
Meade does not.

Meade is a pretty shitty yodeler when compared to professional yodelers.

If Meade was smart he'd grow a hairy mustache, hire 3 singers like himself and form a Barbershop Quartet. He has a good vocal range for this style of music ,and "Barbershoping", as it is known, is pretty popular in this area of the south.

I know for a fact that music historians impressed with the arrangement, rate Sweet Tea as Meade's greatest effort so far. It has been called "a seductive Old South musical treat" by a authority on Southern music at the Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts.

This is true. Like the devil who went down to Georgia, she laid her voice at Meade’s feet because she knew she’d been beat.

Then Meade woke up and he realized no one wants to listen to his mediocre music.

Which music historians?

Who exactly said that quote?

So far? The song is like 10 years old.
I call BS on the validity of your claim.

If that was even remotely true, Meade would have been invited to do something for that college and Meade himself would not shut up about it.

Meade is a lolcow. Even with his best bit "The Chinese Thing" we aren't laughing with him. We are laughing at him. Remember the first time he pulled it out? It was out of the blue. I was thinking, "What kind of racist throw-back thinks this sort of thing is acceptable in the 21at century?". He would defend it by citing things from over 50 years ago. "Breakfast at Tiffany's" hasn't aged well because of Mickey Rooney's depiction of a "Chinaman". If you have to go back that far, that is a good sign that it may not fly today.


Not that those sorts of depictions haven't been done in the 21st century. In "Always Sunny in Philadelphia", Sweet Dee pulls out all kinds of exaggerated racial stereotypes because she thinks they are funny and she is rightfully mocked by the other characters for doing so. So when Meade acts that way in real life, mocking happens.

And Meade's role model, Eric Cartman has done it too.

How goddamn pathetic is it for a 40 year old man to sit around and anonymously kiss his own ass on the internet?I'd rather blow my freaking brains out, at least he'd get some publicity then, as an obituary, he'll he could have made a few headlines if he had done it at the monument removal.

Meade seems to get more desperate the older he gets. Maybe it's the older his meal-ticket father gets. Listening to a song by Meade is just a click away. No matter how much he praises himself, one-click shows he really is overestimating his appeal.

Really? Is picking a semantic argument the best you can do?

Succeeding in a solo career is a weird mix of talent and charisma. People with a lot of talent can get by with less charisma. People with less talent can get by with more charisma. Meade most likely just didn't have enough of either to stand out.


Meade also has a major discipline problem where he does what he wants to do and nothing else at all. He thought flooding forums anonymously would be just as good as hanging at in the music scene and LISTENING to other acts and get live performance experience by being a pickup player.

His other problem is that he doesn't take constructive criticism well at all.
He has been doing this for a long time. His songwriting hasn't matured. His keyboard playing hasn't matured. It is like he is still offering up the same level of stuff as he did when he was starting out. He just doesn't look or sound as fresh as he once did.

Meade has talent, looks, and charisma. Like Vincent Van Go, he is not appreciated in his time.

You are not the next Van Gogh.

Your music makes the listeners want to cut their ears off.

Hopefully, Meade's Vincent Van Gogh hallucination doesn't lead to Meade cutting his ear off. Meade's hearing is already impaired to the point he cannot differentiate between good and bad music.

Of course, suicide might be a great final chapter for Meade.

Answer me that? Success is a hard thing to define. Success to some is raising good kids, to others it is material wealth, to others it is a loving soul mate. Meade makes folks smile, he makes children laugh. He brings pleasure to many, he is loved by them all. Meade is a success, because he touches all those things.

It is amazing how many self-supporting people can make others smile and children laugh.


Meade is in his forties and is still mooching off his family and the Government.
That is a big steamy pile of FAILURE.

If Meade wanted to make a living in music, why did he stay in Richmond?
There doesn't seem like there are a lot of opportunities in the Entertainment Industry in Richmond.

Did he really think all it took was for some influential music person to see his videos and they would whisk him off to fame and fortune?
