Corey Feldman, Still Alive and Trying

Yesterday Stereogum reported that a St. Louis Cardinals minor league affiliate called the State College Spikes issued an apology for an appearance by Corey Feldman at one of their games. Feldman was given the opportunity to throw out the first pitch and then put on a performance as Corey Feldman & The Angels, which is a band that exists. Apparently people thought The Angels were a little too under-dressed, but it seems the performance itself was what came off as most offensive. It was so bad, in fact, that it was mentioned in the team’s official statement.

I am not the type of person that is willing to get up in front of a baseball stadium and perform a song, so I guess I have to give anyone who is able to do that a little credit, even if the stadium in question only managed to sell slightly more tickets than a White Sox game. However, having the guts to get in front of a crowd and having the talent to belong in front of a crowd are two different things, and Corey’s band certainly lacks the latter. I don’t know what it’s like to be completely hard up for money (this site pulls in billions every quarter), but this whole attempt by CorFeld to stay in the limelight seems pretty desperate. Does anyone remember his 2013 video for the song “Ascension Millennium,” which sounded like it was made by a twelve-year-old using Fruity Loops? At least we should hope this is just desperation, because after watching the video of the performance below, I think we are all going to want to believe that the whole charade was done for something outside of true self-belief in talent.
