It doesn't matter who he was, or what he did, not any more.
What matters is that he re-awakened the idea of a Romantic hero.
He inspired the imaginations of millions, and offered hope to anyone who ever believed in something.
He represents passion vs rationality, because he gave his very life for what was in his heart.
It doesn't matter if he was a failure, or even a bad man, because he represents the human soul in a way unlike anyone else of the 20th century.
Hasta la Victoria Siempre!
Mr. MacPhisto is one of Bono's (the lead singer of U2) alter-egos.
MachPhisto, portrayed at the Devil, is a washed up rock star, trying to give himself a dignified end in Vegas.
He is The Fly, after the evil of The Fly (his megalomania, self obsession, lust for power) has turned into a want of money and legacy.
Why Bono chose to become this character is confusing at best, but Mr. Machphisto did not continue after the end of the Zooropa tour.
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money...
Fever... getting higher.
Meaning very good.
Incidentally, the adjective has a somewhat strange history.
It originally comes from Mechano, a British model construction kit. When it first came out in the 50s and 60s, there were 2 different kits available - the Box Standard and the Box Deluxe.
Over time, Box Standard gave birth to the phrase Bog Standard
, meaning very average.
Conversely, the spoonerism of Box Deluxe sounds very similar to Dogs Bollocks, for which the meaning of above average was attached.
That's the Dog's Bollocks!
